Nostalgic Mix .. the sequel!!

Many thanks to everyone who has sent messages or called into the shop to say how they enjoyed the fair
There will be another (hopefully many more!!). I have provisionally reserved the hall for Saturday, March 26th 2011. There's a bit of sorting out of numbers of tables and how best to use the space bearing in mind lessons learned from the first fair, but if you would like to go onto my mailing list when bookings are being taken then please use the email me link and head your message 'Nostalgic Mix 2' ... Thanks.

As before, I'm telling bloggers first.

Apologies for the delay in putting on the last batch of pics. and sending off feedback forms (coming soon) to stallholders ... but ..... how about this for mitigating thingies?... my PC died, the router died, the new hub threw a hissy fit and ignored my laptop and then the laptop ground to a halt and finally, the printer (not to be outdone) refused to find anything and sat in a self-absorbed silence.

Black clouds hung above my desk and thoughts of hurling the unco-operative things through the window swirled through the red mist!!

Nostalgic Mix

Well, October 9th came and went in a flurry of stalls and a crowd of visitors asthe first ever (and not the last!) Nostalgic Mix Fair took place in the Civic Hall in Totnes.

A very big thank you to all of the stallholders and their helpers and also to our hundreds of visitors!

So sorry that it's taken until today to get some pictures posted but my PC died, the router threw a hissy fit and my elderly laptop refused to recognise a new home hub!!

Oh well, they say that these things come in threes. Thanks to a very nice lady in the call centre (Delhi I think) all is fairly well now and the laptop and hub are on speaking terms whilst the old PC sits in the corner being shunned!! I know that doesn't help but it makes me feel better.

I plan to put all of the pictures (including a lot more of the busy part of the day) onto the Nostalgic Mix blog which I will link to this.
More soon.....
