Sugar and Spice Market Wrap Up

Last weekend hubby, baby Nate and I packed up the car and headed to Woodend for the Sugar and Spice Boutique Children's Market. A 6 hour car journey each way, meant 12 hours in the car keeping baby Nate amused. Thankfully he slept most of the journey with just one stop each way for a feed.

We were very lucky to be offerred a bed for the night before the market with the Moederkip family who had recently moved to Woodend to a lovely house in the woods. Thanks Nat, Paul and Bradley for welcoming us into your home for the weekend!

On the morning of the market we only had a short 5 minute drive to the lovely old hall in town where the market is held. Setting up we met our lovely neighbour for the day Helen of the little card boutique - gorgeous cards, why didn't I buy more! Always good to have a stash of cards at home for those unexpected occassions! I didn't get much of a chance to do very much shopping, but did grab some gorgeous new bibs for Nate from Sam of Gromarts, and some wooden puzzles for the kids from Fairground Child.

We were also lucky to be on an end so could spread ourselves out a little more than our allocated space which is always a good thing when you have clothing racks for people to get too.

We had great sales for the market, quite beyond expectations, and also a couple of wholesale and custom order enquiries which is always a good thing! All in all, a fabulous weeked away!

A big thankyou to Ali the market organiser for hosting the market and we look forward to doing another one soon!
