Our first day on the market
There were mixed emotions of nerves and excitement on setting up the stall for the first time. It’s a lot more personal when selling products you’ve made yourself and the hope that other people beside your friends and family actually like what you’ve made!
Our stall was in the old area of Long Eaton market next to the “watch strap and battery guy” Dave. The other traders were on hand to offer friendly advice and made setting up a lot more stress free! Here’s a pic of the stall, not bad for a first attempt but I soon learnt I would need a few more smaller items to fill out the display as well as more visible price tags.
I would like to thank everyone who took the time to stop by and pass on their comments and improvements. For this week I am hoping to try out a pitch on the High Street (I have just bought a gazebo for the occasion!) and I also have business cards printed for those who wish to look us up online (school boy error!).
Thanks for your support, see you Saturday.
