Our stall at the craft fair!

Well - it was a cold, snow covered morning when Wipso and I set out for Montgomery.
The treasure that is Mr Wipso drove us over there and helped us unpack all our bags and boxes.
With Tina's help we set out a fantastic stall, loaded with goodies.
I guess the poor weather kept a good few customers at home, nevertheless, we had a brilliant day.
We sold quite a lot, met old friends and made a few new ones.
Later in the day, the sun shone and the view from the upper floor of the Town Hall, towards Welshpool, was wonderful on this cold winter's day.
Montgomery town must have been quite full because Tina's shop Indigo Moon had a busy afternoon too.
The craft fair was held in aid of the NSPCC so I hope they did well. We bought raffle tickets and had a go at guessing the name of the knitted mouse but of course we didn't win.
By 3.30 folks were starting to pack away so we did likewise and then waited for our knight in shining armour to re-pack the car and take us home.
A great day - thanks to Tina for suggesting we help fill her tables - apologies if we overwhelmed her with our all our goodies!!
Our Christmas goodies will be going into the blog shop on Monday, so, if you are in need of a few stocking fillers or tree decorations or Christmas rag wreaths, then pop over to Sisters Crafty Creations and check us out.

Well done all of you. The stall looks really good.

I'd have come along but we had a craft fair in Marton - can't say we were overwhelmed with visitors but there was a steady trickle of people through the door. I'm sure the weather was a deterrent.

Such a lovely display! I am in love with that striped one sitting on top, is it a zebra? We have no such fairs here around, sadly.

Your stall looks great - I had a good close-up look at the photo and love the Zebra, but you have such a good selection of things between you and they all sit so well together. Thank so much for your support and comment on my last post - it's all a bit overwhelming at the moment and I have to accept I can only do so much, and I don't think it'll be enough, but we can at least make a start. I've worked out I must have a proper break from sorting out clutter for one day a week otherwise I'll go mad, so I'm going to try hard to follow my own plan! xx
