If you were to make a wish list for the best weather and people for your first market it would look a lot like this. 24 degrees, light breeze and clear blue skies. Friendly stallholders who buy you coffee before the start of the day – seriously, I’d never met this person before! (Tracey from Chalk n Cheese Clothing, what a delightful human)
When the gates opened I suddenly felt nervous. I stood for over an hour and didn’t really get any interest. But with some help from family and friends I rearranged the stall to be more inviting. The customers were full of questions and compliments. I can’t wait to do it all again!
Mini Sewing Kits
These proved to be an absolute winner. As well as the addition of little bags of stuffing and the canvas bag to keep them in. This came about after I sent out a survey and got some really great suggestions. All the small business advice will tell you to ask your audience, so it’s great when that works out.
I’ll be a Little Beauty Market in Frankston on Saturday 9am to 2pm. Entry is free.
