June 1st Darlingtons Sunday Peoples Market

Blimey, I can't believe how long it has been since my last blog post. Must have been busy making LOL.
1st June it was our monthly street craft market in Darlington and the Sun shone nearly all day, with
laughter and smiles all around us. 
It was the day I had been waiting for to show off my new pendant designs on my new display stand I had made myself
This simple display is made from MDF
(being an ex carpenter, I am not overly chuffed with using this stuff but it's affordable) 
and painted a easy on the eye colour.
This display started off with only four shelves but at 5pm the evening before the market I decided it need more shelves. So, out with the router, saw and the PVA glue not forgetting the paint. Two hours later the final design was finished and loaded in to the car.

By mid afternoon I needed to stretch my legs so leaving my lovely Sue in charge, I had a little walk around. Catching up with people I knew like: Beryl from Guru,  Louise from U-Neek, The moody baker(garlic mushroom pasties are amazing) to name but a few. I also had a chance to see some new crafters/traders.
This next picture shows Gill and her crafts of Pink Crumble. The ethos of this trader was "Not For Profit". All the money she took from what she made and sold went to charities for the needy and homeless. I was and am so impressed with this. I really hope she done loads at the end of the day. 
And here is another new crafter, Steffi of Poly Pattered. Lovely colourful handmade jewellery. You really must see the colour of this jewellery in real life to appreciate it.

Well, that's about it for this post, I hope to get back on track with posting more frequently.
Thanks for taking the time to read this far.
Steve
