Before i go here's a pic of me and my handmade crafts stall (My first time ) LOL!
Not a lot of people turned up but i did manage to sell a few bits and pieces.
The market is held to raise money for youngsters who have nothing and if the Tories get there way there will be even less for them. 
The organisation is called H.Y.P.E Charity (helping young people excel) so a very good cause and i'm donating a percentage of my sales to Cancer charities also.
The next market will be held on the 26th October 
at 
Unit 12 Ennerdale Road
Riverside Business Park
Blyth
Northumberland
NE24 4RT
If anyone is in the area please come along.
Doors open 9am for sellers and 10am for buyers.

Thanks for looking!
