We did it

We wanted £1,000, we got £1,174, we are happy.  It was a good day on Saturday.  Maybe not as many people as we had hoped for.  But those that came spent their money on the stalls that counted.

I must give a mention to Linda and Kevin who came all the way from Lowestoft just to say hello, and to give us a donation.  I "met" Linda on the Granny's World facebook page, and we have chatted online and when I posted about the bazaar she said they would come.  I didn't really expect them too as its about a 200 mile round trip.  But come they did, it was great to meet face to face, and I hope that we can meet up again when we visit Southwold as its not that far away.  Thanks again for coming xx

Here a a few photos of the day.  The cake stall alone raised £118 which was brilliant, we like cake

It was an exhausting day by the time we had cleared up, I did at least sleep well with the aid of a couple of beers and a sleeping tablet!  After 2 nights of laying awake thinking I needed to sleep.

Sunday felt really flat, for the past 3 months we have been planning and advertising and making, now its done its like - what now?

I do have a few orders to knit up.  But oh so many things to get shot of ............ not sure the craft fair circuit is for me, all those people that just walk by without even taking a glance.  The standing around trying not to look bored.  Maybe I'll open an Etsy shop, along with all the thousands that are already on there ....... or maybe I'll just give everything away
