Well, it is at St. Albans. Today was the first day of their Chritsmas Market, located in the ancient walled Vintry Garden, next to the Cathedral. I was almost ready for opening time! I was open and the stock was out, but I was still sorting my shelves at the workshop end of my chalet so didn’t actually start turning until lunchtime. It’s amazing how much time it can take to set up a temporary workshop. For a day or two (as for most fairs this year) I don’t mind working in a bit of chaos, but this is the big one – a continuous stint of 25 days – so it was good to get everything in some sort of order before I started.
The chalet still looks a little bare, but I’m still working on additional decorations and additions – I’ll try and add these over the next few days.
