~Stall Photos from Rivers Meet Market~

Stacy @Sostacysews and Lexie @secretthimble and I have had a lovely day at Rivers Meet Market in May. We were pretty quick at setting up our 3-in-1 pop-up shop - all ready with 30 minutes to spare for our flasks of coffee and jubilee chocolate brownies...
I aimed for a red, white and blue theme including some jubilee union jack bunting on the gazebo.
Best-sellers of the day for me were candles, vintage fabric, brooches, vintage knitting patterns and bric-a-brac. Unfortunately my tea cosy, mug warmers, pincushion and bunny didn't sell...
Below - some of Lexie's cushions made from repurposed coffee sacks and embroidery hoops - available on
Some of Stacy's lovely bags (right of photo) and she had lots of cross-stitched badges and cards that will shortly be for sale at Vintage Rose in Selby, North Yorkshire

It's a shame the warm sun didn't show it's face but thankfully it didn't rain!


  1. so glad you had a lovely day. Your stall looks great and a leisurely flask & brownie before opening - so organised, I'd have still been flapping about so I'm very impressed!

  2. Good work! I am glad for the sales you made and hope your other lovely wares will soon sell. A friend and I set up a table at several craft fairs last fall in the Portland Oregon area. It was my first time and even though I sold very little I had a good time. Isn't it amazing to see all the creativity?

  3. Gorgeous stall photos! Thanks for sharing. I do like your idea of whipping out the flask & brownies before the show began! :-)

  4. Hi Sally, I think you're very organised and your stall looks brilliant, I love your friends coffee sack items.
    Hey it's interesting what you found sold and what didn't, I'm taking that onboard for my craft fair in 2 weeks. I've had similar experience before where some of my 'makes' just didn't sell yet the fabric & raw materials where what people wanted to make their own.
    Some great things in your pop up shop.

  5. Glad you had a good day, the stall looks fabulous. I've heard stall holders mention that things that didn't sell at one fair did really well at another, so you'll probably find the same.

  6. Your stall looks lovely!
    glad you had a wonderfull day!
