Saturday, October 27

now how good was that!




 
 
what a FABULOUS fair you made once again!
 
Loads of wonderful stalls, so much to see (and buy!)
gorgeous cakes and reviving cuppas
and 100's of great customers-
what more could a stallholder possibly want?
 
Yes, it is a faff getting everything sorted priced and packed,
yes confidence does flicker a little
". . .is it the right price. . .will people like it. . ."
and yes, it is a precarious way to earn a living,
(over the past 30-odd years [oh no, is it REALLY that long!!]
I've done more stalls than I care to mention)
but when you have people like this organising a fair
you just KNOW everything possible has been done
to ensure a good day and I feel really honoured to be
included in some small part of it.
 
Lovely to have a catch-up with friends but alas no time
for a full-on goss, and great to meet new people
and put faces to blogs.
 
My feet are KILLING me, I'm gonna have a large
glass of wine in the bath and then slob out in front of the TV
with a supermarket Chindian takeaway-
Chinese starters and Indian mains.
 
it was a great day!

Sounds wonderful! I can well believe you sold out your very desirable stock. Hope you're enjoying a relaxing evening with a glass or two of wine.Cx

So glad you had a great and hopefully profitable fair, (that is if you didn't spend it all on the other lovely stalls). Sounds like a great time was had by all, so I'll join you in that glass of wine(not in the bath though) and say well done!

Sounds a brilliant day... I'm so pleased for you Elaine...
and let's face it a great and interesting way to earn a living. Good for you! Enjoy the wine and 'confusion' food.

It was great to see you again. Thank you so much for your kindness in giving me your mums cake slice for my wedding John cleaned it up and its come up so bright :-) I was really touched, your kindness makes me realise there are still wonderful people out there so thank you. Your little tin has taken pride of place on my larder shelf. So glad you had a productive day to and its refreshing to hear you still worry over the pricing etc all these years on i think thats one of the hardest things for all stall holders, Have a lovely week ahead, dee xx
