Here’s my boat shop all lit up for the Christmas market in Bradford in Avon on 2nd and 3rd of December. We had a good weekend, thank you to everyone that came. There were lots of lovely goodies being sold from 12 boats and stalls. Of the pieces I sold, one was a delicate rose quartz teardrop and garnet necklace with a matching bracelet. Hopefully to a very happy recipient!
That was my last trading for the winter. Easter is at the end of March when I will open again. I’ll keep you posted where I’m going to be, probably somewhere near Reading.
Meanwhile I will be updating my website with some new pieces. Don’t forget you can also keep up with our boating life and new pieces on Facebook.
1st and 2nd April Saturday and Sunday we will be trading on the moorings at ‘Here East’, Hackney Wick. On the Lee towards the Olympic Park. 10ish to 5ish. There are lots of goodies on display to choose from, I look forward to seeing you.
We took a little cycle ride today to check for moorings to move to and found a trade mooring spare. Unfortunately we also had to sample the lovely home brewed beers at The Crate Brewery. A little treat for you too after visiting us.
We are at the London end of The Lee Navigation once again.
Change of place…..We can next be found trading for Mothers Day weekend 25th and 26th March at Walthamstow Marshes as we’ve found a good mooring space.
Our plan after this, is to enter The Thames from Limehouse Basin to explore the delights The Thames has to offer towards Oxford for 4 weeks. I can’t trade on The Thames so don’t miss my last trading point.
Here’s just one of the new pieces of stock made during the winter. A mookaite leaf necklace.
We’ve been on a winter mooring since November reducing the need to move in bad weather. The time has been spent making new stock, walking or cycling this lovely area, The Lee Valley and visiting family and friends.
We’ll be off again on our travels at the end of February, braving the river Thames and then the Kennet and Avon.
