I’m generally a bit useless at displays so I asked my friend’s advice about how to set up my 3x3m square space to best show off my wares.
Honestly, that was the best thing I could have done.
The first visit was a reconnaissance mission to see what I had & what we might need. She left me with a list of fabulous suggestions & a week to gather bits & bobs, work out what to use to make displays; then make the displays, buy sides for the gazebo, paint this, stuff that . . . it was all so much fun.
We drew chalk lines on the floor of the outline of the tent, placed everything within those lines, finalised a few bits & bobs that I still needed to do & off she went.
Around us we could hear various ones getting flustered, a reasonable amount of swearing & general stressed out grumpiness but we calmly put up our gazebo & attached the sides before bringing the furniture in.
With the minimum of fuss & bother we placed & secured the displays, then added the products for sale & the price tags.
My stall faced the ocean, the sun was shining, people were smiling, I met some lovely crafty types, had great chats with kids & oldies, listened to a fabulous musician with a great voice (must find out who that was) & it was fun.
I sold nothing but I expected that I wouldn’t, in fact, I would have been surprised if I had.
I’m looking forward to being there again on Sunday 6th December from 9am to 2pm & also at the pre-Xmas night market Friday 18th December 6 to 9pm
pop in & say hello, I'd love to see you xxx
