Christmas Designers Marketplace 2012!

Last Saturday was the Annual Christmas Designers Marketplace in Middlesbrough. It was my very first craft stall so I was very nervous and excited! I wasn't sure what to expect. The day seemed to fly by. Middlesbrough Town Hall was a beautiful venue, it was full of festive joy with Christmas music and films on the big screen. Here are a few pictures from the day and my stall. 

I bought some props from an old fruit and veg shop. I wanted to create a 'farmers market' stall appearance as I felt it would fit in with my imagery and products. I think this has worked quite successful. 

I took these snaps from my stall, although they don't do the place justice! The day had a fab range of 60 stalls with a fab range of gifts. I had to stop myself looking as I wanted to buy everything! 

It was also great to see some friendly faces. Here's my friend Bev from Uniko Studio having her debut also at the Designers Marketplace. Her stamps are fantastic and she had a great try before you buy on them so I was eager to have a go.

It was a great day with more sales than I expected. Thank you to everyone who came along and visited. I hope to see you all there next year!
