Today was the first time that I’ve had my own market stall. OK, it was only half a stall, and only for half a day, but it was interesting, none the less! I shared a stall with my friend from my Thursday knitting group, Alison. She had half a stall of hand-knitted and crocheted goodies, I had half a stall of my own made jewellery and we had a whacking big basket full of skeins of Jelliebean Yarns in the middle!
This was my end of the stall, after the initial set up but before tweaking (and I did put one of my signs up, Dad, just after I took the picture!). Half a stall was just right for the amount of stock I had, and now I know what sort of amount will fill one of these stalls.
I made some sales as well! Not many, but I came away having made a profit on the day, which was lovely! And as it’s in a student area, apparently trade may well pick up once the University term starts again. Plus it’s not long until we’re in the official run up to Christmas, so hopefully people will think that my jewellery would make nice gifts!
I’m in the process of setting up my Etsy shop, and once it’s all ready, you’ll be among the very first people to know! I’ve got some awesome photographs, thanks to my Dad, so I’ve just got to work out details like postage, descriptions and other shop like policies! Yeah, give me a little while longer!
