One of the fairs I was selling at yesterday was at Whitstable Castle. The last time we had been to the castle grounds was some time ago and the castle itself wasn’t open. I remember pao and I having to buy suncream and busily slathering it on in the castle gardens. It was only when we got home again that we realised it was self-tanning sun cream and we had crazily golden palms and streaky skin.
The gardens are really rather gorgeous. I had to scuttle back in as the market was about to open but I did enjoy a snatched moment of peace and coffee. I am not at my best first thing in the morning after a lot of sleep so peace and coffee were just what I needed to perk myself up! Other stallholders who I’d known from before were a bit surprised at how unawake I was when I arrived.
This is my half-awake effort at a stall. I think I’ll need to work on presentation a bit – any suggestions? I like the stands – they are a repurposing of the cupcake stand I used for the wedding cake last year and I had the display case made but I need to do something to really bring attention to my stand and draw people over. I am thinking about bunting but need to figure out how to hang it in an easy to erect way.
