It's been a busy few days. And Joe had to see the emergency doctor again last night so we were sitting around in a waiting room for ages. Luckily he's fine - just a cold and sore throat. Calpol is a wonderful thing.
Jay booked today off work to help out with last-minute preparations for the craft and vintage fair tomorrow. My first ever one!
I did a mock-up of the stall in the kitchen. It took a lot longer than expected.
Apparently the tables are 6 feet long. I seem to have more things than space so there was a lot of considered arranging and rearranging.
I've also been busy pricing, printing out contact details and writing labels. And I'm in love with the fabric. Ikea, if you're interested. I think it was £5 per metre which is very reasonable (it's really nice quality).
I'd been hoping to model some of the wristwarmers tomorrow but if today's weather is anything to go by I won't be needing them - the market's being held in a huge polytunnel. Things could get very warm indeed.
Everything's all packed and ready to go. Lots of change (should anyone actually makes a purchase), props, stock, just-in-case things like scissors and sellotape...
And the wooden crates (which Jay painted for me) are nice and dry, ready to display my wares.
Hopefully I'll get some sleep tonight - no lying awake in a panic. I'm determined not to be disheartened if people just walk past tomorrow. You win some, you lose some. If at first you don't succeed etc. etc...
Wish me luck!
