What a beautiful day it was yesterday! I had my stall in Bromley Market and it was glorious, sunny and warm!
The shoppers were out and the mood was noticibly lifted by the sunshine and, unusually for Bromley High Street, the winds were light - just enough to ease the heat and give a pleasant feel to the day.
This morning is very different - we have rain (albeit with a fresh and pleasant 'just rained' smell in the air and a warm temperature) which is ideal for all the thousands running in today's London Marathon but I would be less than impressed if yesterday had been the same...
It was wonderful to see quite a few of my customers who I haven't seen for a while and lots of new ones. One of the great joys of craft fairs and markets is being able to have lots of interaction with my customers, old and new, and yesterday was no exception. I had a great stall position and set up at the beginning of the High Street (hopefully it will become my regular spot!!) - the only down side being that it is opposite the fish van. Now I am sure you think this is a down side because of smell or something similar but you're wrong! My problem is that I LOVE fish and spent all day craving a big bag of unpeeled prawns!! I decided that it wouldn't be advisable for me or my stall to be stinking of fish all day so resisted!
Next weekend is a Bank Holiday and on Sunday and Monday I will be at the Spring Garden & Leisure show run by The South of England Agricultural Society at The South of England Showground, Ardingly (our stall is inside the Norfolk Pavilion where you will find lots of wonderful craft stalls as well as the English Garden Roadshow).
