Global Market Day
Yesterday Karen and I visited a nearby town as they were having a Global Market Day.
It is held once a year and the girls at my work had told me about it and said how good it was. So I decided I wanted I see for myself and Karen fancied it too.
The Global Market is a group of stall holders from around the world selling their goods. Anything from sweets and cakes right through to clothes and garden furniture.
I did take a couple of pictures however they aren't very good but I'll put them up anyway.
The weather was really rotten, heavy rain and gusty wind yuk.
I felt quite sorry for the stall holders it must have been very miserable for them.
Anyway here are the pictures.
The stalls weren't really set up for photographing.
This is the only half decent picture I could get - they were selling French scarves here, and very lovely they were too.
I did purchase a couple of items.
This beautiful bowl made out of soapstone. Isn't it lovely!!!
Do you know that the elephants is my favourite animal - don't ask why 'cause I don't know, lol.
I also got this great picture. I fell in love with it the minute I saw it.
At the top it says - Home Is Where The Heart Is and I've got it hanging in the hallway.
The colours really match the decor of the hall as well - always a bonus :))
Another purchase I made was some Italian soft nougat made with strawberries. I just couldn't resist it. Mmmmm yum yum. I'm going to be eating that slowly and in little bits. I'm trying to watch the calories you know :))
Karen also bought a couple of items - a beautiful dream catcher for herself and some Christmas presents - she likes to be organised :))
Anyway we really loved it and will definately go again when it comes back next year.
