You guys, i had SUCH a fun weekend! Showing at Made on the Left on Sunday, was such a blast! It was a really stormy day (what up Perth?!), and so lots of vendors were telling me that there weren’t as many people as last time – but honestly, i didn’t notice. I just relished the experience of seeing first hand people looking at my patterns. It was awesome. So often I feel like i miss out on interacting with my customers more, since everything we do is online – and it was really cool to be able to really chat to people, and have a laugh, and open up a few patterns to show. Totally worth braving the weather if you ask me :)
Having Chris there to help me was so great. We had such a fun time – and I really don’t think things would have gone so smoothly if i’d been on my own. Thanks Darling!!!
So – as i mentioned last week, this was my first market. As a result, i had literally no idea how one sets up a stall. What does a stall look like? So i ended up googling like crazy for days finding pictures of what other peoples stalls looked like. So i thought i’d share with you what mine looked like! Nothing fancy, and it can definitely be finessed a bit next time – but overall i’m pretty happy with how it all worked!
Thanks so much to everyone who came by and said hi over the day – it made my day to meet so many people who have used my patterns, and read Design Diary!
Oh… and then i went shopping… there were too many cute things, and all the vendors were so nice!!
I got these adorable bunny earrings from Clay and Clasp (I mean come on, BUNNY earrings! i died) – which i adore, and Lucy the designer, was like the sweetest person ever. And i also got this cool necklace made from a vintage drawer handle (but unfortunately the tag doesn’t have the stores name on it, so i can’t link to it – sad face ).
And that is the story of my first market – it was such a good experience, and i feel like i learnt so much! Can’t wait till next time :)
