ALL PACKED AND READY TO GO...

ABOVE:  my car... all packed up and ready to go.... it's so much easier going to market with cards and bags compared to pottery!  No heavy boxes or masses of wrapping paper, no breakables!  It's awesome.

RIGHT... everyone wish me luck... and keep ya fingers crossed I sell SOMETHING today!  I will be gutted if it's a flop. 

Stew and the kids will be coming out to see/relieve me for a while around midday... one must have a piddle break eh? lol

And if you are around... POKENO is not far from Auckland or Hamilton... *hint* *hint* to no one in particular...

WELL.... all that work... and getting up early, and sitting in the blistering sun.... for sweet bugger all!   It was incredibly quiet at the market... I  was assured everyone was having a dismal day, so didn't feel too bad.   But still... it was disheartening to say the least.   I'm not sure if I will put myself through that again. 

 ABOVE:  the lovely Kate from Auckland came a visited me, which was really nice of her.
ABOVE:  the girl next to me was selling wooden things.. Brylee and Griffin made themselves 'useful' and kept her company... and even sold some of her stuff while she was off getting her lunch!  She gave them a 'commission' each so they could go and buy a wee something.  How sweet of her!

End of Day:  I've had an incredibly quiet, lazy afternoon and evening.   nite nite.

  9. I'm so sorry you struck a slack day. Maybe December is too late for these markets as everyone is crazy shopping in the big city stores.

    Have a good rest then put them up for sale on the internet. Or bring them over to Whitianga, or even Thames, in January when everyone is going crazy at the markets.

    [[[[[[hugs]]]]]]

    have a good night and sleep.
