Well it came and went in the blink of an eye. After weeks of preparation, (not to mention money spent) getting ready for my first indoor show it was very disappointing to say the least.
Carmen and I were up at the crack of dawn, the car was already loaded and off we went. Finally found the spot we needed to unload everything from the car onto large trolleys that were uploaded by a huge goods lift. Carmen was supposed to be my minion for the day, but she just bossed me around as usual and ate all the babies (I’ll get to that shortly).
Despite the rather trippy psychedelic carpet it was a great venue. Plenty of room between stalls and easy to get around especially if you were pushing a pram………I’m getting to that.
So I didn’t realise that the market I was part of was combining with a baby market. Most of the stalls were catering for mothers and babies, hence the prams, so they were not that interested in buying handmade jewellery. More interested in paying $50.00 for a pair of imported pyjamas for a 2 month old bub. Oh well, live and learn I guess.
But we did see some gorgeous babies and Carmen had to stop all the prams and play with them. (minions aren’t supposed to do that I’m told).
And I did sell a few gift tags and met some lovely people.
This lovely lady Vanaja came up to my stall and introduced herself and told me she reads my blog which was a lovely surprise. Here we are in front of her jewellery stall. Vanaja has only recently started making jewellery and blogging, her blog is called Reyi Designs.
As I said it was disappointing but a learning experience none the less.
On to the next project…….haven’t quite worked out what that will be just yet!
