Life after The Christmas Market

IMG_20171205_230056

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.

Only 2 weeks left before the Christmas Market.

Well with only 2 weeks to go, I think I’ve made enough new pieces to give you all lots of choice. I’ve been using most of my spare time in the last 2 months, designing and making.

We were moored on the outskirts of Bath for the last 2 weeks, which was lovely. Siteseeing and trying to avoid the temptation of all the fabulous shops!

Hope to see lots of you the weekend of 2nd and 3rd December in Bradford on Avon. We will be decorating the boat and lighting it up at night.

The Herb Boat

What a wonderful bank holiday weekend trading in Newbury! Lots of people and sunshine made a busy three days. I met other traders, made new friends and had fun chatting to all my lovely customers.

I sold a lot of pieces, so I’ll need to work hard now for Christmas and moor up somewhere quiet. Continue reading Newbury Floating Market

The Kennet and Avon….

1000877

Beautiful skies and countryside. We’re making our way down the Kennet and Avon.

Last weekend I was open in Kintbury in the very high temperatures. It’s always a pleasure to talk to so many different people.

Now I have a couple of busy weekends in my home town so I won’t be open. You can always contact me by email or buy from my site.

Our next weekend trading will be the 8th and 9th of July. Probably in Great Bedwyn instead of Hungerford as mooring times were too restricted there.

The Sun is Out.

We’ve started the spring with the most lovely sunny days and in many areas very warm too.

If you fancy a treat there are some necklaces on Sale from my site. This is one example below

Kyanite, Apatite and Freshwater Pearl Lariat Loop Necklace
A 24″ necklace with a 2″ loop end instead of a clasp, making the length adjustable, using blue and bright green gemstones.

I shall be open this Easter weekend if the weather behaves itself. So join the walkers and cyclists along the towpath by Hackney Marshes and see if you can grab a bargain from my boat shop.

Next Trading Place..

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.

Nearly Ready For The Off.

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.
