Just last week I heard about the Reghed "Knit & Stitch" show - actually, I did hear rumours a few months ago, but forgot all about it.
So when it was mentioned again recently I mentally punched myself in the face for not organising a table. Still, it was worth a phone call, just to see if there was room for a little one.
And there was! Whoop :)
So, on Sunday morning, we packed up the car and off we went,
The table was half the size we usually get, but I wanted that as I wanted to see if I could manage a little one, and we did by taking a grid-wall stand and using some boxes to lengthen the display a little.
And we got to share our "back room space" with a bloke in a Kilt ;) aka Mainsforth Alpacas.
I didn't overload the table with packages this time, I pulled them out of boxes from underneath as people requested them. The white tableclothes were provided and I must say, look better than my usual burgundy, so I will be investing in one of those.
Then just after lunch, Hubster returned from 'stretching his legs' to tell me they had "Veggie Scotch Eggs in the Deli".
"A Veggie Scotch Egg, but they only have one left".
Well, I nearly knocked the table over trying to get out - forgetting in the meantime to ask where the Deli even was in the building. So I spent a good five minutes running about Mr Bean style, trying to find this elusive Scotch Egg.
As you can see, I did, and I ate it all, despite already having had my healthy, low-calorie packed lunch just an hour or so before.
Yum, next on my list of things to try and make I think :)
All in all, a good day. We met a good few people that follow us on Facebook (big wave if you are reading), sold some stuff, chatted about Alpacas a lot (interesting creatures those) and made a bit of money, 10% of which was donated to The Manchester Dogs Home appeal.
Thanks for coming, if you did, and hope to see you again soon :)
If you have never been to Reghed, it is definitely worth a half-day out, load of things to see and do there. It is just a few minutes drive off the M6, junction 40.
