DelGirl Gifts had their maiden voyage across the river to Tynemouth Market at the weekend. After apprehension and the unforeseen last minute self doubt I’m happy to say it was a great success.
I really can’t say enough how much it meant to have the help and support of my friends. The awesome Carmen came round to DelGirl Towers the night before to help me get prepared after having just worked a full shift was then also waiting for me on arrival at the market at 8am to get set up! How amazing!
The lovely Joolz who trekked an hour and a half to reach us by public transport then began her ever so refined articulation of the history behind our Fair Trade products to passing folk whilst dressed accordingly in her DelGirl Sheepskin coat. (We really should have bought those flat caps Joolz!)
The arrival of market veteran Amanda’s presence no doubt encouraged all those who recognised her cheerful face to hover round our tables surveying all we had to offer.
We were then spoilt by the appearance of trouble in the form of my dear friend Mr Michael Ward injected another level of fun and merriment to the day.
A heartfelt thank you to you all it meant the world to me.
DelGirl Gifts look forward to another Saturday in Tynemouth and hope you can call by to keep our momentum going. Hope to see you all there!
