Yesterday was my first time holding a market stall and it was definitely an experience that I will remember for a very long time !
It was at the Brixton Makers Market which is held once a month.
Yesterday was an awfully cold day, however, and it did not start very well for me because I did not have the right shoes on for the temperature. My feet literally froze by the time my husband so kindly brought me a pair of more suitable trainers to wear.
The weather meant that less people came out and the ones who did probably were still recovering from the holidays spending to be interested in buying. Most of the traders seemed to have a slow day, and I probably had one of the slowest of all, but I came out of this feeling very positive.
First of all, I got to speak with other more experienced traders who gave me advice about how to set up my stall and my displays, I did give out quite a few business cards and people seemed quite positive about my products.
All in all, it was a tiring day but it was a great experience and I will be back on 11th February for the Valentine's Day Special !
