Oh, it was the funniest experience! I was in the church, where tabels had been set up balancing across the pews! A bit difficult, but certainly interesting.

It was a sweet little market with a mixture of villagers and holiday-makers. From talking to other stall holders, it takes a few appearances at the market to really win over the locals and encourage them to buy.

I made back my investment of £5 within minutes but only made total of £12. That bought one very delicious pub lunch! On the plus side the cake-lady kept us supplied with very tasty and cheap cupcakes and tea and coffee was free!

Going back next month and have also been roped into doing the 27th Annual Staintondale & District Show next Sunday afternoon where there is an actual prize for tallest weed! prize money £1. I love Yorkshire village life!

That's a quaint setup isn't it - I like the pic with the window behind your stall.

Pity you didn't make more - but this weekend, Friday in particular, can be slow for fairs as many people are getting ready for going on holiday or already travelling.

Better luck next month and at the show (rosebay willowherb or hemlock possible contenders for "Tallest Weed").

I think it looks about as good as I could get under those conditions! I really need to find some good shelving and bits and bobs to use on my table. I don't have much and always think it looks rather bare. Problem is i'm not very crafty and haven't come across anything ready made that would work.

Any ideas of things I could use?  Huh?

Looks great. Well done.  :buttrf: It feels so good to sell stuff that you've made. i made some stands with plywood that look like steps. You can do the same thing with cardboard and then cover it with some nice paper/fabric.

Em, dont know how I missed these pics, the set up looks good, but it's a shame takings were a bit slow - a pub lunch sounds like a great way to spend your earnings though  Grin

Your table loooks good Em & so do your products. 

It takes a while to get your set up just the way you want it & very often table sizes will vary so you have to try other ways to get what you want out on display & looking good. You'll get there soon enough.

Thanks everyone,

I think I'll just have to gradually hoard bits and pieces to try out. I'm always a little in awe when I see pictures of many of your stalls, they look so fantastic and would draw me over immediately if I was passing!

That looks lovely - and y'shire village life certainly sounds like fun. Since I started soaping there are no more weeds in my Garden, they are all called exotic flowers now  :mwaha:

Does Bindweed that is growing up the drainpipe count?  :buttrf:
