Maurice pops up!

Last weekend was the Vintage Village Christmas fair and Maurice's debut as a pop-up shop.
It was all very exciting and a little bit stressful.
Would Maurice handle the journey ok?
Would people come and visit our new pop-ip shop?
Would Maurice be a good pop-up shop?

I needn't have worried. He made the journey without even a wobble and he looked like a proper little shop, better than I dreamed he would be.
We had so many visitors that people were waiting to pop in at times, just fantastic.

I set him up as planned. He looked a little bit like a junk shop from the outside but on the inside he was a very could say sleek...a real shop.
I was so proud.

We sold lots of goodies to people looking for perfect Christmas presents. I sat very happily in the corner, sipping mulled wine (thanks B) and had lots of lovely chats with our visitors.

It really was the most magical day, something I want to repeat in the future.

Thank you if you came to visit us and support us, it meant so much.
The days went by so quickly and I felt a real loss on the Monday that it was all over.
I am now completely and utterly in the Christmas mood. Glad to be able to chill out and be at home more.
Maurice is parked up, right where I can see him. I love him more than I did before.
I hope to share more adventures that we have together, who knows where the roads will take us.
Thanks for reading. X
