Thank goodness for a sunny day! Lizzie and I had a rather disastrous Shepton Flea yesterday. We were well prepared with gazebo and new large tarpaulin and were fine until the wind got up !
Our gazebo was tied to Freidatoo at the back but the front rose into the air and we had to quickly get the tarp off which was acting as a balloon. The gazebo now bent to thingy had to be turned on its back and the lovely security men dismantled it and carted it off ...thank you boys.
It was a really misseling wet rain which soaks everything , we were soaked through and now have cartloads of washing and ironing and drying out to do .
insult to injury! the dress rail fell in the mud
silver lining two ladies had been before the disaster and bought all our heavy coats !!
So as I am want to say " worse things happen at sea " and they do, it still remains we have a lot of work to do .
fortunately the next fair Talent for Textiles at Ilminster is November 4th so we have some time and after 4 fairs in one week a much needed break
Lovely to see all our Friends at Shepton and some faces from way back too
