Market Day week 3 and 4

Week 3 picture (my best week so far)

I write about my market for those of you who are considering to have a stall of your own.

There are alot of things to consider, presentation playing a very major role.

Transportation of your goods.

The weather plays another major role, unless you are selling indoors.

Plan ahead, windy conditions saw the purchase of occa straps and big clips to secure my goods (sort of look like this but plastic), wet weather saw the need for water proof covers.

Too many small stands can take up precious room in your transport vehicle and on your stall table.

Your timely arrival at the market is also important, arriving late may see you in a long cue of stall holders, wasting valuable time from the setting up of your stall.

A small float of coin and note's, clearly marked pricing, the wearing of your product if applicable, a companion, be prepared to answer all questions about your items, such as the materials used, "can you make more, how long will it take, will you be here next week?"
A nice bright table cover.

A thermos of hot coffee, food and drink.

Get to know the rules of the market you are selling in.

A positive and friendly approach.

Week 4 picture, and my daughter Casey, she was a great help. (Another good week, but it did rain. Week 3 still the best.)
