I have been selling things since I was 5 years old. I started with the lettuce I grew in our Yorkshire garden. I put it in a wheelbarrow at the garden gate, and our neighbours would put 3d in a jar for me. I was hooked! I have loved selling things ever since. Since leaving school I have sold holidays, books, planes, crystal ornaments, duty free items (ahem!), more books, jewellery, books, vintage buttons and now haberdashery.
This lovely lot of lace and braid comes from Central Asia. I have friends who work there, and they in turn are trying to run a business to give a better life to refugees. A noble cause, so I bought products from them to sell. I haven't seen anything like it here in NZ. So next week I'm taking this to market. I'm hoping it will make a lot of crafties very happy, because it is beautiful AND inexpensive.
So, want to play shop with me?
