(honestly! don't let this picture fool you, i was giving owen the eye.. he kept trying to jump in front of the camera. haha)
for a first market, i think i did fairly well! it was in a smaller location, but we had 2 rooms. i loved the room i was in. and it was so fun to meet other vendors. i'm definitely inspired to do more markets, that's for sure! i had so many lovely comments from customers and browsers.
i know that as i become more practiced at markets, my table will be tweaked... but i'm really pleased with how it looked.
i had so many friends help me and encourage me! i feel like one very lucky girl. my knit night girls has lots of tips and advice on display, ... and actually a fair amount of the items were designed by jane richmond! i honestly love every. one. of her patterns, and she's graciously given me permission to sell from them! yippee!!
and i have to give a big thank you to mandy of sugar + candy for helping me with the banner and apron. i absolutely looove how it turned out! i think it looks great!
i so enjoyed this experience so very much! i had to re-create my shop at home. hahaa seriously. i did.
this is really a room where i feel inspired in!
and now on my to-do list? re-open the etsy shop! no excuses now, i'm inspired, and excited! though now that i feel like i've got a shop here at home, maybe i should just hold an open house :) i actually do have something in mind, promotion wise for facebook fans of nook! so if you haven't "liked" nook yet on facebook, it's a good time to do so!
of course, there's also christmas knitting! it's less than 3 weeks away now! yikes! good thing we're doing a low key gifting this year :) of course, my list is still long :) but isn't that part of the fun of chrsitmas? the crazy craft sessions?!
a big thank you to everyone who supported me this past weekend! not only in purchases, and in set up, but also in your words of encouragement and cheers. honestly, such a fun experience for me! also a big thank you to my hubs, and little man... they came and helped me set up and take down... what troopers!
have you ever done a market? what were your experiences? thoughts? i'd love to chat! xo
