After replying to an email yesterday and saying No to a market this weekend, (for my own personal reasons) I have just received another email from a new market I applied for, knowing I would be going on their waiting list for this one (late application automatically goes onto a waiting list). I immediately rang a friend. She sells honey so is pretty well guaranteed a spot for any markets she applies for, and has said if I get in we can share the car. And because you have to take your own table, she has several foldable ones so I can borrow one of hers.
I know all markets are different, so am not expecting much. But it is in the city, and only runs quarterly so hopefully that aspect will mean more people. Which means more chances of sales. I’m not going to talk numbers but any market I attend all I hope for is my stall fee + $20 to cover petrol/food (ie: coffee). Which is not much to ask for, and anything over that is a bonus.
I was heading into my craft room this afternoon anyway to unpack from this weekend and sort my things. This gives me the incentive to actually get it done.
It’s a relatively new market and is in the city. Now I just have to wonder what I will take. I’m erring on the side of simply taking the same things I had at Woodbridge.
Let’s see, so some brooches and earrings in friendly plastic, earrings and bracelets, and which necklaces? Maybe it’s time to set up another mock stall? Tonight’s job. Take a bit of everything, but make it quick and easy at both ends.
Looking at these pictures, I may work on a combination of all three. Maybe one tall lady, several small and a basket of bags. Although I have yet to hear back which particular stall size I have. Which means different fees, but maybe more space. A corner stall will give me the room to have more than a single stall size.
In the meantime I will unpack and sort my things, and wait to get my confirmation email.
Catch you later 🙂
