Selling my handmade items at Duck Pond Markets has become an enormous and very fulfilling part of my life. What adds so much to the experience are the other stallholders, some I am happy to say I can call friends. There is always someone to lend a helping hand when in a pickle, a listening ear and there is frequently much laughter. This post is my attempt at introducing you to some of the stalls, I cannot cover everyone so please do not be offended if you do not appear, I am going with those I have pictures of. This week I will show artisan crafts people at the Sunday market in Heron Square Richmond and next week……..food! We have a really lively and buzzy community, it really does feel like a family at times, somewhat dysfunctional maybe! Kelly out market manager keeps us all in order and as long as we behave all is harmonious. Caron, who started and owns the markets visits us as often as she can and brings her gorgeous family. Both make us feel loved.
Please bear in mind if you are coming to see us, and I hope you do, that not all stallholders are there every week. Most have regular slots and some dip in and out. If there is someone you want to see there should be someone who can shed light on when they will be there next.
As often as possible we have music provided by a variety of buskers, there is nothing like a spot of foot tapping or singing along to cheer the day along. We have even had magicians to entertain us! Carol Singers at Christmas are a highspot, bringing a lump to many a throat.
