Twilight and some sneaky f**kers at the YDM ...

The Twilight Market was a flaming success! With no naked flames but many pretty solar and battery powered lights. Lots of people turned up for a look and a good many more just happened to 'find' us in the city square. The promotional team from BrisStyle did a smashing job, they are some very cool ladies (and market men!). It was such a lovely night with the cool Autumn air, the band playing and the happy shoppers. I am gearing up for the next one!

Start of the night ... just getting dark

My little stall

Beautiful old city hall with some market goers



The Young Designers Market was on Sunday. It was nice, a good steady flow of people looking and buying. However I think some sneaky prick might have taken a little wad of cash from my money box. I guess you just think it's market, people are nice, but maybe not so much?

I thought I always had my eye on the money box, but when I think back there were so many times I was distracted, when Mum and I were both talking to customers or talking to each other. So it's a super nerd burger money belt for me next market, no more sticky fingers in my money box while I'm not looking.

On a more upbeat note, the winner of the cute little heart from last week is Kim, see her neat blog here. This week I have a rabbits heart ... all you need to do to be in the running is leave me a comment on this post.

win me, win me, win me!!


See you soon and stay tuned for more market updates.

Oh Hayley that sux about your thief. I had my first definate case of shoplifting at the twilight do... Bastards!

Hope the sneaky thief fell over making a getaway and sprained their ankle!

Tania said...

Damn. How below the belt can you get? Maybe you shoud wear the new look money belt above the waist. Just in case?

Oh my, You shouldn't trust a market so much, after all, it's full of people you mostly don't know. A fanny pack may look hideous on the hip but at least you'll feel something when a hand grabs in.. Be careful next time!

Oh me too!! I had a ring stolen at YDM, not impressed. Obviously the cheeky sh*t was on the prowl on Sunday.

Alyssa said...

that is SO low that someone stole from you, and the lady who commented above!

your stall looks fab though, hope you had a wonderful time and made plenty of sales :)

BLONDEDESIGN said...

The market lokes fab, shame on thieving, hope Kama gets them!!!! Kx

Jen said...

Such pretty, pretty things! :)

Oh I remember your stall from the twilight markets! Very cute. So horrible to hear about the theft though. A money belt sounds like a good idea from now on :)

Becky said...

I love all my cards I got from you on friday: so cute!

Shame about the money, but some people can sink to new lows. I was running a free childrens archaeology program last year and one of the parents stole an artefact while I was helping his child! It's frustrating but all you can do is believe that Karma is going to bite them in the butt!

Car said...

Let's hope the sneaky little so & so bought a tonne of ice-cream that made him so sick he was up all night ;)

Glad to hear the 1st twilights went well! Sorry I missed it now :(

I have a little market apron that I wear. It's only a half apron (so not very long) and has a big front pocket. I keep my cash in there and a pen and notebook. It's very handy actually, and very safe.

Can't believe someone stole your hard earned cash. That's really rank.

I remember your amazing brooches at the twilight markets.....I kept deliberating over a teapot and saucer with something like "thus allowing....changes"
It was mighty sweet and I was rather crestfallen when I returned home (without it) and realised just how much I liked it.

Sorry to hear about your burglery....some people are wallyburgers!
Thankyou for your creativity-inspiring allround cuteness!

nice to know you ~........................................

Thats awful.
I like Tinniegirls thoughts on apron wearing, but I like to take a little shoulder purse with two compartments worn across the body with a couple of well placed zips.
I like your use of the word 'svelte'.

Kellie Christie said...

You stall look awesome!! Sucks about the thief, Karma will bite them in the arse!!

CHANTELLE said...

i agree with kellie, that's horrid! your stall is lovely :) those brooches are the cutest!
