The opening

Well, what can I say? We made it just by the skin of our teeth, some extremely late nights and early starts were had, but it was worth every minute of it. By Saturday morning we had moved into the studio and the shop was all set up, ready and waiting for customers. The other stallholders were all raring to go, lots of plants, cake and candy and vintage bits and bobs were on offer, and the tea tent was brimming with the most yummy selection of cakes I have ever seen.

So did anyone turn up? Gosh, about 200 to be precise! On Saturday the place streamed with people, the sun shone and there was a real magical buzz about the place, it was a really special day, one we'll never forget. Sunday was nice too but the weather broke later in the day, we had a lot of old friends that had come to visit, some that we hadn't seen since we'd moved up here, so it was wonderful to see them all. All in all a fanstastic weekend.
My feet haven't hit the ground since, hence the reason I'm just getting round to posting now! I'll get some better photos taken this weekend, all I can say is that I'm loving working in my studio, I'm having to be dragged out of the place! And amazingly we've had customers every day this week so far! Long may it continue!
I'll leave you with some pictures of the weekend, will be back soon.

It all looks wonderful Lisa! I'm so pleased it was a success last weekend and has continued to be so all week. Looks like a lovely place to work. I really love that red cabinet. I used to have one like that about 10 years ago when I lived in Liverpool but had to leave it behind when I moved. Have always regretted that. I hope you continue to get lots of customers to your lovely new little studio. x

I'm really please that the weekend was a success, you deserved it after all your hard work.

Your studio looks great I am very envious as mine is still looking like a building site.

Hope your success continues
