I am currently attending most markets ad hoc so not much point putting them here just now.

My one regular spot is Llanyravon Manor Rural market in Cwmbran on the last Sunday of every month. The manor itself is worth a visit with a nice tea room and there are outdoor events throughout the year some of which the market coincides with.

There are between 10 and 30 stalls attending this market at various times with the most stalls being from September to December. 

Well worth a visit if you have a free Sunday afternoon and fancy a little fresh air.

Checking stall layout for market Nov 2017

It’s been a while since I posted a blog but things have changed a lot so here we go.

Initially I was laid up with health problems for a couple of months in 2017, as per usual it was through the busy months of July and August, sods’s law being what it is.

On returning to work I then suffered another setback when my workshop was hit by a falling tree which demolished one side. This rendered my workshop unusable and I was limited to making small items in my converted bedroom workshop (not a good idea for you married guys, good job I am single  haha)

Limited funds and limited mobility made the job of rebuilding a slow and lengthy process however, as with all effort the results were better than expected.

An extra 4 ft in length allows more work area and extra tools to be used and the addition of a suspended floor for more comfort made it worthwhile in the end. Still a bit of snagging to do but almost there.
