I'm back...it just took me a while to catch my breath. Turns out, a full day craft market on my own after 4 hours' sleep whilst I'm up to the eyeballs with the flu (and numerous medications to counteract the worst symptoms of it) is not altogether the smartest plan. Add in an 80 minutes drive each way and I was over it all a bit by Sunday night. Funny that.
The market itself was not bad - a lovely venue (in the enormous Function room at Hamilton's Casino - smack in the centre of town. Inside!!!!) and well organised, I think it will do really well once people hear of it - Sunday was the first one, so it's not had much chance to gain a presence yet. As a result it was a little quiet on the shoppers and sales front, but worth the trip. I'll be back next month!
I had a primo spot right as people walked in the door, but I think my stall is looking a little overcrowded (not helped by my leaving the hat display stand at home - have I shared that here? D whipped it up for me!) so I need to figure out what I can pare back...somewhat ironic since my main motivation for doing the markets at the moment is to move the BahaCoca stock that is threatening to take over my life!(even if I do keep coming up with new things to make and sell! oops)
