Reindeer at The Moon Underwater

Yesterday I attended a christmas event at the Moon Under Water Wetherspoons in Enfield.

In all honesty the event wasn’t as big as I was expecting, and I wasn’t expecting it to be a big event at all. There were a grand total of 5 stalls (most of them sporting the cheap, mass produced, generic christmas items)  and, although it started at 12, barely any customers arrived until about 2pm.

My boyfriend and his friends came along to help out and keep me company until my sister came along to help. When she did arrive she brought along some awesome decorations for my stall including this amazing penguin tea cosy! Apparently it was her housemates grandmas and they said I could have it! I’m so thankful because it is so adorably amazing!

I was starting to feel a little down about the lack of customers and sales but knew that everyone would be arriving later, when the reindeer arrived.  I was so excited about the reindeer that I’d even taken my big DLSR camera with me!

When they did arrive, all of a sudden there were crowds of families with kids and I really hoped I could make at least one sale.

Their ears are so fluffy!!

I managed to sell two items in the end (three if you include the one to my sister) but then I know I was catering to the wrong crowd at this event. At least I made back the money on the stall. Plus i gave my business card out to a lovely lady who said she was involved in lots of craft fairs! Hopefully I can find a few more events to set up stall in. 🙂

At the end of the day I’d say it was a success. I managed to cover the cost of the table and had a lovely catch up with my sister who came to help out.

Plus, I got to see the reindeer…Something I may have been just a little too excited about. 😉

‘Till next time!

Childs Graffiti Apron

This Apron is now available in my Etsy Shop!

This cool apron is perfect for little boys (and girls) who are just getting into baking!

It features a griffiti print on cotton and is lined with a matching grey cotton.

It has one big pocket perfect for holding all the little kitchen essentials such as cookie cutters and rolling pins.

All the straps are strengthened and the neck strap is adjustable.

It is available in bigger sizes and/or with the children’s baking set (pictured) on request.

This would be a perfect gift this christmas especially if paired with a cute children’s baking book!


Childs Polkadot Skirt now in Store!

If you have or know someone with a little girl who loves cute, pretty things then this would be an awesome gift this Christmas!

This adorable skirt is 100% cotton and features two layers of different sized polkadots.

The elastic waistband makes it a very comfy fit and also gives it room for growing children, It measures 23 inches when relaxed and 38 inches when fully stretched. It is 13 inches long.

It is the perfect summer skirt!

But wait, didn’t I say it was perfect for a Christmas present? But that’s in Winter!

Although I do think it is the perfect summer skirt, I also think it would be adorable in winter with a pair of thick white cotton tights.

If you like this skirt but would like adjustments to the waist or length then I do take custom orders. I would take around 2 weeks for me to complete and I can make it to any specifications you would like (longer, more/less layers, different colours, adult sizes etc). Just click the ‘Contact Me’ tab at the top of this page to get in touch and I will see what I can do for you!

The skirt in the Pictures can be found for sale here
