Farmers Market #2

In Uncategorized on July 28, 2008 at 4:13 pm

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.

  1. Sorry to hear about your market…hopefully this weekend will be better for you. So you really are going to delve into the craft fair thing? I have been thinking about it, however, it scares me! There is one in the town over that I just might try out.

  2. Yep, I’m going to try out the craft fairs…we’ll see how they end up going though, I’m not really sure what to expect as a seller. I’ve been to quite a few as a buyer, and I love them (esspecially when they have tea houses) so I’m hoping it will be just as good! You should try at least one, I think. Othewise you’ll never know what you’re missing (good or bad).

  3. Oh, I can so relate. Sorry to hear, but don’t give up. Sometimes there is no rhyme or reason why those things don’t work out. Try, try again, girl!

  4. Thanks for the encouragement! It’s always nice to hear I’m not the only one this has happened too (:
