28th and 29th October 2011

Sorry I haven't been able to update you on our market coming up on next Friday night 28th and Saturday 29th October. While Phil was in India her online service went down and i was unable to access the blog. However here I am now. Above is Phil and I in our witches hats that Phil made.

Above are some new products I will have on my table, I will also have a new range of magazines Somerset Studio's and the beautiful Jeanne d'arc Living. There are new exhibitors as well as your usual favourites. And of course the wonderful home cooked coffee, cake and sandwiches.

We are very pleased to have a lovely lady all the way from Mt Barker who makes and sells the most incredible florentines, flavours like Tropical, Pina Colado, Jamaica Dream are only 3 of 10 different flavours, treat yourself and these will make wonderful christmas gifts if you can hold onto them that long before temptation overtakes you
Not the best copy but don't they look just mouth watering mmmmh.
While you are in Guildford attending our market why not take the time to visit a few of the local shops who are very supportive. Just along the road in James Street is the beautiful Storia.
I couldn't resist this lovely little porcelain star for Christmas from Storia.
And from Panache around opposite the Rose and Crown hotel I bought three of these butterflies on clips to go on a white tree, now you know how i love white.white

and several more shops on James street well worth looking into.
And somewhere to eat, you can spoil yourself at Jezebelle's, what an opulent restaurant, the serve Australian style tapa's, great to share with a friend.
Something more down to earth, on Friday night across the road is the well known Alberts great for Hamburgers, so something to suit all and you will find several more down the street.
Look forward to seeing you all

Cherry Blossom Time

In the foyer we hung a beautiful vintage kimono and on the steps we had Japanese lanterns with a meandering river of white and black stones and in amongst candles, this looked wonderful when it got darker and we lit the candles.
Following are images of our market held on the weekend. It was really rewarding to see so many of the exhibitors decorating their stalls and dressing in the theme we set, many stallholders had made cherry blossom branches and it looked wonderful.

Many dressed in Kimono's

This image was taken inside the foyer, we had tea candles lit and it looked lovely, especially the Friday night.

And another display of vintage kimonos. I will post more later, my computors having a go slow moment.

I have been busy making new stock for our market in a Japanese theme, vintage albumn pages, vintage lace and handpainted bird images. Still making those cherry blossoms, should look amazing. See you on Friday night in my Kimono, that should be fun!!

Jeanne d' Arc Living Magazine

I am selling a new magazine from Denmark, Jeanne d'Arc Living which until recently was in Danish and lucky for us it now is also published in English.
This magazine is printed on recycled paper and epitomizes everything that inspires me. A lifestyle magazine with lovely homes, gardens and recipes.
I will have them for sale at Miss Johnson's Vintage and Handmade Market next week, below is a sneak peek at some of the pages.
