Ugly people get married to (sic)

The shitful weather held off until 2pm .. smack bang on our market end time. It was another great day for the BrisStyle market goers and stall holders. The market organisers are so fantastic, I really think that BrisStyle has the best markets in the South East corner. It was lovely to meet people I only know from the blogsphere and Etsy stores. One was the witty, funny loveliness of Art Decadence. Her blog is a great read, definitely worth a read. She also makes hell cool stuff and flogs it on Etsy.


There were some new lassies I met at the market ... BrisStyle is busting at the seams with talent. I had a stall next to Miss Dish who makes some very pretty bits and pieces. It's so good to talk to other crafty ducks to get tips, tricks and encouragement to keep doing what I'm doing.



I also met boorah, who makes cute kids stuff. She was also very kind and held my fort as I scoffed a roll and did a quick whip round to buy some presents from Hot Toffee, one of my favourite jewellery makers this side of town. I got some two-tone green drop earrings, and a Little Mary Moo purse to put them in.




As we packed up it began to rain ... again ... We went to have a cold beverage at the local bowls club, classy and just before we left a bunch of bucks turned up. Not the four-legged type but the ones that get drunk and wake up covered in honey tied to a street sign with a dog licking their face.



The buck in residence was a massive, puffy type who was bright red from alcohol and poor circulation I suspect. He was wearing a shirt that said 'Ugly people get married to' ... we both read it and though 'to who?'. There were some witty things just busting to be said, we refrained however, as though his grasp on the English language was minimal he looked like someone who liked to head-butt and bite ears off.




Now it's back to art, craft and other messy stuff to get ready for the Twilight markets to be held in April. To read other takes on the BrisStyle day try Moose and Bird and Rocstar Dog ...
