Craft market unpacked


Well Alt.Shift.Craft market that Traci and I went to on Friday night is behind us now. 
The creating, planning, preparations and practices are all a thing of the past, lol.
I must admit I was a little stressed before hand, although with having Traci and Mr M&M with me to help set up was great.

The market was held in the museum here in Palmerston North, a lovely spacious venue, and the Feilding Ukulele group came and provided music for the stall holders and shoppers. 
There was plenty of room for more shoppers too!


And here was our stall. Traci had been busy making cushions and loads of buntings, all from recycled or re-purposed materials. They were totally gorgeous, but then I am her mum! lol

I think on reflection that perhaps our stall was a little cluttered and next time I plan to make it a little more simplified.


We had lots of lovely comments on how lovely our table looked, but I think I can improve on it.
I like a challenge!

Here we are towards the end of the night. Tired from our experience, but happy at selling our crafts to those who stopped by our stall.

Now it's back to normal for a while :)

Sounds as though you had a great time and most of all, you got to spend time with Traci and enjoy what you both love. I think setting up and preparing the "look" to your table, is just as fun sometimes as creating treasures for others. :)

what a lot of fun to spend craft fair time with your dear and talented girl...cute pic!

You two probably make enough lovely things to fill two booths/tables!

It is a lot of work all in all, but the feedback you get is always so worth it...don't you think!
