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?
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!
Were any of you there? I would love to hear your feedback!
Hello everyone – Just thought I would update about the market I will be appearing at in October – just over 1 month away!
