Well once again, many apologies for being completely AWOL around these parts lately but it is for good reason I promise - I have FINALLY got the market stall up and running!!! YAY!
For a first attempt it wasn't great, being a newbie I was last on the list to be allocated a pitch and what an awful one it was too! It was right down the end of the market where very few people venture and then it was outside a builders hoarding which took up half the pavement so anyone stopping at the stall soon got shuffled along by other pedestrians. That, mixed in with the freezing conditions and people's lack of spending (according to other traders so wasn't just me thankfully!) didn't make for a very profitable day.
But all is not lost, we got a helluva lot of interest and some great feedback and I have learnt so much already from Day 1 and I am determined to pick up, dust off and carry on.
Unfortunately I turned up this weekend and so did every other trader in the area so unfortunately I didn't manage to get a pitch, however I will be back on the 19th to give it another go so fingers crossed...
Bye for now x
