So how did it all go? Shambolic, in a word. We were late by an hour due to van issues and the Olympics traffic fun. Logistically it was quite the nightmare as if you've been to Camden, you'd know maneuvering oneself is a challenge enough in the crowds, let along a massive van full of delicate macarons. The management were hard to get through to at this point and so we circled around Camden, Kentish Town, Chalf Farm yadi yada. Finally when we reached our breaking point we decided to try out a back route which took another thirty minutes and came to a dead end. So let's just force the van through the crowds. Which we did. Set up took a little while and was a bit embarrassing as we were quite obviously late. But once we were up, I must say it was rather lovely, although the extra props (and ironed table cloth!) were very much missing. The weather was co-operating, the live music was cheery, and so were the people. However, it was rather quiet. Perhaps the weather was too good to loiter about Camden in? Perhaps not many people know about the night market. Perhaps a lot of work needs to go into the market before people start viewing it as an evening destination. Perhaps all of the above. All in all, we sold, we had fun and we got back home shattered and battered.
With everything else going on with Anges de Sucre it's unlikely that we'll be having a stall at Camden Lock again but I'd definitely go back - even if just for the Frenchie and the Chin Chin Labs! Reshmi x}}
