A success.....

So it was my first makers market at the weekend - at Studio 15's Markers Market in Penrith. We all had a great time, had a good laugh and made a few quid.  Here are some pictures of my table....

I would like to thank Studio 15 for making this happen - lets hope this is the first of many.
Studio15 run creative workshops - so check out their website for their current workshop programme
