What A Niche Weekend.

Oh My!
Talk about exhausted!

The Niche Market has been and gone - in an all mighty gust of shopping wind (or so it feels!)...
My friend Ebony (who did my other shoot) came along on the Friday, with her camera and took some snaps of my stall.

I have just counted how many button earrings I have left - 42 pairs. Not bad, not bad... considering I had made 263 pairs, and in the first hour of the market on Friday, I sold at truck load - yay!

I ended up doing a massive "quick" shop/trade at the end of the market on Sunday, I got so much - gorgeous tea towels by Red Wren, jams, hair clips and cute fabric purse by Black Eyed Susie, a couple upcycled journals by the lovely Isis, Christmas Doves by Dick & Dora, earrings from Pop Glass as well as Sewn Earth, vintage posies by Emma at Life As A Bird, big gorgeous upcycled soy wax candles by 3 Blind Mice, wine from Iron Pot Bay (consumed a bottle last night!) yummy cakes and biscuits from Hungry Kitty and of course.... an abundance of goodies from Annie at Red Bamboo.

I got a stack of candles from Annie but also a yummy bath bomb... which I was instructed to use in small doses - break bits off, you know? Well, I got home after the market, unpacked (actually, more or less dumped everything into my bedroom/factory) and showed off my goodies to my mother... then I heard the bath calling my name, poured myself a glass of Iron Pot Bay Pinto Grigio and grabbed the bath bomb (before mother could claim it!) and ran a nice hot bath... At first I chipped off bits of the bomb into the bath whilst the water was running, then I thought: "Hmm, what they hey!" - and threw the whole thing in!
My skin felt like silk the whole time in the bath, out of the bath and even this morning! And it's aroma was delicious.
Yum. Thanks Annie!

Thanks to all who came and checked out The Niche Market and for supporting a worthy cause - St Giles Tasmania. See you at the next one hopefully!
