Well, the Easter Fayre at Studley Wood Golf Club should have been a good opportunity to promote The Pantry and sell some stock – unfortunately, we awoke to heavy snow, which got heavier throughout the morning, so although the Pantry people undaunted struggled through the blizzard (well, quite big snowflakes, actually) to be there, along with several other stallholders, there were very few other people around to buy our products. The snow stopped finally just around the time the market was due to finish, and now that we’ve packed everything up and are back home, the sun is starting to break through.
It was disappointing, as this will be our last chance until June, but it’s all part of the learning curve. One of our regular stallholders, David at Bucksum salads and vegetables, was kind enough to donate a fabulous box of vegetables and fruit for us to raffle, and we did sell some things, so we didn’t go away empty-handed. But it was a shame the snow had to thwart our plans for an encore.
