We had a lovely day today at the Canberra Handmade Markets at Kamberra Wine Company, thank you to every one who came by and said hello! My mum and husband were amazing and stayed with me for a few hours each, and my dad came by and helped us put up our umbrella in the morning… I’m so lucky to have such great family members. So many people also came by to say hello or buy things from my stall! JA’s mom and dad both came by, Chloe & Scott, Miri, Natalie, Elizabeth, along with other friends and work colleagues! It really did help put me at ease, so thanks again everyone =)
I totally confused everyone by calling the badges and magnets “buttons”, so will be changing that for next time! I am thinking about actually making some with proper sewing button backs, so we’ll see how that goes.
I was quite nervous setting up, because everyone else’s stalls looked so professional and they had so much stuff! But my little stall did better than I expected, so I’m really happy =)
My best sellers were the Yuzen paper magnets, and the single alphabet letters (I thought they’d do well). The least popular were the jumbo buttons magnets, I don’t think I sold a single one! I also found out a few things about my set up, mostly is was pretty good, but next time I’ll lay more things out on the table instead of having them in jars, as some things got neglected.
I wasn’t sure going in to the whole market adventure if it would be successful or not, but it turns out my creations were fairly popular, which makes me a happy panda!
