Lately, I haven’t been giving this blog the love and attention it deserves. BUT, it has been for a very good reason; I’ve been working on a number of exciting projects. I baked and decorated a Red Velvet cake for Kyra and Steve’s engagement party, AND I have turned 4006things into a Market Stall! As a lot of you will already know I love a crafty project, and of late, have ended up with some lovely completed bits and pieces taking up precious space in my tiny flat.
So, as a way to finance new crafty projects, and give myself some space for creating, I decided to test the waters with a market stall at the BAC Twilight Markets back in April. Organised by my friend Casey from Pitter Patter, it turned out to be a super fun, and surprisingly successful afternoon, and spurred me on to try it again at Jenna and Casey’s Home Style Markets at Sherwood last weekend. I have to say that, whilst it was a little quiet, I had a wonderful time meeting other stall holders and customers and enjoying wonderful music from the busker upstairs. In fact, I’ll be back there next month – Saturday June 9, and I’m super excited.
So what have I been taking to market?? I have put together a fun range of tea light candles, and some jar candles with essential oils and crystals, as well as knitted hats (beanies) and nanna style crocheted tea towels, a few vintage items, fresh herbs, lavender sachets and even coffee cosies. I’m most excited about one of my aromatherapy products though – Snuffies. They are all natural vapour discs with essentials oils that you can use in the shower or bath to help clear your sinuses this cold and flu season.
Hopefully, I’ll see you at the next market!
