We had another great Winter Market day in Devonport today. The weather was with us - the hardy stall holders out front were blessed with a bit of sunshine on this crisp winter's day. I took my hat off to them (from the warm interior of the Community House) for their staying power - luckily we had the delicious homemade hot soup on hand from the wonderful fundraisers from Takarunga Playcentre.
I love the sunshine .. after all, it was in the brochure that tempted our family to move here from UK a few years ago .. however, I do love the Winter markets in Devonport - when we squish into the hall and keep warm. It's lovely having the busker indoors too - creating a great atmosphere for stallholders and customers alike.
Ralphe, our busker today, is a regular at our Market - and what an amazing voice he has - it sets just the right tone for the Market - lots of compliments for the fantastic job he did today - have a listen to his work on his website - www.ralphe.co.nz.
We had a couple of newcomers at today's Market - helping to offer a wide range of wonderful and unique items to our customers. I was also approached by several potential new stall holders who had come to check us out to see if they might join us in the future. All in all it was a great day for catching up with old friends and starting to make some new ones too.
Can't wait for the next one now!
