Well, I survived!
The car packer/unpacker/setter-upper (AKA Hubby) had to work away from home this past weekend, so it was going to be a real test to see if I could play the role of pack horse in my pink cowboy boots!
I managed to get ready, though only just on time. I was one of the first ones there at 7.15am, and one of the last ones set up by 8.45am...
I missed hubby because he was away, but missed him all the more because of the six trips back and forth to the car to bring stuff in! And the six trips to pack the car at the end. Yes, I was the last to leave...
Anyhow, I had an awesome spot at the market - it was spacious and right near the entrance to another room of vendors, so basically everyone had to go past me, which was really cool.
(that's mine there on the right, above)
The Malvern Town Hall is so beautiful. Love the old historic town halls our great city has.
I had a fairly good day. Being the very first Modish Creators Market, you never know how many people are going to come.
I'm thinking the word will spread that it was awesome, and there will be more and more people coming once it gets to be known as a regular monthly market. The organisers are great, and really worked hard to make it a success.
I've signed myself up for August, September, October, November and December market dates.
(June 19th I can't do, Mum's turning 60 that day, it's not fair to ask her to babysit!!)
Now, I did go alone, but I wasn't alone all day... girlfriends came to visit!
Mandii in stripes (who was celebrating her birthday that day!) and Kirstie in the brown coat, came along with their families to check it out and say hi! I was stoked to see them again!!!
After they went for lunch, Kirstie and her girls (oh I could squeeze these girls to bits, they're so adorable!) came back and spoiled me rotten - with a cupcake, water and chewing gum! Precious!!!
Oh - and just to show you it's not all pretty, lol, the view from the back of my table. Eek! what a mess!
I'm doing some rethinking of my products and presentation and I'll run some ideas by you guys one day soon, but for now, I'll leave it so there's not too much to take in at once.
See you next time,
PS. To all the mothers out there, I hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day!
