Oh yes indeedy, waaaay too many markets in too short a time space. Four consecutive markets this month, and I'm desperately in need of a break from all the constant "making"...
At least for a little while.
Today was my final market for the month - the Mister Market at
And to display my items, I had my wooden type-tray, the black metal drawers, and a myriad of old cigar boxes, not to mention the chocolate-brown corduroy tablecloth - boyish enough I thought.
Nice thing about today was the many cute little details... like the super-fantastic gingerbread men with their psychedelic icing + decoration. They started out at $2 a pop, but by the end of the day they were cut-priced to 50c each. I stocked up, and brought home a bagful of the multicoloured men. Yummo!
Chi Chi's stall featured these sweet little birdy pouches (second from the left) which I mistakenly thought were teletubby-like faces with eyepatches until I inspected them closer. Duuuhhh. The eyepatch was actually a wing, and those weren't ears, they were beak and tail..!
The random assortment of vintage ties, books and toys were all very cool, but something was a little strange about Mr Potatohead and his friends...
And this, my usual Shelbyville stall set-up. On the nearest corner you can glimpse today's new product - an edition of Nudes stickers created from my collection of life drawing sketches (but more about all the new products next post).
I was also much delighted to have some visitors today - Helen (Mr Universe 2008) and Emma (Mr Puniverse) who braved several forms of public transport to make it out to Penrith. The face-painting lady did a great job on Emma's new-look tiger face. Hope no-one gave you any trouble on the train home Emma...
And for the day's absolute cutest moment, check out this little girl doing her best Mr Puniverse impression - what a sweetie!
