Happily the new market was as buzzing as ever and the town was crowded for most of the day with shoppers. The canopy worked as a way of bringing market goers into my shop, so I shall definitely use it again next week - weather permitting! (I'm sure you'll be happy to know that it also protected my stock from several pigeon poops! I counted 4 when I took the awning down this evening! ;-))
I was able to welcome lots of new customers to my shop today, but would just like to mention Jan and her sister who had come all the way from South Carolina, with their UK friend on hand to help them spend their money! :) 'Hello Jan, if you happen to be reading this - Thanks to you all for your purchases and it was lovely to meet you! - If you made it to Dairy House this afternoon, I hope you had lots of fun!'
Then in the afternoon I met two more lovely ladies from the United States (one of which reads my blog - so a big howdy to you too!) The power of Blogger eh? Incredible what a small world we all live in now-a-days...
