|My new marquee - so much space!|
I was up super early (well 5.45 am) and out the door at 6.15 am. Had packed the car, my snacks and lunch the night before so it was pretty easy to just get up, dress and go. I even made my breakfast the night before.
|My new bigger table (the one to the side is what I usually use)|
I was all set up with time to spare by 7.50am. The market started at 8am. I thought that was rather early but who am I to question the experts! There was prediction of showers throughout the day and I think there was a few but otherwise it was glorious sunshine most of the day. There was amazing stallholders, creators, designs and foodies. So much to choose from. It is hard not to be overwhelmed by the wonderful displays of handmade.
|Lots of new dresses|
BUT people just weren't buying. There were plenty of people wandering around but just not buying.
Now I'm not sure if I should go back in December. Perhaps most people were scoping for Christmas but not buying? But it just doesn't make financial sense for me when I didn't even sell enough to cover my market fee. And that isn't even factoring in the cost of materials plus the better part of day away from my family, petrol etc.
What do you think?
