I love this photo of me by Trevor Fogah-Griffiths, it was taken last Saturday at a photo shoot based on a 1930s theme coordinated by stylist Christelle Kedi at Sixpence & Tanners Design Furniture Showroom in East London.

We were waiting for the models to finish hair and make-up and Trevor said he wanted to try something out and this is the results- amazing, I only wish there was three of me I could make sooooo much more jewellery lol!

Merton Abbey Mills Market
Free stalls at Merton Abbey Mills- what's the catch?

I woke up at 6.30am and got ready for a day at Merton Abbey Mills Market. My mother-in-law offered to come with me and help me set up so I drove to her house and picked her up for 8am. We arrived at the market just before 9am and there was quite a lot of other traders selling paintings, jewellery, clothes, handmade cards and lots more.

I thought it was going to be a good day. We set up my stand for the day and I was really please with how it looked my own mini shop for the day. I texted a few of my friends that lived locally and invited them down and sat back and waited for the customers to start flowing in. I waited and waited and waited- no one was coming lol! I guess that was the catch!
It was just the other traders wondering around checking out each others stalls, killing time.

One of my friends came down in the afternoon and gave me my one and only sale of the day- hooray:)

On the positive side I did have great company, my mother-in law stayed with me the whole day, my father-in law, husband, his aunt and cousin all came down and we had a lovely day in the sun.

My stall at the Thames Festival

Thames Festival 2010

The Thames Festival was great! My brother helped me set up on Saturday Morning and my temporary Elisha Francis Jewellery Boutique looked great! My stall was near the Tate Modern museum amongst the craft village that was set up especially for the festival. My Made With Love bracelets went down a treat and I was so pleased that O bought my materials with me on the second day as I could make them as they sold and also kept me busy as I was there from 10am to 10 pm on Saturday & Sunday. Needless to say I am very tired from the many months of making and the two days of selling. But it was a great weekend and I'm looking forward to setting up a stall at Greenwich Festival very soon.
