I didn't get a chance to take any pictures at the Christmas Boutique Market, Ciara from Happy Food at Home, I hope you don't mind me sharing yours.
What an amazing day yesterday at our Christmas Market. Thank you so much to all of our traders that were here, they really made the day a huge success, the variety of stalls, the warm welcomes, makes it so easy to hold our annual boutique fair.
A HUGE massive thank you to all that visited yesterday, we hope you enjoyed the complimentary mulled wine, Get West archery and Roisin Meaney storytelling. Our little tea shop for the day was a huge success, it was great to see so many people sitting down and enjoying the chat and craic throughout the day. We hope that everyone that visited enjoyed the day as much as us (although I do have to admit, feeling a little tired today!).
But all of this would not be possible without the huge support from both my family and Bryan's, it was all hands on deck. David (Bryan's Dad) was directing cars and traffic along with Eamonn (my brother), Muireann (Bryan's sister) and Suzanne (my sister) were manning the coffee shop, serving tea, hot chocolate and coffee!! Mary (Bryan's Mum) provided the very warm welcome at the gate serving our complimentary mulled wine. In the background my own parents were taking care of my David, John, Ned, Mary-Anne and baby Levi, while cooking dinner, so when the market was over we'd a hot meal to eat. Without all this help from our families, we would not have gotten through the day. Also a huge thank you to our friends and neighbours that helped out and lent us equipment for the market. I must add that we'd a lot of help from our families before the market, getting the coffee shop set up and ready, putting up marquees, working long evenings after a days work. We truly are forever grateful to all and everyone that makes our Boutique market fair a huge success. We hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas, Thanks for all the support, Lynda & Bryan
