Easter Market April 7th 2012

 Well our second market was held on the 7th April at the Littlehampton Peace Memorial Hall, and what a day it was!! Everybody arrived bright and early and were all set up for our 10am opening!! and the room quickly filled with customers as they came to see what we had to offer!! and it certainly was something for everyone!! 

Hand-Iced cookie Pops
The coffee machine we purchased for the kitchen did its very best to keep up with everybody as they came in for coffee's and hot chocolates!! I must admit the hot chocolate was extremly tasty but my favourite was the Chai Latte!! yum! and a great start to the morning.......Right next to the kitchen the Easter cupcakes and Hand-iced Cookies from Cake Expectations by Aimee were going like hot cakes.....even I couldn't resist the temptation!! just look at those colours!!

There were oohs and aahs all around and they went so fast I missed out on getting some of those cute little burrowing bunny cupcakes!! how cute do they look? I did manage to get my hands on some white choc mud cupcakes and carrot and walnut so I was happy anyway :P

While everyone was enjoying their morning tea, the children were having a blast joining in on our Easter hunt!! which was only able to happen with the help of some of our amazing stall-holders!! the kids got really excited as they used their clues to hunt out which stalls had the eggs!!

Some of the clues were a bit tricky but all the kids managed to find all the eggs and at the final stall they were given a cute little chicken to take home as well as a bigger chocolate egg!! lucky little munchkins!! and they all had such lovely manners :D

 But food and easter eggs weren't all you found at the Once Upon A Market. Stalls were filled with goodies for adults, babies, children and even pets!! We had two stalls for pets on the day including PupCakes who provided healthy treats for dogs and we also had Help Save the Furry Ones who have a great stall dedicated to saving cats!! Their donation box was filling up with help from the customers.

We had unique, customised art work from the very talented LiviArt and we had kids items including crocheted beanies, toys, pettiskirts, clothing, wooden items and much more.

The stall-holders all did a fantastic job with their stalls which resulted in a very bright, colourful and fun place to shop!!

Baby Blue's Bows

At Baby Blue's stall you could find bows galore for all ages!! I even found myself a great bow with my favourite star - Johnny Depp in Cry Baby on it!! what a find that was.....You can truly find some amazing and unique items at Baby Blue!! Great stall for teen girls!

If you couldn't make it to the Easter Market you really did miss out on a truly fun day!! But that is ok because our next market is coming up on Saturday 2nd June and will have a special Winter Theme. So make sure you come on down and join us for another day of fun! and grab all your handmade winter needs!!
