School Fair

This afternoon was a resounding success. Even though the sky was grey and the rain was heavy at times lots of mums, dads, grandmas and aunties turned up at school (even Mrs Swirly and small swirls came to say hello).

Here is my little pitch;

My fancy pegs looked rather good and sold well;

Sadly nobody took home one of my felt purses;

The button bracelets and hair clips went like hot cakes and I only brought a couple of each home with me, half the brooches sold too;

My bags spilled over onto the window sill, I lightly stuffed them with some newspaper just to give them some shape;

The poppy shoulder bag sold and four of my shopping totes. I have taken orders for two more shoulder bags and a special order for two girls' sunhats that match and a request for a brooch, a teacher rather liked it but it had sold by the time she came back so I need to make another for her. And because it went so well it meant that I could add a nice sized donation to the school pot!
