This weekend has been really wonderful. I drove on Saturday morning to visit my sister Emma and a friend Gems, in the lovely village of Mobberley in Cheshire. After a refreshing cup of tea we decided to head over to Alderley Edge for a walk in the sunshine. http://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/alderley-edge.
It was so peaceful just sat in the sunshine and there were quite a few like minded people scattered around, I could have sat there for hours. After, we went for a another cup of tea at the Wizard tea Rooms where I had a very tasty apple and plum pie.
Yesterday (Sunday) I went over to Stockport Handmade and Producers Market which was being held in the Old Indoor Market Hall on the 3rd Sunday of every month.
Although I didn’t do brilliantly, I still had a great day and I met some lovely people. My stall was next to Jeanette Archers beautiful collection of handmade baby and children’s clothing, Flossie’s Garden, made with both designer and her own printed fabrics.

Opposite was Sara Robinson of The Purple Robin who makes really great colourful and fun camera straps and bags http://www.etsy.com/shop/ThePurpleRobin
Also Wick and Wax who makes great crayons based on the nations favourite toys (the Lego shapes were my favorite) and cult classic movies as well as lovely candles of which I got 3 different fragrances. http://folksy.com/shops/SubLimeCrayons
Even if you don’t always get the profit you are aiming for it is the people you meet that can make the difference. And now it is back to reality and the working week!
