a busy week

 Last week was a very busy one for Markets - as well as our usual weekly markets, we had 2 extra events. The first was on Easter Monday at Gressenhall Museum - we were in a lovely new marquee in the courtyard, with much more space and light (not that you can tell that from the photo!). The weather did not join in the celebrations though - it rained all day, and everyone was thoroughly damp and cold by the end of the day - and that was just us who'd been dry inside, the poor visitors were decidedly bedraggled!
Thursday was a much better day weather-wise, when we had a stall at the Spring Fling at the Royal Norfolk Showground - a fantastic day for children
 with a  food and farming theme, loads of tractors to sit in, cows, pigs, chicks and rabbits etc to cuddle - and snakes for variety. Apologies for a dark photo of our  stall , the doors at the back made it quite light, but didn't help with a photograph. The second shot is of our craft table, where the children could make cupcake themed cards - we had a steady stream of young crafters, and just about managed to keep up with the supply of card blanks and matting shapes.
