Boutique Market Wrap Up

Well, I survived the Boutique Markets in Hobart, no migraine, or stress.
Mic and I spent our first night away from our little boys and also our first night away since they were born (one is 7 and the other, 5), which was long overdue.
So, all in all it was lovely.
The market was another success for Marley & Lockyer and I did love putting up a Christmas tree
and pretending for a few hours (cause you know I adore Christmas!!).
I used wooden pegs, gorgeous handmade crochet stars from the wonderful Tina and M&L's clay tags on the tree, and it looked great.
Thank you again Tina for your help with the stars xx

I took LOADS of my Clay Tags with me, and sold most of them, which was wonderful.
There were lots of new designs which have yet to make it to The Shop,
but stay tuned - after the next market "Niche- All Wrapped Up"
there will be lots in Store.

 Here I am, playing with the tree and setting up before the Market opened.
Look at the beautiful venue it was held at!!
See what I have to deal with ;0)
 I got a chance to meet up with Sarah, from Molly's Maison and the delightful Jane from Life On Planet Baby, who came and met me at the last Boutique Market as well as some other lovely Pinterest, Facebook and Etsy followers.
It's so nice to see and chat to people who you 'know' from the Internet world.

I loved setting up for this stall. I HAD lots of stock and it was nice to have not been sewing to the wee hours of the morning in the lead up this time...much more prepared =0)
Lots of new rings and earrings which were also a hit,
as well as some of my best sellers.
It nice when people come back, who were at the last Boutique Market and bought, only to return to buy more. That makes it all worthwhile.

Lots of covers came as well.
Once the next market is over, I will be able to update my Etsy Shop with a lot of new designs which I brought along to the market.
But for the next 10 days I will be making more tags, more jewelry and just more stock.
....can't believe I have 10 more days to do it all
...wish me luck!!!

Thank you to all who came and purchased/chatted with me today.
As always, I really appreciate it and had a ball.
