Phew what a busy few weeks!

Hope you're well readers, as the title of this post suggests it has indeed been a very busy few weeks (again), we've had lots of making, and a market!

I come bearing photos from our wonderful friend Kerry, who kindly came along to our first market with her camera, on April 24th at the Shire Hall in Chelmsford, as organised by the fantastic Truly Madly Vintage.

We got to Shire Hall bright and early, having packed everything up the night before and done a little run through of how we wanted our pitch to look, so after recreating it for real on our real market pitch in a real Hall we went for a nerve calming coffee. Well, a wake up coffee too for me, I was a sleepy Nightingale.

When the market opened at 10am, we didn't have long to wait for our first customer who bought one of our vintage charm necklaces. We were so happy to have sold even one thing, and from then on our nerves went and we just had a great time, meeting so many people who came round to say hello, and making new friends! The day flew past in a flurry of sunshine, smiles and support, then it was all over and far too soon we were packing away.

To all who came out in the glorious sunshine to see the market, thank you so much for coming down, we had a great day meeting you all, and especially big hugs and kisses to those who bought things!

(Apologies for the unrotated ness of the photo of the birds in the tree - it was too nice to leave out! If you click on any of the photos it will link to our facebook album with lots more lovely photos!)

Since then, Sparrow and I have been putting our noggins together to come up with new products for our next market (May 22nd, 10am - 3pm at Shire Hall, Chelmsford, hosted by TMV) so pop back and I might have some sneak peeks exclusively for you!
