Introducing our Organiser Vicky
Where do you run Markets? Southampton and Hedge End
What is the item you can’t live without other than your family? My 1980’s VW Camper Van. Just going for a drive is fun when it’s in an old camper.
How many children do you have? I have a little boy, Luca, who has just turned 3. He is more than enough for me!
If you woke up tomorrow as an animal, what animal would you choose to be and why? A penguin. I love the fact that they have the same partner for life and that they are equal in their relationship; they share the tasks of looking after the baby penguin and catching food.
Where is your favourite place to be and why? Anywhere on the Isle of Man. Prior to having a child, we went on yearly motorcycle holidays there and it’s definitely my happy place. We still go most years but have to take the car until Luca is old enough to ride a motorcycle!
What is your favourite children’s book? I loved anything by Enid Blyton as a child. At the moment I really enjoy Richard Scarry books with Luca.
Cinema or fancy restaurant? I like a fancy restaurant!
Which one spring, summer, autumn, or winter, let us know why? Summer. I am totally solar powered. I can deal with anything life throws at me if the sun is shining!
Name one thing you always carry in your handbag? Well as I am usually accompanied by a toddler I’m never without wet wipes!!
One bit of information you wish you’d known before becoming a parent? Don’t compare yourself to other mothers. Everyone struggles but some hide it better than others. You are doing your best and that is all that matters.
Best bargain you have found at a Little Pickles Market? A smart outfit consisting of Trousers, Shirt and Waistcoat, originally from Marks & Spencer’s and in perfect condition. It cost me just £1.50! It was perfect for a wedding that we were going to later in the year.
