Well, we hosted a market… and it was wonderful. Stressful, but wonderful and I dare say we will do it again.
More importantly, I had my first stall at a market. That was probably the most nerve wracking part of the whole experience. Generally I love talking to people, but not about my stuff….. that always feels a little… well, egotistical. However, I gathered my nerves, organised myself and got to work.
I bought a nice wee purple tablecloth, and a bookshelf, and some green and purple felt. And I set up. I had a supply of business cards, and they were popular (hello to anyone following the link on the card to this here blog.)
Popular products were definitely the “Plants you can’t kill” – knitted cactuses in wee pots… as well as the novelty hats. I definitely needed a larger range of both. The Coffee Cuddlers were a keen seller, but I didn’t end up with a large enough range of colours I think. The whole experience was wonderful, and I am sure I will do another one, but I definitely would have done better if I had have found the time to have the stock on the table that I had planned…. and if I had remembered the apples for the apple cozies…
