This morning we traded at the craft market in Philadelphia, a teeny farming village (actually more of a hamlet) about 30 minutes from Cape Town. What we didn’t know was that the market was timed to coincide with the Pedal Power Association’s annual MTB Fun Run. Suffice it to say there were a lot of sweaty cyclists around, which is all good and well, but they were there to do bike stuff, not market stuff. Consequently, it was not a busy day. I thought I’d chuck in a few random photos, so you can see that we at least had perfect weather, good food, and good company.
My sales weren’t too bad overall, and I was especially pleased that six of my pixie hats sold (three crocheted and three fabric ones) because I haven’t had a reply from the Langebaan shop woman and thought perhaps she thought the hats were revolting! Clearly they aren’t, and I now have Big Pixie Hat Plans.
And now it’s time for a rest – feet up, creamed coffee, crochet in hand, telly on, Rob in the kitchen cooking supper. Night all
I had no doubt the sewn pixie hats would be a hit!
Thank you ! (Confidence sometimes goes awol)
If she’d thought they were revolting she would clearly have had no taste. Do tell about the Big Plans?
Big plans are still vague but have a lot to do with the screenprinting course I’m doing this week, with Yda Walt. Very excited :-)
Oh wow, jealous! Yet another thing I’ve always wanted to try but somehow never got round to…
Hi Jill! Sorry for the disappointing market yesterday. I know the next one will be better. I am looking forward to hearing about your pixie plans. :) Have a great day. Love and Hugs, Tamara
You too, xxx
Pixie hats are fabulous! :-D
What is Classy Offspring’s opinion? (I mean, I value your opinion as well, but CO is probably the average age of my market!!!)
CO likes them particularly the material ones. He loves hats. The young ones here wear a lot of hats that are very “fun looking”.
