I’m exhausted. Last night I was up until midnight sewing. I found out yesterday that there’s an open air market happening in town…tomorrow. I decided to go for it even though it’s verrry short notice, there’s still a few bags in my store I can take down and then I thought if I put the pedal to the metal I could sew some more. I’m only bringing a small, square card table, so I don’t need to worry about filling up a long one.
I found out about the market at 4 yesterday evening, emailed the coordinator and asked if registration was still being accepted, sprinted home and sewed up three big bags. I’m calling them “big bags” since they are a bit bigger than my Kiki Bags and I haven’t come up with a name for them yet. On top of this I cut out six Zippies which I was going to sew tonight and then get whatever I could get done on Saturday morning…but then I started thinking that I should have more big bags since they’ll bring in more money. The Zippies are just an “afterthought purchase” or something for the younger kids. So I’ll be sewing, hopefully, three more big bags tonight. That’ll bring my list to:
- Six Big Bags
- 10 Zippies
- 8 Kitty Bags
- 5 Sets of Tags
- Seven Boxes
Hopefully this is enough. If I happen to sell everything (pretty please!) I’ll just pack it up and go home early. If not, at least I’ll learn which of my items are more popular, which ones sell, and I’ll get input from the buyers as to what they’d like to see in the bags.
Cross your fingers! I’ll be posting more about my experience as well as pictures soon!
