hey ho, it’s off to market I go…

My email arrived eventually (when you’re waiting for something it will always take longer, it wasn’t that bad really) with a ‘welcome aboard’ and all the information I needed.

With a smile on my face I tripped back into my craft room and stood at the wall of props considering what I would take.
I finally decided on two large girls, 4 small busts, bracelet hanger and a basket with a small selection of bags plus of course the smaller table level items.
I’ve practiced this type of set up enough so I know I can fit it into two boxes and my point of sale. And considering I am giving my friend a lift with her honey and a fold up table I need to be compact.

The promo for the market on their Facebook page has shown my new earrings, so I’m glad I put them in and I will make a few more pairs as well (needed to anyway, so a good excuse to make sure I do).

So I’m all ready to go, with one or two things to add in, and just looking at this blog on the ipad and I want to change it again. So next time you come over it may look different.

More news either before the market (showing off earrings) or after (showing off everything!).

New Market

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.

Do I take a selection asymetrical necklaces, and have a tall display…..20131020-113249.jpg

or a smaller one with the ‘regular’ necklaces…IMG_7567

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 🙂
