As promised, more about the Crafty Market I sold at last Sunday!
This was my first market, and I was incredibly nervous. I spent all week before the big day preparing, testing out the setup for my booth, etc. On Saturday evening I was still busy with it! In the end, I got everything to look the way I wanted it to though, and I was ready for the market.
A few pictures of me setting up my booth. Setting up took foreverrrr. I expected it to be much faster!
The finished result! What do you think? Very pink, right?
Chatting with Maartje from Mamutopia who I shared a booth with. Our stuff looked so great together! It really is the same style but totally different items, which I think makes us perfect booth-sharers! Besides, we Maartjes gotta stick together.
Maartje and her cuteness! My mom kept calling her "other Maartje", teehee.
That's my mom in the orange top! My enthusiasm about the market made her decide to go with me, which was nice for various reasons: 1. She's nice company, 2. A shop assistant is always nice 3. We could go by car! It was car free sunday in various cities in the country, but that wouldn't start until 10 am, and we had to be there by then to start setting up anyway, so there was no problem at all.
And last but not least, my customers! They were all great! I got such great reactions, people kept ooohing and aaahing over how cute everything was, and how they couldn't choose. A nice ego booster!
The funniest reactions I got though were by kids:
A little girl, who can't have been more than 4 years old:
"Mom can I have these?"
"No honey, those are earrings, and you don't have pierced ears."
"Oh? *very cute sad face*
She seemed very dissapoined (and surprised!) to hear that here ears weren't pierced. So cute.
And another one, from a few girls who didn't have enough money at the moment to buy what they wanted:
"Will you be at this market again next year?"
Selling in person is so much more fun than selling online! Maybe I should bring back the dream of having my own B&M store some day?
P.S. Those last 2 pictures are by Katinka, who organized the market. She did a fantastic job!
