Day Out in Devon

Today Linda and I drove down to Devon to Tavistock. Neither of us had ever been there before and we were interested to go to see the layout of the Pannier Market. The journey took us about 2 hours and was well worth the time spent as when we arrived in the Town Centre we were both entranced. What a beautiful place it is. Very ancient and with gorgeous architecture all around and the wonderful ruins of the Abbey. The Market is very impressive as well. We were going to see if it would be possible to have a pitch there with our French Textiles. We were delighted to see several fellow dealers that we have known for a long time working there. They thought we were a long way from home but not so. We are so used to getting in our cars and driving for miles to go to work that it is no hardship at all - especially when we are going West. Unfortunately the Market is full at the moment but we have put ourselves on the waiting list. It may seem a long way to go from where we are in Dorset but since we have been going to Cowslip Workshops at Launceston, Cornwall, we have made many contacts in Cornwall who are always asking us when we will be going there again so it seemed the right thing to do. We will be keeping our fingers crossed very firmly.
We are due to go to Cowslip Workshops again in May 2010. This seems such a long time away but once Christmas is over the months will fly by especially when we start going to France again shopping!!

Bridport Christmas Craft Market

We had a lovely day at Bridport Christmas Craft Market on Saturday and in spite of the foul weather we had plenty of enthusiastic customers. The Hall looked lovely with plenty of festive goods on sale.
