Hello everyone, I hope your not drowning in all this rain we've been having lately. I swear I'm starting to grow gills!
Thank you all so much for the lovely comments left after my last post, it's always a thrill to hear from you all x
In my last post I said that I would give you a sneaky peek at my home which I still intend to do but due to this grey weather I've not had enough light to take any decent photos. I want to show you the bathroom but there's hardly any natural light coming into that room so I'll hold off until it all brightens up a bit.
Anyway, onto today's post...this morning I packed a small suite case with my creative bits and bobs and headed to a nearby village to see if the organizers of the local country market would accept me as a seller.
After a brief chat and a look at my products I was delighted to be told that I was 'in', on the understanding that I pay the hefty joining fee of 5p (that's not a typo it was just 5p!). Everyone was so friendly and welcoming and were selling top quality handmade/home produced goods.
I bought a Stilton and Walnut quiche, a jar of onion marmalade and a bottle of sweet cider. I love the fact that everything is local, meaning that nothing has travelled very far.
After dropping the sweet cider of with my Dad I returned home to tuck into my goodies. I only wish you could taste that quiche and onion marmalade. It was absolutely spot on, I should have bought more!
This particular market is held every Saturday between 10:30 and 12:30 at Newnham on Severn in The Forest of Dean so if you live locally pop by and say hello and if you're passing through come on in and get yourself a little treat.
But failing that hunt out your own local market and lend your support, you won't be disappointed I'm sure.
