Well once again, many apologies for being completely AWOL around these parts lately but it is for good reason I promise - I have FINALLY got the market stall up and running!!! YAY!

For a first attempt it wasn't great, being a newbie I was last on the list to be allocated a pitch and what an awful one it was too! It was right down the end of the market where very few people venture and then it was outside a builders hoarding which took up half the pavement so anyone stopping at the stall soon got shuffled along by other pedestrians. That, mixed in with the freezing conditions and people's lack of spending (according to other traders so wasn't just me thankfully!) didn't make for a very profitable day.

But all is not lost, we got a helluva lot of interest and some great feedback and I have learnt so much already from Day 1 and I am determined to pick up, dust off and carry on.
Unfortunately I turned up this weekend and so did every other trader in the area so unfortunately I didn't manage to get a pitch, however I will be back on the 19th to give it another go so fingers crossed...
Bye for now x


  1. Looks like the early birds caught the worms this time. Never say die! Up and at 'em even earlier next time dear girl! Don't let them leave you with the draughty nooks and crannies.
    Well done for getting your stall up and running too.
    I wish you all the best and look forward to hearing that your tills have been ringing like jingle bells! lol
    Well done Dawn.
    Jeanie xx

  2. Thanks Jeanie! Unfortunately due to the snow and Christmas break I haven't been able to get back out there, I am absolutely itching to get back but it doesn't like I will be able to until February now, but I can't wait xx
