We were invited by the Malta Crafts Council in collaboration with
the Valletta Council and the Malta Tourist Board to take part in the
festivities of Valletta Day.
There were many participants, we had lots of people browsing and
admiring our work and thankfully, some were also buying : )
As you can see from the above picture, it was sunny (sunglasses) although cloudy,
hot (me wearing a light top) and windy (tablecloth flapping)!
Here is a close-up of my table.
mobiles, keychains or purses. I was quite surprised and
pleased to have a customer returning and asking whether I had
any more with ladybird charms since the one she bought from me
at a previous sale was so very well liked. She bought two more!
watering cans which I decorated for Easter...these attracted quite a few people
who complimented me on them...and I sold a couple too : )
is a set of glass painted glasses with a sunflower design.
More decoupage...tealights in different sizes and decorative bottles.
More decorative items in decoupage.
One side of my table.
On the right hand side you can see some of the other stalls in the Artisans Market.
This picture was taken quite early when the market opened so the crowds had not quite set in.
A band march by the Wallace Pipes and Drums along
some of the main streets
in Valletta provided enjoyable Bagpipe music.

Here are some photos of In Guardia displays
During the day I met one of my high school teachers, a nun whom I had not seen for several years, also a cousin again whom I had not met in a long time.
The Mayor of Valletta visited all the stalls and he stopped to chat for a little while with all of us.
A few other friends stopped by as well...it seems the market is quite the place to meet ~ how lovely!
My children came to help me again, we set out quite early and my husband also joined us after work...I guess this is becoming quite a family concern : )
By 3.30pm we were all set to go home, tired but happy and a little sunburnt!
Hmm...must make a note to pack some sunscreen along with my crafts next time!
