Two Years Ago.........

Two years ago we were busy finishing off items to sell at The Christmas Earth Fair, in Adelaide.
The South Australian girls who were part of The Chocolate Crow Trader combined their wares and money to have a stall there. In 1 1/2 weeks time, the Fair will be held again but we don't have a stall there this time (nor did we last year).
I thought you might like to have a look at our stall. We had a double site and husband erected all the tables, we used the framework from our 2 canopies that we have, so that some lattice (which husband cut to size and is now sitting in our garage not doing anything!!) could be attached so that we could hang things easily. We had lots of fairy lights plus the star lights on top so we could be seen from anywhere!!

This is the front of the stall

Looking from one end of the stall - how did we all make that much 'stuff'???

Looking from the other end

And this is what we brought home at the end of the Fair.

We miss doing the Fairs, but not all the preparation before! Makes you feel tired just looking at it! But we had a great time with all the girls, and we enjoyed meeting other friends - especially the girls from The Keeping Room and Grizzly...........someone just needs to break into song now............ "Memories".........

I miss going to the fairs with you girls, at least you were guaranteed excellent quality items. Apparently it isn't the earth fair anymore someone else has taken over and it has a cheaper entry price. don't know if I will bother though.
