Well the day finally arrived - the Christmas Shopping Day at Orford, and I was finally having my first ever stall selling my crafty goodies and quiltystuff. I was incredibly nervous first thing this morning as I packed my car with stock and props, but needn't have been - as soon as I arrived at Orford Town Hall, I was given a very warm welcome by Alison - and she had very kindly arranged for my stall to be next to hers so she could keep an eye on me, and I was very grateful for her kind words as I set up my stall. In no time at all, the first customers arrived, and I'd made my first sale (thanks Alison!!!) and I was enjoying every minute of it! I was inspired by wonderful pictures I've seen on my Norwegian friends' blogs of their stalls at craft fairs, and hoped that mine would look as good as theirs. The other stall holders were all really friendly and incredibly helpful, which was very much appreciated. It was lovely seeing lots of friends there today, some who came to buy my quiltystuff and some who'd just called in to say hello. Well the day flew by, and I arrived home tired but VERY happy, and I'm looking forward to taking part again next year!
