I had a really great day at the party - the sun was shining, everyone was in a great mood and I did pretty well sales wise too so good all round! The only negatives were
1. That I forgot my bags for wrapping up sold goods - disaster! As it was a public holiday none of the shopfitters were open for me to go and buy some, but luckily I know someone with a shop not too far away from where the party so was able to beg some bags from there! Phew!
(Massive thanks to Kathy from Awesome Rockin' shop - Rockers England).
2. The street was like a wind tunnel! This was rectified by sticking down everything I could with gaffa tape and making a windbreak out of one of my tablecloths!
Apart from that - all was good...here are some photos from the day;
Me stood behind the stall. The pink spotty screen is my windbreak!
I've got my new specs on and am having a coffee from my 10p thermos!
My stall with my little helper (aka my Niece, Kat). Kat did a great job helping me out and it was so busy during the day I don't know what I'd have done without her!

A lot of people made an effort with dressing in the period style
A Tiki bar!
I met fellow blogger, Kally who also had a stall at the event. It was thanks to Kally's blog that I ended up having a stall here - so thanks Kally it was really nice to meet you and see your lovely hats :)
Very important - Cake stall! yum....
And macaroons.....also yum.....
And also some street art going on from local artists!Kat swapped over with Michael at about 5.30pm and he enjoyed the atmostphere with a few beers! I didn't have any drinks as I was driving, and I also don't really like to drink when I am working.
I packed up at 7.30, and we walked to Pizza Express where we relaxed with a nice meal and drinks.
A great ending to a fun day :))
