Just a quick post - I know I've been a slacker with the blogging!

Today was the first day of "Niche - All wrapped up" the market in support of St Giles at the University of Tasmania Art School in Launceston. Above are a couple of photos of my stall taken by Jen (with a much lovelier camera and a much better eye for photos than me). Thank you!

I was nervous and hadn't managed to fit in a practice stall set up so just had to do it cold this morning. I was really happy with how it turned out. It needs a little tidy up in the photos but that's a good thing. It means people were looking. I had a great day and may be sold on this market thing. So exciting to chat with customers and other makers.

There are so many amazing stalls at Niche. If you're in or near Launceston do pop in tomorrow. You'll love it! I'm hoping to manage a little shopping tomorrow too!

Yep, that's why I love markets. It's great to get face to face feedback from people. Exhausting though (especially when pregnant I imagine)!

Looks fantastic. Well done!

And good luck for tomorrow too!

Hi Suse,

So lovely to read your post.

I'm feeling a little down as I had really wanted to come and surprise you at Niche and get to shop from you "direct". I ended up going to Canberra for work this week and after arriving home last night at 10:30pm, didn't think it was fair to Jasper to leave him again and hop back on a plane (I'm a bit over airports at the moment too).

I went to another market today instead (Made n Thornbury). It was a small, but beautiful community craft market. I got to meet some bloggers in real life.

Anyway, it's with mixed feelings that I'm just writing to say hello to you tonight.

Your stall looks gorgeous. Can't wait for a full post market wrap up post.

PS - Did you see Cintia's Emma? PPS - Are you able to make your button hair clips onto bobby pins for big people (read, me)??

Sorry for taking up all your comments space.....oooppss!

Stall looks fantastic Susie! I hope you managed to sell a bit.
Niche looked like the place to be on the weekend. Did you end up getting one of Jenny's dolls? You're right, they are amazing...cant wait to receive ours!
