"The time has come," the Walrus said,
"To talk of many things:
Of bags--and softies--and fabric flowers--
Of necklaces--and bling--
And why the rain is pelting down--
And whether sock monkeys have wings."
The very first Made With Love Bazaar/Markets took place yesterday and it was a complete success! The day had dismal weather with rain threatening the whole time, but we still managed to have a stream of people constantly wandering through. All throughout the building were the sounds of laughter and people just generally having a fan-snazzy time (it didn't hurt that there were mini-cupcakes being handed out). I also managed to get a fair chunk of Christmas shopping done by perusing the other girl's stalls and doing a swap with them. A little bit of turning trixie in exchange for something awesome for my friends. Hurrah!
I didn't manage to do a blog post about the markets before they actually came - the week was spent with me being a slightly frantic mess wielding a sewing needle. My fingers paid the price... However, we have ANOTHER Made With Love Bazaar coming up in 2 weeks, and it promises to be even bigger and better. If you're around the area, drop in and have a look - there's so many awesome items there that even if you intend to only do Christmas shopping, you'll still manage to find a few pretties for yourself. If you're NOT around the area, all I can say is that it sucks to be you.
Now I'm going to inundate you with some photos of our collective awesomeness.
The FIRST turning trixie stall.
Some of Michelle's cool gear.
Claire's ever so cute stall.
Other incredible feats of craftiness.
And last but certainly not least, our highly esteemed second-hand/vintage clothing room - complete with a questionable hanging system, and some very trendy threads.
