Today was my fun fun fun Happy Yess Market Day!!!
It was a slow day with not many customers or visitors. I think too many things were on in Darwin on the same day. Also because of the long weekend many of them were probably camping or travelling too.
But I made a small profit of $46, spent $4 on cold drinks leaving me $42 which I am placing in our Borneo Holiday fund.
|Hey Hey... Scary Market Matron.|
Anyway lets move on... Dolly sold a pair of outgrown shoes for $4 and a toy for $1. With her $5 she purchased herself a wand... as all happy fairies do.
But latter in the afternoon everything became dramatic as Dolly stepped on sharp plastic with her bare foot, she screamed and bled. I ran to her pushing everyone out of my way as all crazy mums do. Thankfully one of the market visitors was a nurse and patched her up with a 1st Aid kit. The Rambling Expat then took Dolly to the hospital where they cleaned the wound of dirt embedded deep and patched the wound with "magic purple glitter" glue and strips instead of stitches. Her foot is bandaged up and now she needs to not walk on it for a few days.
I'm giving a Shout Out to my friend Kelly who has lent us a stroller to get Dolly from A to B. And a Big Thank You to the wonderful nurse who saved the day. To Merle for helping me pack up my stall. And another Thank You to all my amazing neighbours who always pitch in and help when disaster strikes. Great support always makes things easier, happier and frugalistic!
The hospital services were free so all I spent for the day was $4 for the cold drinks at the market as I just couldn't quench my thirst. But I do have my eye on some gorgeous locally made jewellery, paper dolls and prints. It's local and I want to support local instead of global mass produced stuff.
Have you been selling any of your clutter or thrifty finds this year?
