Weekend Market

Here are some photos from the market I did in the weekend over at Ranfurly.












I was happy with how my stall looked and with the level of stock I had, but unfortunately the sales weren't that great. Apparently there was another market at the closest town, Cromwell, that day that may have reduced the amount of people who came. Oh well, you win some, you lose some....

We did however have a fantastic day in St Bathans on sunday - hot and sunny - yay!

I'm a bit late this week due to being away for the weekend (more about that tomorrow). Didn't find much this week so hopefully I'll do better this week!

This Weeks Finds....

It's been a big few weeks getting ready for the market this coming Saturday but I did manage to get to a few op shops and this is what I found...









I LOVE this coathanger - chrome and bakelite ....yummmm





Ages ago I bought this string holder at the op shop....



and this week I found the pattern in a book! Now if only I could find a plastic face I could make some more!




I've linked up with Her Library Adventures for thrifting treasure sharing.

My Place And Yours: On The Wall

I'm joining in today with Punky & Me for a My Place and Yours meme - this week it's "On The Wall".I quickly took some photos as the sun was fading but was amazed at the quality from my new camera - yay!





















You may be noticing a bit of a theme in my wall decorations! Although not a practising Catholic now, I was brought up as one and the images won't leave me. I suppose it's a nostaligic thing for me but some people think it's a bit strange which I can understand but to me they're just beautiful.

This Weeks Finds...

Well, the weather's getting cooler here, but I hope it's just a temporary glitch and summer's not over! It feels like summer's only been here for a couple of weeks - yikes!








I bought a new camera today as mine died during the week. Haven't quite worked out how to use it yet but hopefully I'll get a chance to in the coming week.

New Stockist...

I have another new stockist in the South Island - Somebodys Darling Gallery in Arrowtown. They're stocking the Mary candles and have already put in a second order after only a couple of weeks! Better get back to the kitchen.....

This Weeks Finds...

I don't have a lot to show this week. A combination of being busy making stock for an upcoming market and the feeling that I'm hoarding too much stuff! I went under the house earlier in the week and was looking through some of the boxes of vintage goodies that I don't have room in my house for, but can't seem to part with and it's making me feel stressed. Don't worry, this feeling never lasts and I'll be back hoarding next week!
