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!

Inspiration Fridays – “Who did you notice more?”

Something I have kept in mind ever since deciding to do my first market stall was to stand out.

I already have quite bright coloured prints but it is quite a challenge coming up with a way to show them off properly .

Market Display test idea

I created these signs using my style of watercolours and ink pen. I found some giant pegs to attach them to the crates as I wanted it to be quickly interchangeable if needed.

I also have some cute miniature easels to display framed prints. Can’t wait to show them off once I find the right frames. Frames are really hard to find that have an easy hanging system!

Next to get sorted are my specialty prints – prints with a little extra for the little ones to hopefully catch their attention and interest. All should be revealed on the weekend!

I want to be the bird on the wire by themselves! What are you doing to be different?
