Elated. Excited. Exhausted. That sums up my weekend. Just elated that Handmade Market was such a huge success, despite my lack of sewing lately due to the demand of Shop Handmade & orders, i had such a sparse stall but boy did i have a big fabric sale. I'm so excited about Christmas, the potential is huge, i'll start sewing in the school holidays, purely for Christmas markets!! Exhausted as quite frankly, 10 hours of market trade & the set up, pack up, unpack & repack twice - oh yes, TWICE as i had to repack the car this afternoon with all the stock from Gifts Created, Almond Tree Frames, Little Slave & props pinched from the Shop for the Handmade Market . . . coming soon to Shop Handmade . . . The Red Thread - as if i couldn't resist a boy Ooshka for my son which he bought before Mathilda's Market ever started today, i have all Lisa's stock in the car. Hmmmm . . . can i resist?? Why yes i should as i do have the patterns & bought extra Ooshka faces for my daughters as a school holiday project.
If you do markets, i can not encourage you enough to do a blog too. I have the most lovely customers say they read my blog, wish they had found my Revolve finds first & the nicest comment you can ever get "oh, you are just like your blog in real life". Who has time to be fake anyway??
PS Sorry no images from Handmade Market, the fact i don't have time to go to the bathroom during that event clearly shows i don't have time for happy snaps. Check out the Handmade website for all the goodness. Actually don't, i look huge!! I'm off to the treadmill as clearly i have stock to make & weight to lose before the next Handmade Market, i wonder if i could hand stitch while i run, hmmmmm . . .
