Farmers Market and Deveron Projects’ 21st Birthday Celebrations

Having bagged the Fundraising Stall at the Farmers’ Market on 3rd December (which coincided with Deveron Projects’ 21st birthday), we set up our gazebo in a rather cold Square at 8am. Our stall featured Huntly Writers, Orb’s Bookshop and Handmade in Huntly, and provided a showcase for all three groups to promote their wares. We had a good morning in terms of sales of our anthologies – the most recent, ‘Open With Care’ and our previous anthology, ‘Weaving Words’ –  and there was a lot of interest in Ron Brander’s hot-off-the-press book, ‘Over the Hills from Huntly’, which we also sold several copies of. Jo Roberts of Handmade in Huntly also had a successful day with sales of her beautifully crafted items. Unsuspecting but appreciative passers-by, both young and old, were given a given a free Christmas present in the shape of a book (thanks to all the volunteers who selected and wrapped these over recent weeks) from Orb’s stock of quality second-hand books. We enjoyed helping Deveron Projects celebrate their birthday over the course of the morning – and Maureen’s and Mary’s hand-held signs for Orb’s Bookshop have featured in the mass photo taken in the Square later in the morning! All in all, an enjoyable and profitable day.
