Tavistock Goose Fair 2019: The Shower Skelter Day

Well here we are, Goose Fair Day is here and actually it was a pretty busy and hectic day in General,  suppliers called, girls text me and the rain made things a rush but it did better than I thought, even if editing the vlog is not as quick as I expected to be but we shall see.

The vlog is below:

The rushed Morning: 

Well my eyes woke up at 9:20am, I had crashed out from after video editing the night before which for me was draining but it kept me away and well it made things even more hectic with replies and calls from suppliers and messaging from a friend who got stuck in crisis and wanted money to fix it so I had to , the vlog does give a big hint. 

But after changing and shower, I was running in hr rain by 11:pm  and got to my customers for advice to give them. But that wasn't too bad. 

The Country Market. 

Now I got to the Market since that was the closest to my customer's house for the fair, it was good to start it there now too. But I explored, from the samples of cake recipes made with vegetables you would not expect to be there and also more on the wool this time as well as very shy goats, also my supplier did cal at the beginning of this but not sure why i didn't hear him. But oh well.

Eventually, it was nearing 12 and I ran down the hill to the main square. 

The Fair. 

A Browse in the centre: 

Well, actually some stalls didn't appear from last year and some did, even a fake Greggs food van was there. But some amazing new mini bits, there were massive pop tarts boxes, a friend from work said it was shit for him being there and what also was there was a drink which had a meme from it which is the rel review, but that you will see more of later. But No brand new stalls with new ideas arrived in, tech stalls were all about knockoff aipods for £10.

Vaping was still a good topic with different flavours and even CBD related and there were things like pork scratchings as well as the Yorkshire pudding Wraps. Rasta hats were sold in the black, it was like a posh cap. Passing a stall that was selling chicken sausages and I had a try.

But then I walked my way upwards, Gambled £2 on the monopoly fruit machine and lost which is fair,  then it was a case of walking my way to the Bus station. There were loads of good offers such as Oreo Cupcakes and even more items.

The Skelter Fair views: 

So for a change, I paid £2.50  for 2 goes on a Helter Skelter. But this was a few viewpoint pics but like it was also a fun slide that did remind me of theme parks back in the day. It helped with the views.

Then I walked to the fairground, it was puddles and also some good crowds here and there but still not as much since they ha been put off by the weather. But most of the rides were buzzing with crowds with the good and low points.

The walk-up. 

Then it was time to walk up the main road, which has some gaps, the weather was looking better and I wandered up the road, with more food stalls loke more sweets, doughnuts, crepes, greek food and also the Cavery. The hoodies at the back were adorable and reminded me of S since of the cinderella punk/tatted edition.

Then I decided to get the usual doughnut burger, so it was £4.00 for 4 doughnuts and £3.50  for the burger which is £0.50 cheaper than the normal van I got it from. It was actually a nice girl that asked about glass before she gave me the burger.

Then it was finally about 1pm and I was walking home with the burger and doughnuts. It was actually sunny at that point. Then I finally got home by 1pm and it was time to then get this edited. 

The night is then approaching.
