now that the Art Bomb Project is over, I can finally give my time back to my jewellery making/selling. well, ive a couple of crochet custom orders to finish up but other than those, im all about jewellery!
I spoke with the local farmers market which runs every Friday 8am-2pm i believe and theyve agreed to let me run 4 weekends for a trial to see if theres any business for craft. i believe theyre allowed to be a certain percentage of nonfood traders but theyve yet to have a consistent nonfood stall in their midst.
im hoping that one could be me :)
heres where i start getting nervous. ive never had a stall at a market before. my first and only experience has been this art bomb project but we were giving items away for free.
i know i need to purchase a table and an umbrella of some sort but i cant afford some 3mx3m gazebo type thing or one of those 6ft folding tables. ive seen a nice camping table with a hole in the middle for an umbrella so im thinking ill go with that. then theres sorting out how to display the jewellery. how many pieces minimum should i have? should i display them by price, by style or colour? then theres the question of do i sell my crocheted items as well? or is that too much? but i want to give myself a good chance at success.
then more questions pop up…what about when nature calls? do i close up and find a loo or does one of the other stall holders look out for my stall for a few?
if anyones done a stall could you please give me your best piece of advice :) i have four days to try and make this thing a success and i really want it :) real bad!
i appreciate it. thank you in advance xo
