Country Living - The Aftermath!

Me looking pensive!
Well, finally it is all over after months of making and prep and, even though it has been a 2 weeks since returning from the big smoke, I am still shattered!  What an experience!  Would I repeat it????  Well, maybe, but I would definitely opt for a better stand position.  We decided to take up the offer of a reduced rate stand in the Newcomers hall (albeit a very small reduction), but the room was on the second floor and very dark and oppressive.  For 2 days there was very little air conditioning so it was like a sauna and we definitely suffered in terms of footfall.  The event was very well attended, hundreds of people but definitely aware of these penny pinching times.  Overall the event was worth doing, especially as there's been post event interest and I'm now selling on another hand made site (, but the 12 hour long days are definitely something I need to get into training for!
