Andy at The Night Market
Posted August 20, 2012on:
Andy joined me at the Heart of Ladner Night Market where I had a table promoting my books. The night market is held once a year and is a fund raiser for The Delta Hospice. It is a wonderful family event. Live entertainment, face painting, a bouncy castle, fresh produce, jewelry, various local artists displaying their wares as well as tasty treats are featured. Across the way from my table was a vendor selling Turkish coffee and baklava (yummy). For dinner I had sushi and my husband had samosas. There is something for everyone. Many young families with toddlers, babies in strollers and tweens were about, as well as grandparents and other seniors. I was amazed at how many dogs, of all shapes and sizes, attended. (all on a leash and some in strollers)
Andy and my dear husband helped sell books. Andy soon became friends with Ali Baba the camel and Pedro the pony, all very popular with the kids.
There was a lot of interest in my newest book Amanda in England-The Missing Novel. One woman wants to buy one for her 88 year old aunt who loves reading about England. How sweet. A draw was held for a free copy as soon as it arrives from the printer. It was great to see many people out, having a good time and stopping by to chat. I hope everyone who bought Amanda books, enjoys reading them.
Andy had a good time, made many new friends and was greeted by one of the organizers of the event, Michael from Open Space Yoga.
I was pleased to be part of this local event and thank the organizers for doing such a fabulous job.
