Ok so it was my big day on Saturday I have been building up to this day for a few months now. I had been beavering away building websites, cutting and sticking, and sewing like a lunatic. The big day dawned and I was very nervous as I had not yet had a sale and was feeling a little, shall we say pessimistic about the whole business experience thus far! Anyhoo we tootled off having previously been given dimensions of the stall we would have we had a trial run as suggested and had a layout in mind. I had also worked hard and created a large sign advertising my little site that I was quite proud of. We arrived and unpacked only to find that the stall was about half the size we were expecting and I was also sharing it with a friend. EEEkkk was not expecting that! So we had to suck it up and quickly re-design how we were going to display our wares and to be honest despite the initial panic we rose to the challenge. So an hour later the stall was set and we had quick refreshment break before the hoards descended.............. we waited, .......... and we waited. Alas, they did not come and after about an hour and a half I decided that we needed to make the best of a bad situation and handed out as many leaflets as I could, I even handed them out to the other stall holders! However, by the end of the day I had sold 5 fabric brooches and three of those were to other stall holders, so I at least made my money back for the price of the stall and may also have a few leads from the leaflets. So my big day did not go to plan, ho hum so it is back to the drawing board.
