I had an incredibly successful market day down at Mordialloc yesterday.
Successful in more than one way because my son and his squeeze Bella came to help me for the day.
It was a nice experience to have together as he is a self professed market hater.
That was until he discovered that his favourite skateboard brand had a stall just across from ours.
I met so many customers and always go home with great memories of conversations had over the course of the day, but this lovely lady and her little one were my favourite customers ever!
She bought a cardigan and a wrap dress, tried them on for size even allowing me to take some photos for the blog, and then went on their way about the festival.
But later in the day she came back bringing her friend to meet me too, filling me in on how many comments she had gotten on the dress. Its heartening to see how nice people are.
Who knew my wraps could look so good over fairy skirts?
You made my day that bit better....thankyou!.
Speaking of 'making my day' ....well, I had the honour of being situated next door to this very cute earthy woman all day. The astonishing conversation did not stop, in fact I barely had the inkling to serve my customers as I couldnt wait to hear what would come up next. Brenda, you are one of the most shockingly hilarious people I have ever and will ever meet in my life.
I wanted to take you home but decided to settle for the fact that im seeing you next week at Mulgrave Makers Market anyway. Ill be counting the sleeps.
Oh yeah, Brenda sells some great individually designed t-shirts and
im wearing her 'bird in a tree' one today.
I managed to get a number of eskimo jackets done in time. Up to the putting-on-buttons stage, that is.
The boys ones were a sellout and I even quickly had to finish the last one off while a lady waited.
I told myself I like to have something to do during the quiet times,
so id left myself three jackets to hand finish,
but there werent really enough opportunities. I wont be doing that again!
I dont even have photos this time.
I do have a couple of girls ones left for a shop update this week.
I was really happy with all of the jackets this time.
I enjoyed the moment when I turned them out the right way for the first time and I got to see the patchwork of fabrics all together.
More on that another day...
