Yesterday I took myself off to the Te Kairanga Spring Market in Martinborough (there’s another one next Sunday from 10am-3pm too).
I’d never been to Te Kairanga and it’s a lovely winery with an old house where the market was and lots of picnic tables for sitting around on. My stall was in a marquee at the edge of the market and a bit shaded and cold but with very nice green grass. The market was billed as a local makers market so I knew that I wasn’t in for sales to rival Craft 2.0 … and I was right!
People came to eat and drink although a few threw in notebooks and pencils for good measure. I ended up cutting out early – it started pouring with rain, I was cold and I wasn’t going to make my fortune in the next hour so home was the better option.
I’ll be back at the market this coming Sunday from 10am – 3pm so come along. This time I’m bringing stuffed toys, some bags, lavender bags and a handful of notebooks and pencils for good measure.
Hope to see you there.
P.S. Strangest question of the day – one old lady asked me if I made the paper inside my notebooks. Ugh – no (it’s photocopier paper).
