Merry Market

Market day today at Goodwood in SA. A very happy, successful market day which is always welcome in the Silly Gilly camp. When I woke early it was thunder and lightening but the sunny weather prevailed and we met lots of lovely people. Here's a view of today's market stall. Kate and I are forever playing around with the layout of the stall and today was a bit of a winner.



I introduced two new products to the Silly Gilly repertoire today - Dancing Rainbow Ribbons and some very touchable felt brooches. I was pleasantly surprised when they nearly sold out but I will post pictures of both new items here tomorrow.

Also three new girls hats in store now. My apolgies for the small photos but the mosaic maker I use doesn't seem to want to give me a big sized version of the mosaics anymore... anyone have any hints?


I'm off to That's Not Garbage next week to hopefully find some supplies to create new display racks and stands for upcoming stalls.

I must also say thank you so very much to those of you who have left such encouraging comments after my last post and sneak peek. It really is inspiring and exciting to read your words. I have so many ideas just bubbling up out of seemingly nowhere now that I have said my intentions out loud, to myself and to the world! More samples of the little fella to come and some friends will be joining him too!

The stall looks great. The Dancing Rainbow Ribbons look very pretty too.

I wonder which mosiac maker are you using? I just gave the one at Big Huge Labs a test run and it will create a nice big mosaic for you. Link.

Hope you didn't get too hot in the afternoon. Crazy weather huh?! You're on a winner with the ribbon thingos. And I saw a lady walking around with one of your rainbow bags. Perhaps 'rainbow' is the new black? XX Gillian
