My First Market - the aftermath...

I did it.

I survived.

My first market.        

That is me doing a happy dance!  It was a great night - stinking hot - but fabulous weather for our lovely school twilight craft market.  I was overwhelmed by all of the support MooBeeTees received from the children and parents - it reinforced why I spend hours surrounded by fabric and up to my ears in ideas!

Now, keep in mind that I don't yet have all of the hard core market gear - you know, pop up canopies, trestle tables, signage, etc.  In fact one of the dads from the Fathers Club took pity on MooBeeGran and I and loaned us an umbrella - bless!   Here's a picture of the Hamster carefully looking after the stall:

Note my subtle nod to Christmas - just in case those of you in colder climates think I'm doing this in June!

It was only little, but it gave me a taste of what I could become addicted to - the monthly market.  For those of you who encouraged me - thanks!  This market paid for more stock - the next market might get me an umbrella!!!



  1. Congratulations on your first market! Definately invest in shade cover next - not fun getting sunburnt. Your little stall looked good :D

  2. Yay - well done on your first market. I have my first Solo market coming up soon and I still need to get a shade cover!! Had a laugh at you getting MooBeeGran to do some crochet as I have asked my Gran to get clicking on the needles to add some scarves , hats to fill up my stall space too..

  3. Thanks gals! Crochet - I'm telling you, it was huge!!

  4. Wish I could have been there! It all looks AWESOME!


If you leave them, I read them!!
