Reculez à la terre - { Back down to Earth }

The eagle has landed my friends and this little black duck can finally take off her helmet and breath some oxygen again. What a brilliant weekend I had at Mathilda's market. Firstly a huge merçi to the wonderful team that put together this magnificent event. Everything was so brilliantly organised!


My Mum and I were some of the very first people through the door to set up....eager...moi? And I was all set up and ready about an hour before it all started. Just enough time to thoroughly chew off my thumb nails (and I'm not a nail biter!!), have a coffee, go to the loo...and then to the loo....and then to the loo etc. etc.



Experienced stall holders said that crowds were alot less than usual but I made quite a few sales and went home over the moon with all the wonderful comments and positive feedback I received. I even had a few wholesale enquiries!! Thanks SOOO much to all those lovelies who purchased some of my goodies and to those lovely bloggy friends who came and said hi! All in all it was a magic introduction to the world of marketeering. I shall be back! Today....Racecourse Road, Hamilton, Brisbane....tomorrow....Les Champs Élysées, Paris!!!

P.S. Sorry for the piccies....gorgeous Autumn sunlight pouring in behind us did not a good picture make!

Your stall looked scrumptious Steph! I'm not surprised you sold lots and had wholesale offers! It all looks divine. I'm heading your way for a holiday in just under 2 weeks. I'll be in Wellington Point (but able to travel) for 10 days arriving Monday 5th July. Any chance we can catch up?
