Lessons Learnt..............

Sunday and our sales table at the market!! The weather was awful, but there seemed to be plenty of people milling about, trouble was they did not seem to be shopping for handmade craft items.  This market seems to have gone downhill since it was taken over by the local council.  It used to be run by a couple of ladies and to be honest it was much better then attracting quality traders.  I better say no more in case I offend someone, needless to say it was not worth wasting a day standing in a drafty train station for  7 hours.....Lesson Learnt.  ETSY shop to be set up soon.

oh what a shame. stalls are a real gamble it seems - I did a craft fair recently where most of the stall holders made a loss as the organizers charged £30 for a stall and then didnt advertise it, and charged entry to those who did come.... good luck with your etsy shop, your things are lovely I'm sure you'll do great x
