1 Puddle Lane had a very successful day at Mathilda's Market

I had a very successful and very tiring day yesterday.  But very excited with the outcome from the Markets. The morning was very a good way......but the afternoon slowed down.  I had help from my lovely husband Tony and my gorgeous girlfriend Rae, who managed to have the crowd entertained and in stitches.....the laughing kind.  I had a lot of very happy customers leave with bags of 1 Puddle Lane goodness and I managed to get a few orders too.  So I was so happy and pleased that the last 2 weeks paid off tenfold. The best selling items were the peasant dresses and tops.  I sold quite a few denim dresses and skirts and I sold all my little hand bags except for one.  I got a lot of interest with the boys shorts and sold quite a few.

 A lot of my lovely fans came by to say hi which was really lovely to put a face to the name.  So nice of you to come by.  Also I meet some really lovely stallholders.  Melissa from Pirouette pettiskirts, who specialise in beautiful tutu's, just gorgeous.  She told me that she was in my daughter's (Kate) class in high school.....a small world.   There was Leonie and Michael from Mielie Moo Designs who make stunning cloth nappies and Tennille from Abbey J who has the most gorgeous hair accessories.

All in all we had a great day......lots of fun.  So over the next few days with what's left of my stock I'm going to put them on my madeit store for you to view.

I'm now in the process of sourcing fabric for orders and new stay tuned.
