Well, the trip to the Farmers Market this week was quite different than the last weekend…actually, it was the complete opposite. If It hadn’t been for my husbands Grandma coming around, I wouldn’t have sold a single thing! After all my preparation and getting up super early on Saturday, it was really dissapointing. It would have been even worse if I had been the only one that wasnt’ getting much response from buyers, but all the other stalls were saying it was a slow day for them as well.
I’ll be going back next weekend since several people mentioned they thought it would be a good week for sales. The Market will be having more live entertainment and refreshments since it will be BC’s 150th Birthday. It’s supposed to be a huge event so hopefully that will lead to more customers.
I was also talking to one of the other girls there and she mentioned a few craft fairs coming up that were known for being huge successes. I’ll be going to several of those this winter, I can’t wait! I’ve never been to a craft fair as a vendor before and I’m really excited to be involved a bit more!
Over all, the Farmers Market this week was a learning experience. I tried to stay positive, after all, it’s only my second one! And I will be going back, I realize it isn’t a reflection on my work…but it’s still a bit hard not to be discouraged.
