Sibbald Sunday Market - Sunday 1st May 2011

Pauline and I decided to try the new Sunday Market at Blackridge, its indoors and outdoors which is good and you have to phone ahead to book a place so that means you dont have to queue up at 6am in the morning for a pitch.

On arrival we were ushered into a huge warehouse style building with individual pens and each had a tressle table we laughed as we thought it made us look like a prize sheep at a highland show lol.

It was very well organised the market manager came round a couple of times for a chat and find out how we were doing but the only thing I have to say against is that there was not many acutal traders mainly all carbooters which is the impression you would have got from the actual advert for it.

It was a slow morning but picked up at lunchtime and as I was packing up got a last minute surge of customers which is what happens to me at a lot of events.

We will probably give this another chance but not sure when as we want to try out other avenues


Reindeer Playgroup Summer Fair - Saturday 30th April 2011

Back to Holy Cross Church Davidson Mains this time for the hall's playgroup Summer Fair. It was a combined Carboot/Indoor Table top sale so I booked 2 tables since they were cheap.

I wasnt impressed with the tables I got and I was the only stall stuck in the middle of the room so customers had to walk around me that's the ones that realised I was there after walking round the other stalls, some came round the back of me and leaned over, I done surprisingly alright in the end maybe its because of my reduced price watches and the fact I took a couple of boxes of Aliens along for the boys who visited my stall.

Oh well not to worry its behind me now onto the next event

Lauderdale Carboot Sale - Sunday 24th April 2011

We took a trip to Lauderdale today, one of our favourite hotels for a meal stop whenever we do border events. It was the Lauderdale Rotary Club organising it with all proceeds going to The Lavender Touch.

The event was originally advertised as indoor or outdoor which we booked indoor but because of the lovely weather today they put us all outdoors - glad we took our tables although there were plenty indoors if we wanted to use them.

The only thing I didnt plan for was being outdoors and sunshine i wore the wrong type top it was low cut and I didnt have a cap or sunglasses and boy am I suffering now lol.

The day was very quiet but it was nice sitting in the sunshine and we did manage to get a couple of contacts for good events later this year so it wasnt all a waste of time.

After the event we stayed at the hotel and had Fish & Chips that is a speciality of the Lauderdale Hotel and they didnt let us down today they were as scrummy as ever.

Leven High Street Easter Fair - Saturday 23 April 2011

After both Pauline & Claire said they couldnt make it, I was a bit gutted as I had already paid £20 for this so invited Brian who jumped at the chance and also drove me over

The weather wasnt as nice as last year it rained lightly on and off most of the day until just not long after lunch when the heavens opened and we decided around 3pm to call it a day

Although the weather wasnt as nice as last year people were still about and buying so it wasnt all that bad but could have been better

Have been invited back to their Summer event but not sure what Pauline will be doing and don't really want to keep annoying Brian for a lift all the time as he is coming out of his way to pick me up but we shall see what happenes

Feeling A Wee Bit Sad

Feeling a wee bit sad as due to personal reasons I had to give up my little space at the Hairdressing Salon, I will miss the day to day banter but on the plus side it will give me time to promote my website and Facebook page
