After the slightly disappointing Doilie Market at D’Aria in Durbanville, followed by the more than a little inconvenient crashing of her car coming home via the R300 on Saturday afternoon, Chantelle and I really needed things to go our way on Sunday if there was to be any hope of salvaging our work weekend – and pleasingly the Century City Natural Goods Market turned out to be a good one!
(Although it didn’t start out that way – I made the awful mistake of handing the cupcakes over to a porter to transport for me without completely thinking it through: sadly he did the transporting via a tilted two wheel trolley, which obviously squished everything up in their containers! The Pina Colada cupcakes were a complete write-off, but thankfully the rest could be saved/salvaged. I wanted to cry, shame, Chantelle did cry!)
Anyway, trade was brisk and Chantelle and I managed to sell most of our stock out over the course of the glorious summer’s day, with the market operating in the usual 09:00 to 14:00 time slot. Loads of people, a great vibe, awesome music (live band was a group of older gentleman performing under the name of Time Flies – what an awesome, awesome party vibe these guys manage to create!), entertainment for the kids (dog trick show, train rides, etc), and best of all (well for Chantelle and myself anyway) – Mom and Dad brought Jessica over for a visit!
(Jessica also had a good adventure this weekend: Saturday with Oupa and Ouma – with a sleepover – and Sunday with Granny and Grandpa!)
So all in all it was a fabulous way to spend a sunny Sunday (and not just because of the fantastic Kudu burger I had for lunch) – even if technically we were working! ;)
