Much to my relief the people did come, lots of them, despite the frankly schizophrenic weather! And... from the comments we had back, they all had a very lovely time and said how beautiful the stalls were and how fantastic the tearooms were (run by Jumbly Crumbly Kitchen - they even ran out of all the amazing cakes they had made which shows how popular they were)! Phew! :)
To be fair though, we had the most amazing selection of stallholders and I am so grateful to them all for making the day what it was! After all without them we'd just have had an empty room with some bunting down the sides!
I may have spent a little more than I should but the bits I bought from What Katie Did Next, The Green Gables, Tobyboo and Bobbins and Balms are all amazing products that will be treasured!
Oh and I *may* have convinced my husband we NEEDED a gorgeous hamper from Hampers for Campers...
All in all, the trekking for miles handing out thousands of leaflets, the making signs, the website, the hard work and everything we did to try and make the event a success, was worth it. I'd like to say a huge thank you to everyone who made it such a lovely day!
Anyway enough waffle here are some pics of the day, apologies to anyone we missed!!
