Market Set Up

September was my first month of regular markets, and it seems I’ve neglected my blog a bit – apologies!

I’m currently committed to three monthly markets – there are more out there that I could do, but I think I’ll wait until it all becomes a little easier (as it surely will when I’m more organised and the preparation becomes second nature) before I agree to do any more!

I did a bit of Pinterest research on the best way to set up my stall, but please tell me I’m not the only person to pin, pin, pin and then fail to go back and read it all, let alone implement any of the advice!! ๐Ÿ˜€ Still some work to do on that scoreย  I think…

Anyway, I thought I’d post some pictures of my set up at the last two markets.

This was my stall last Saturday.ย  Tables were provided,ย  and were smaller than I expected, so I was careful not to make it look too crowded.ย  Notice the rubbish bin to the right of the picture?ย  Arrgghhh!! I persuaded the organiser to cover it with a tablecloth soon after this photo was taken!

I know there’s probably a lot I could do to improve the look in general – some kind of backdrop would be good as a start.ย  Time to get back on Pinterest I think!

  4. Congrats on the markets, Vicki! Your display looks lovely. I hope you sell lots and lots of soap!

    1. Thanks Jenny! It’s slow but sure at the moment – as long as sales don’t start dropping I’m happy to let it grow slowly ๐Ÿ˜€
