Makers Market – my first market!


So last weekend was my very first market!

It was a funny old day, I’m not really sure how to sum it up. In the weeks leading up to it I’d managed to make shed loads of stuff so I had plenty of stock. We were relatively organised, being only the second last(!) people to set up. Tom had designed some awesome signage and I think the stall looked half decent for a first go. We had a cash box, receipt book, snacks, cushions to sit on… only one thing missing. Some customers!

It was VERY quiet.

The market was arranged off the back of a university open day with thousands of people visiting, but somehow they never made their way into the hall where the stalls were. Bit of a shame as it was otherwise a great little market with lots of talented stallholders selling their gorgeous stuff.

Anyway I did feel proud of our little set-up. Here are some photos!

I won’t write it off altogether, it was a great practice run for a busier market, it forced me to build up my stock and has helped me get organised. I also met some very lovely fellow stallholders. Have a look at their Etsy shops:

Very pretty paper goodies from Gloriousmess:

Really looking forward to my next market wherever that may be!
