Of Cabbages And Kings

More markets are coming up this weekend - I'll be spending Saturday and Sunday at the Of Cabbages and Kings monthly markets. They'll be held at Abney Hall, smack in the middle of Stoke Newington. It'll be my first time with them, and I've heard good things about it, so, fingers crossed it'll all go well. 

Miwa and I will be sharing a stall again this weekend. It's turning out to be a pretty good partnership so far - we shared both our stalls last weekend and made a bundle! Plus, sharing means we don't have to pay as much for a single stall, so more profit all round! The Little London Fields Festival last Saturday had a huge turnout, and I'm so glad the sun came out for a few hours too. I was really dreading having to set up in a muddy field.

Anyway, if you're thinking of getting a stall of your own at a market or fair, but are hesitant about the costs involved, I highly recommend looking for a likeminded someone and doing the sharing thing. Plus, you get someone else to talk to during quiet periods, and you can bitch about unpleasant customers to each other!
These headbands (as well as some others) will also be up for sale tomorrow. I'm keen to take orders for custom sizes, especially for the turban-style headbands (first photo), so get in touch by email or in person if you'd like one. I reckon they're great for winter...keep your ears warm and all.

Alright, I'm off to sew up more bloomers. They were a bit of a surprise hit last weekend, and I sold out of nearly all of them!
