    Great giveaway! I’ve completed the survey but you didn’t have a section on feedback… I was going to say that alongside the festival/market/event coverage that you do so well, you could maybe have an upcoming event bit where your readers could find out about things that were happening soon like up coming markets etc.

    Anyway love the site and am a regular reader.

    Hello Lucy. I live in the States, and realize that I’m not able to enter. But I was wondering if I could use a couple of the photos you took for your entry on David Bromley (Picture first and formost) on my blog. He is such a wonderful artist, and I think readers here would love to see his work. Didn’t want to use the photos without your permission. Thanks so much.
