Recap for the second Le Boulevard Boutique market 23.02.2014

Last Sunday I had my second Le Boulevard Boutique Market at the Westwaters Entertainment Complex in Caroline Springs.
I was a little nervous as I had to go by myself and carry all my stuff!
I met some very nice stall holders but ultimately I didn’t make any sales from the general public. It really made me think whether my products are worth pursuing.
I would like to try other markets but I want to take a step back and get into creating a bit more; I’ve already got some great ideas!

What makes you take a step back to re-evaluate things?

Upcoming Market – 2nd Visit to Le Boulevard Boutique Market

I have another market coming up!
I have researched a few different ones but I am not wanting to be at a different market every weekend. I’d like to pick special markets where people can come to meet me and my products. I am very excited to meet new people and hopefully some who went last time!

Upcoming Christmas Markets

Oh I’m so excited – I have two markets leading up to Christmas

Sunday November 24th 2013 – Westwaters Entertainment Complex Free Market Day

I love this idea – allowing stall holders a free table to sell their wares. Anything I make will be a profit!
I am adding special glow in the dark prints not listed on the online stores 🙂

Market day

Saturday December 7th 2013 – Market@235, Hoppers Crossing Uniting Church

Oh my this will be hard – Market starts at 8am to finish at 12pm, just in time for lunch 🙂 I have never been to this market also and it is closer to home. I am loving the prospect of showing what I can make to new people.

My Amazing First Market – Leboulevard Boutique Market 13 October 2013

Wow. What a first market to attend. It was fantastic.
I had no idea what to expect- Will I sell out of everything? Did I take too much stock? Too little stock? What if nobody buys anything?
I was stressed out and it was only 8.30am!

But I stuck to my plan – say hello to everybody and be as friendly as possible. I got some excellent comments and some people were amazed that the pictures were originally hand drawn !

There were 50 stalls in all and each one had fantastic products and awesome stall setup – I really learnt a lot from watching them setup.

Now I have to think what I will do differently for the next market I go to. The glow in the dark prints surprised everyone so perhaps I could make a bigger deal out of them and have an example box to show what it will look like.
Oh the possibilities!
