As I promoted in my previous post, on Saturday I was at the Finders Keepers craft and vintage fair in Didsbury, providing human powered transport for Tallulah Taboo’s stall. It had been a while since I had last ridden the Yuba (August has been quite bike-light) and I really enjoyed being able to use it for something useful. The fair was quite enjoyable, although the vast majority of the things on offer seemed to be aimed at the more female end of the market. Seeing as the fair was craft and vintage, maybe in the future I could get together enough vintage bike stuff to set up a stall of my own, providing a money-spinning refuge for the many distressed-looking husbands and boyfriends you tend to see at this kind of event.
I didn’t get a shot of the bike on the way there due to a sudden downpour which made me less enthusiastic about taking pictures. This is the stall as it was set up when the doors were opened.
A selection of the pretty, shiny things on offer.
A complementary Tallulah Taboo fridge magnet on its new home, the Yuba top-tube (some bending required).
The remaining stock and display materials packed up and ready to be taken home.
The elusive me being caught on camera whilst setting off.
Riding off into the sunset.
The exercise also helped to alleviate some of the wisdom tooth pain (I find cycling is a good distraction from things like toothaches and other pain in areas of the body not used to drive the bike). On the way back i bumped into a group ride which included a tandem. Quite a few of them seemed interested in the Yuba, reinforcing my feeling that lots of people would own cargo bikes if only they were more aware of their existence. All in all a good day, I look forward to boosting Tallulah Taboo’s green credentials again in the future.
