The Cluny Craft Market

Today was the Newcastle Craft Mafia's first Craft Market at The Cluny. It was also my first ever craft fair! It was so much fun, tiring though as I had to get the bus through with all my stuff as the damn trains dont run at normal times on a Sunday haha!

It was great to meet some of the other member's from our group, and to see what cool things they make.
I sold 6 things woohoo!!! I wasnt even expecting to sell anything haha, so it was a pleasant surprise :) I also bought two things, one of which was a gorgeous button bracelet from Nuada Accessories and the other a super cute felt milk bottle magnet from Giant Button . I wanted so many things but I didnt have much money on me so Ill wait till next time to buy more goodies!

Here is some pictures of my stall/table, and some shots of the market in action:-

It wasnt very busy but I think the more we do it and the more people here about it we will get more visitors :) I have decided that although my fabric for my table super funky and colourful, I felt that it ditracted from the necklaces I had lying on it. Hmm, so now Im thinking, either choose a plain fabric *cries* lol, or buy some sort of necklace board to hang them on....

I also need to get my photos of all the new stock and hairclips taken asap so I can pop them on the website, since its looking abit bare, oops!

Waaaaaaaaaaa, its been too long!

Eww, and I just put my hand in a puddle of meg spit, nice. (she dribbles constantly, silly kitty!)

Right so, its been a while. Ive been working alot, but finally my hours have gone down abit so I have had some crafty me time! ^__^

I spruced up the shop website...after clicking on every damn option on admin on Mr Site. It looks snazzy now though!! Here's a screenshot:-

Just incase you dont know, its ;)

I decided to make some new earrings for the shop, which I will unveil to the world in a few days :D All I can say is they are pretty darn cute!!

Also, I have signed up to two craft fairs, one of which is the Craft Mafia fair at the Cluny, Newcastle Sun 16th August!!! (Poster created by a fellow craft mafian :D)

Clearer details can be found at

Also, incase you havent seen these, I thought I would share. Momiji Doll Gashapons! ^___^ I popped into the Travelling Man the other week and low and behold they have a Gashapon machine...*squeals*!!! You can also buy them from Chicki if you dont have a shop near you that sells them. They had loads of different kinds, so I got two haha. I got a winner ticket (yes, you can also win Momiji goodies from them!) in my first, which won me some really cute Momiji greetings cards, and inside the ball I got super cute stickers and a little tote bag with a doll print on. The second gashapon I bought came with cute stickers and 2 seriously cute key covers! I really should have taken a pic of these. Here is a pic of some other goodies you can get inside from chicki....

I think Im going to scoot now, need to order loads of fimo to get cracking for the craft fair, I managed to use up ALL of my white, and glitter white, doh! xoxo
