« Part 3: Just back... Part 4 of Craft Markets.. series Part 5: You just never know.. »

Today will be my 14th market day since starting up again 6 weeks ago…
I have been attending the Kelvin Grove Urban Village markets, Boggo Road markets, Riverside markets and today the Redcliffe “whats cooking in the garden”
The first 5 weeks were average and I turned over roughly the same amount… last Sunday however, I double my average… and yesterday tripled it… [not including the double day last Sunday]
I have not posted any of this here … I was waiting to see how it all went… here are a few pics…

And some of Deb’s Owl Hats…

to do with your quality and also that you

are regular
