Magnolia square Brighton.....

Back again from 3 days of 'utter shopping heaven'. I love going to markets, not only because of the chance to sell my clothing and accessories, but also to shop like a crazy woman.
Magnolia square has just been at Brighton town hall. We had a fun 3 days, and it was a great chance to show off my winter pants and long sleeve tops for boys.
 
I am always conscious to try not look too girly on my stand. It is really hard though when girls clothing and accessories tend to look pretty no matter what you do to them. I have a new table and cart all painted up which ties in nicely with my stand. 
This cart I picked up from my local antique centre. I am always finding little gems for the kids rooms, cubby house and of course - my stand.
Over the next week I will show you some of the wonderful stands that were surrounding me.
Again, I really enjoyed the new friends I made, and I look forward to catching up again along the way. 
I slept well last night...and today for a afternoon nap. Today I gave myself the day off to rest, but it's back to work tomorrow (after I take Lucas to swimming and before go to school tomorrow night), I need to put in for holidays I think.

Oh thank you for the comments. I was really trying to make my stand look like a kids playground, with the grass and table to act like a treehouse (with the ladder etc).
The cart was a great find I love it. It sat in the garden for a while all dark and brown, and now it looks beautiful and bright....it's heavy though!!

I hope you had a great and successful time - the stand looked all bright beautfiul and bubbly!
And thank you for your piano painting tip - I am actually itching to spash some colour over it but I haven't mentioned that bit to my husband yet - he still hasn't recovered from the day he woke up to find i had painted the kitchen lime green and the floorboards white with sprinkles of glitter all over them ( I was only 23 at the time and it was our first flat!!)
Enjoy your rest

Thanks everyone. It makes dragging it all back and forth to market worth it - when it makes people smile.
