Better late than never

I'm rather tardy on giving a report on my first ever boutique market.....however the week after was spent getting myself and the house ready for a milestone birthday of Little Miss J.
On the 16th of May I did my very first boutique market. This was a huge leap of faith for me, I'm a misstress of self dought and that self dought had held me back far to long. So sucked it up and looked fear in the face. The first market was for Poppyseed Markets which also was the launch of Poppyseed Markets also.

Wow all I can say is that the lovely Poppy did a great job in running her first one and really looked after her stall holders.
I did get lost on my way there as there was no such exit as the one I was looking for on the the M5. Anyway lucky for me I lived in the area I had to go to many years ago so knew my way roughly from the airport.

Once there it took a while to get set up as all my time was being put into putting up a set of shelves for the first time. Hmmmm the problem was s imple one but on those poorly written instructions it was not clear that the shelves had to be turned a certain way. I got there in the end and was selling things right from the moment I was putting my last lot of accessories onto the display table.

I also learnt a little more about setting up for indoors....previously I mostly have done outdoor displays so really was used to using a gazebo to hang things on as well. I did love what I did but will be doing much better next time. I am hoping to get to making a nice set of matching table covers. Sometime before my next market. Fingers crossed!

All in all I did alright in sales, I did not expect too much on my first go and for the first time of the market running also. At least I did better than what I would have had I been at the local market apparently loads of stall holders lost money.

I was surrounded by some very wonderful ladies includinga couple of local gals.

Sarah from Gifts Created was there you can check out her blog for more.

Also there was Kylie from Butterfly Garden Accessories she has a Facebook page to take a squiz at.

I also got to meet the gorgeous Andrea from Karimu who had the most devine things for sale, I hope to buy many a thing of her in the future. She is also on Facebook.

I will be back at poppyseed in July on the 11th. Hope to see you there.

10 pretty dresses for 10 pretty girls

Here is a sneeky look at the dresses I made this week for Poppyseed Markets on Sunday.
Some really cute ones in there. As usual life got in the way of me getting to sewing up a whole lot of stock for the weekend.

I still have a number of Out and about pants to sew up. I don't think I will get to the baby sized ones in time for this market but I will have them available on line at the end of next week.

In case you also did not know about the fact I put in a matching hair clip with each of the dresses.They look great in winter over the top of a long sleeved shirt and leggings or Jeans.
Hope yo see some of you lovely blog readers there on Sunday.
Also if anyone spends $40 and over and they say the code word chicken when paying for their items I will pop in something extra in their bag.

If you need invites I suggest

I recently ordered some invites from ellabella prints.
These are for a birthday party that is comming up this household. I have to say I am very happy with the quality and the way the invites turned out and I highly recomend them to yoy for any invites you may need.

each invite comes with a magnet attatched to the back so your invitee can put it up on the fridge as to not forget. She does any kind of invite and will custom make them to your needs including themes and photos.
I also purchased some thankyou cards from her as well. I think a thankyou card is always lovely to give to those who have come along to your special event.
i found her through Facebook. Just go to her page for anymore information you may need or to place an order with her.
She even wraps them in lovely packaging.
