Glebe St Markets

Well it was a beautiful day at the markets, but being a non-regular got the crappiest spot ever!!!! Me and Naomi got there early which made absolutely no difference, even though we had pre-booked, and saw our coveted spots being whipped out from under us. Number 33 was the spot we were after and wouldn't you believe it the guy who dithered before us took OUR spot. Bugger it! And the swappers were driving me and Naomi insane. They would dither for ages on what spot they wanted and then went back and swapped it for another spot, argh. A tight ship it aint at Glebe. Anyway, had a lovely day and sold a few things. Would have liked to sell more, but considering our tiny spot it wasn't too bad. I was happy to sell two scottie dolls to appreciative buyers. I love those lil' man friends and just want to spread the scottie love far and wide. Seems like everyone, including me, has some Scot connection in Australia. Those crazy gingers are everywhere I tell you.
And just to catch up with some bloggy swaps. Here is the printsy exchange swap I participated in. I did the one in the bottom left hand corner. I printed it on material so people could make it into something. Me, I like a bit of functional art so I thought it would be fun to make a purse or patch with my seasons print. Thanks everyone who participated. Thanks Nate who collated it all. And here is the round up on the gocco card swap organised by clothpaperstring. Thanks Sarah! I was put in two swap groups so I received a couple from another group which are just gorgeous. I'll be sending those girls some cards as soon as this market business winds up next weekend and have a bit of time to reprint. They are all great and I don't think I'll be able to give all of them out. Some are just begging for a frame.

What fun goodies in your swaps!

Sorry the Glebe St. thing didn't work out too well. I haven't done those sales in a long time. They were so often extrememly good or extremely bad. You just never can tell how it's going to go.

I always like Glebe market, but feel it's a little crammed and hard to see things on stalls, so maybe being in a teeny spot was good. I gravitate to out of the way stalls just to get out of the crowd. And yes, I agree, I think the op shop ladies get the best stuff. They're probably sticking stuff up on ebay as soon as they get home. Crafty old devils.

ah, the unpredictable world of markets.
i feel your frustration.
gorgeous day it was .. i was hawking my stuff on the other side of town at paddo.
looks like you had a lovely mix of things, always wish there was a keyboard function that would let me isolate a product from a photo, zoom in on it, then turn it around so i can get a really good look.

or i could just go to your stall.
hope the next one is better.

Your Glebe stall looks great. I have very fond memories of that market (I lived in Glebe for years). And as for that printsy swap, well I am just full of envy. I didn't get involved because I thought it would be too much trouble. But seeing the prints you received I'm thinking I will next time.
