We just held our first ever market stall on Saturday and it was a success!
We thought we would share our little set up with you so you can see how it all looked…
We had an hour to set up before the event, which you’d think would be plenty of time, but I’d say it was just the right amount… With so many different things to put on our table it can take some time to get on top of – I’m glad we did a trial run first!
We came super prepared with lots of snacks, change, business cards and sign up sheets, and managed to persuade my mum who popped in to see how we were getting on to get us frappicinos too. If you’re going to do your first ever stall, we recommend getting someone you know pop in through the day who is happy to bring you supplies!
It was great to meet so many lovely people and to see people’s reaction to what we make and do. Having only run our etsy boutique before today, it was really lovely to see people laugh and smile and get involved. It is a long day and a lot of work goes into it behind the scenes, but it is definitely worth the extra effort 🙂
The only down side to working a market is wanting to buy everyone else’s stuff!
I think next time I’m going to give myself a budget for a treat – it’s very easy to spend everything you make at these events 😀
Thanks to everyone who made it and supported us throughout the day!
We’ve already booked up our next event and are thinking of switching up our set up a little… For our first attempt we think it was looking pretty sharp! We’d love to hear you think 🙂
Also, we are delighted to have been featured on A Blackbird’s Epiphany today too, so if you would like to know even more about us and how we work, make sure you pop in for a visit!
