Marmalade Angel

This is Susan’s shop in its new improved premises in Tulbagh, my favourite town away from home. The photos really don’t capture the atmosphere of the place and, although it’s slightly off the beaten track of Church Street, there was a steady flow of customers during the time I was there. And they all had cash on them. (Yip, cash, I tell you – love that stuff!


And if you go to the Marmalade Angel now, you’ll be able to find the unique Jam Tarts lamps for sale. Hoo ha.

And … some of my crocheted bracelets and button bangles:

Obvious enough to say, but it is enormously reassuring when someone else actually likes your stuff enough to give it shop room. Self-doubt can be a real creativity killer!

Right, enough of that — I have two markets this weekend (tomorrow is the Harfield Carnival and Sunday is Kirstenbosch), so I need to have me a power breakfast with extra caffeine, and get cracking.

Have a great weekend, everyone.

To be continued…

    Love the crochet button bracelet.
    I am inspired to make one to wear for Christmas day. I love these posts. I get so may ideas.
    Good luck at the market and may the cash rain gently down upon you.

      Thanks for saying that, that’s so kind. If you make one specially for Christmas, perhaps you could add some red and green buttons? :-)
      And as for cash raining gently down on me – thanks for the thought, but if I had my way it would TORRENT. (We’ve had one or two bleak market days, so I need to make up for those – heh )

    Wonderful shop that can only be enhanced by your lovely creations, Jill. Good luck both markets – take a HUGE money bag with you so it can overflow with the torrents of cash coming your way.
