Sunday Upmarket First Day

Hello, I've been feeling guilty all week for not posting these photos but after all the hard work it took to get ready for the market I've been exhausted, and I had major wisdom tooth pain!

So here I am setting up, I dragged my boyfriend along to help with the first one as I didn't know how long it would take and how being only 5"1 I was going to get that fabric over the shell!  He's 6"3 so no problem for him.

Can you see where my inspiration tallies up with the last post?

You may also notice my charity shop finds being used.

I kind of underestimated the size of the table, it was huge, so my dainty jewellery did well to attract peoples attention.  

If i'm honest the day didn't go quite as well as hoped, it could have been due to many reasons (I blame the weather myself, it was horrible that day) but I took lots of positive ideas to try out the next time.  I'm not going to take it personally because I didn't see anyone particularly doing that well.  I guess that's just how it goes, some days are good, some are bad.

What do you think of the set-up?  Please be as critical as you like, it all helps.  I'm thinking it needs bigger display boards at the back to get rid of all that empty space.  I also need extra lighting, can you think of anything else?

Sunday Upmarket Stall Display

To date I've only taken part in one small craft show which I loved doing so thought I'd aim a bit higher and see what happens, soooo as of this Sunday I will have a stall at the Sunday Upmarket off Brick Lane.  I'm very excited to see my customers in the flesh and gauge all your reactions. 

It's a much bigger stall with an ugly metal frame so I want to make it look beautiful and feminine to represent my jewellery.  I have a few ideas up my sleeve which I won't tell you about just yet, I want it to be a surprise.  Many of them came from the inspiring images above which I have been collecting.  Maybe you can imagine what it will look like.

If you can make it, come by and say hello, i'd love to hear your thoughts.

Soft and Pretty

 I'm going to get an early night as I have a massive headache but wanted to share these pretty images with you first.  They are so soft and beautiful and calming  which is good after a busy day.  I hope you enjoy them.

weekend purchases

Hello, welcome back to the working week, I hope you all enjoyed your weekends.  I had a lovely time with my uni girls up in Birmingham, not quite sure if I've recovered from lack of sleep yet but hey ho. Unfortunately I didn't manage to get a photo of of us all (too much chatter made the days fly by and I forgot) so I thought I'd share my purchases with you instead.

We went charity shop shopping on Saturday and I found this gorgeous platter to display my jewellery on.

I also found this book which is so beautiful.  It's all worn and faded with yellowed pages, I love the New Forest too so had to get it.

This dress was from Urban Outfitters, it was in the sale and was one of those instant 'i'm going to buy this' purchases which doesn't happen an awful lot with me.

So that's it, thanks girls for a fun filled weekend and to Becky for being such a great host.  You looked after us well!

Oh PS spot the bird, remember  Claire Coles who I mentioned in this post.  Well she and I swapped treasures, the above bird brooch for my Aztec Ring.  I love mine and attached it to my bag straight away.  I hope you like yours too Claire.
