Gloriousmess! was part of the Etsy pop-up markets at the Village Bizarre last night as part of the Sydney Etsy Team and we had a blast! Yes, there were crazy gusts of wind that blew everyone's stuff all over the place (one of my stall neighbors, Miss Wright Designs, helped me chase some of my runaway Chook brooch necklaces down... it had been blown over to her stall. Thank you!). Yes, it got a bit chilly towards the end of the markets. Yes, The Rocks Markets staff had to fix my stall canopy and pull it back down after a particularly nasty gust of wind. Yes, I wished I had more time to chat to my other fellow stall-holders, including my other neighbor Geometric Skies. BUT!! I had so much fun!!
It was so lovely to chat with everyone who stopped by, getting to know some of you a bit. The best part was the smiles! As corny as it sounds, I was literally warmed by everyone's beaming faces and squeals of "how cute!" as the crowds passed by. Like I told the Hubbs later, my job is done :) It was just a nice, warm and fuzzy feeling so thank you for bringing a smile to my face all night!
The Etsy stalls (THE place to go for awesome hand-crafted presents and goodies) weren't the only market stalls there.. there were tons of other stalls up and down the Rocks area full of goodies and food alike. A couple of people who stopped by had their faces painted or adorned with crystals and glitter from the face painting stall at the Bizarre and there was plenty of music all night long just down the lane from our stalls. If you haven't been down to the Village Bizarre yet, get your butt down there!! There will be a new group of Etsy stall holders each week, including Shiztastic (who'll be there this coming Friday), so go check 'em all out!
