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.
