This past weekend was the Primrose Hill Christmas Festival. Having participated in the neighborhood's Spring festival, I decided to give their holiday one a try. I was a bit worried for the weather—you never know what you are going to get at any time of the year in London but once we get into the cooler months, that is especially true. All I could picture was pouring rain. Luckily, it was a beautiful day though (minus the chill). The sun was shining and people were out enjoying getting into the holiday spirit.
The May festival was my first ever tabling event. I was careful about it and had a very limited display so I could get a feel for what I needed if I were to continue to do events like this. The last thing I wanted to do was to buy a bunch of display items that I would never use again. This time around, I was ready to jump in and was more prepared thanks to those notes. The wind made it a bit tricky but I managed to get something together that withstood it. We only had a few large gusts that still managed to shake us up a bit!
Thanks to these Primrose Hill's festivals, I have been able to ease my way into events like this. What's easier than working right down the street? I am also grateful for my husband who helped me rent a car so we could easily transport everything without making a billion trips back and forth from our flat and the stall. He also amazingly stayed by my side all day to help with sales and pass the time. It helps so much to have him and friends come by. It was nice to see familiar faces stopping in to say hello as well as some new!
Looking forward to doing it all again in the spring! With hopefully warmer weather :)
