. . . a pic of my stall with 'makeshift' banner, which I think gave it an added 'tweedie' appeal! (The table was a little longer than I expected but a little length of tweed underneath would have sorted that out - note for next year!)
I decided to do a 'Name the Dinosaur' competition with one of my 'prototype' dinosaurs which has been languishing in my craft space at home for far too long!! This was a really fun thing to do, and I'm looking forward to contacting the lucky winner (contact details were added to the sheet along with a chosen name for the 'Dino'). I thought it added an extra fun dimension to the stall - there's nothing like a bit of interaction with the 'kiddies'! Quite a few of them wanted to walk away with him there and then :)
'Little S' was spending my 'takings' as soon as they were coming in on tattoos and burgers and all sorts of silly paraphenalia, but it was that sort of day!
. . . it was really a family event for the most of the afternoon - lots of kids running around with painted faces - which was nice to see :)
. . . and the lovely backdrop of the Lews Castle
All, in all - a good day out, enough sales to make it worth my while, and really another experience to tuck under my belt. This music festival event has lots of fun possibilities, so if I'm invited to attend next year (there are only a small group of us crafters who attend), I'll be a little more prepared in advance, with some more smaller, fun gift ideas. It's a lovely event to do, so I hope to make a return next year :) (with another dinosaur!!)
(P.S. Yes, and the music was excellent too - I even managed to have a beer! However I did manage to get myself burnt to a frazzle - silly moo! I retired a little earlier than planned to rest my poor sunburnt face - who needs to visit the 'face-painting' tent when you can look like a burnt tomato with no effort at all - ooops, I knew I'd forget something on my list, eg. sun cream!!)
