How was it you ask?

I've climbed down off my cloud finally after an amazing debut market last Sunday.
I can only thank all of the wonderful craftspeople, community groups, and fine food makers that took a punt on us and agreed to come along and be part of the very first The Bay and Beyond Market.
Also, the crowds of people that came along!
The day dawned with great weather, Apollo Bay was buzzing with holiday crowds, and we were run off our feet for a good 3 hours from opening.
Too busy to photograph the busy! 
But we've got some gorgeous pics of the market over on our facebook page.
Here are just a few of my favourites!

Amazing roses from our fantastic cafe mistress Jayne's garden.

Truly lovely and rare vintage fabric that I didn't get a chance to look at from Cloth & Co.

A mini emporium of loveliness from Wendy June.

All manner of great cards and paper goods from Victor Fox.

I did get an opportunity to add another little piece of Luce Handmade to my wardrobe!

The beautiful work from the hands of Rachel Hine Textile Treasure. Her stitching is an artform.
A lavender fox heatpack has made her way home with me!

A glimpse of the food on offer in the cafe. Oh, those tarts!
Thanks to Wendy June for the photo.

And my partner in bunting hanging and market organising, my friend Sally Forrester!
You're the best, Sal.
Thanks everyone!

It was great - you and Sal should be very proud. Well done!

Fiona, so wonderful to have you down with us! And after all, a market is made of stallholders, so you can take a bow too. Thank you for being here, and see you soon. Jo xx
