April 1 was Capelfest 2012. Bean Sprout Bubba last attended Capelfest in 2010.
The weather was very wet to begin with, and windy at the end. It made for a very interesting day at the markets.
Everything was piled on top of the tables in baskets, as I didn’t want to risk getting any stock wet on the ground if it rained again.
I was very glad to meet all the new parents and grandparents. Some mums had questions about cloth nappies, while others were keen to purchase cloth nappies as gifts for their nearest and dearest.
Every time the wind blew, you could see me and other stall holders hanging on to their marquees and umbrellas for dear life. Quite worrying at the time, but I chuckle now at the memory.
My stall was located in Gazebo Park Lane off Buchanan Road, where all the food was sold.
I had some of the best butter chicken and lamb korma with spiced basmati rice I’ve ever eaten in SW WA, by Spice Odysee, a mobile restaurant servicing Busselton (Rotary Park lunchtimes), Dunsborough (3 nights a week) and Margaret River (3 nights a week).
Met a few lovely stall neighbours too!
It was quite refreshing to be amongst other marketeers who were selling non-handmade items for a change. Till the next market day!
PS: I’ve added a few items to the Clearance section at my online store labelled ‘Dust and wind’ for stock that got a bit damp or dusty at Capelfest, or were used as demo items.
