Special brickworks market

A very good morning at the Brickworks market. It was a grand opening of the entire site. Somehow a pile of old railway ties were stacked at the back of my pitch, so I just hung some quilts over top (necessity is the mother of invention)

As usual Chezvous delivered my breakfast right to me.

a couple of quilts that did not sell, next time, perhaps.

Allanah, a music student brings her fiddle and busks most Saturdays. She plays such lively music its puts most people in a good (spending?) mood and cheers up the greyest day.

Vintage sweaters,Aran, Cowichan and Saskatchewan Smoking jackets are selling well, here are a couple of contented customers.

Nicky from Cookstown Greens, a neighboring booth, has been eying the Cowichans all season, today she found one that was just right.

At the end of the market, it runs 8am - 1pm, a New Orleans type Mardi Gras troop, with drummers , sax and fantastic stilt walkers paraded about. They were so invigorating and joyful they made the worst part of the day, packing up, much easier to bear.


  1. Ooooh, how can you taunt me with your yard sale wares of quilts etc. when you live so far away! :o)

    Hope your sale goes great!

  2. This sounds like it was such fun...wish I had been there. I love the old brick wall behind your booth....I go for old brick streets, buildings, etc.! I thought of you the other day as I was shopping in a small antique mall...saw some lovely scarves. Don't think any of them were anything special but I will probably always think of you now when I see vintage scarves! You always have so many beautiful things on your blog. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Wish we were closer so I could visit you! What fun. You always have such beautiful posts.

    Happy Autumn.

  4. Oh Jan I love your quilts. Can't imagine those two didn't find a new home this week. Well, maybe next... Have fun at your markets!

    Warm hugs,

  5. You always hit the best markets, I'm jealous.
