Ugh. Yesterday's market was a dismal bust. I must confess to considering not even mentioning the outcome here since my ego is still feeling a little bruised...markets have always gone really well for BahaCoca, and it was quite a shock to pack everything up at the end of yesterday having sold not one single thing. Really. Oh well, you win some you lose some, right? Turns out the market was about 80% 2ndhand goods - which is great and all, but clearly not the target market I'm looking for, and not going to result in great sales where everyone is looking for a 50c bargain. C'est la vie. Of course, I did get heaps of clothes fondling, compliments on the goods and the stall setup, so not all bad. oh, and what seems to be my staple at fairs and markets - many, many grannies staring intently at the hats and booties trying to figure out the pattern and how they were constructed...at least nobody asked me outright to just give them the pattern for free for once!
I have no photos of the day, since I forgot to take the camera, so you'll just have to take my word that using three vintage suitcases and a sundry collection of old wicker baskets works wonders for stall design as well as making things easier to haul to and from the car. Instead, here's this mornings harvest...happy to report these strawberries are now coursing through our digestive systems...and oh, the joy of eating strawberries so flavoursome that the juicy goodness drips down to your elbows! yum.
