Hi All, This is my first blog after the new website was launched !
I just wanted to give an update about my recent market fair at Fort Brockhurst in Gosport over the weekend.. The weather was really great and the atmosphere was really lively and cheerful. Since it was the half term, there were lots of kids around, enjoying burgers and ice-creams! There was a lot of footfall, nearly 7 thousand people in total! But, as we are all aware, times are tough and people were really watching their pennies, and were not spending much on anything which was a luxury! Things like jewellery, household decorative items and art works were carefully considered before buying.. all in all, it was a good day for the vendors and the buyers, can't complain!! Since, I've been there a few times in the last couple of years, I have formed a few friendships with the other makers and we have developed our own makers community ! Thanks to the English Heritage for the historic venue and the Gosport Gallery for organising such a wonderful event supporting local artists and businesses !!
I'm definitely going back for The Christmas Fair !
