So, its only been forever that I've said I was going to have a market stall. My new years resolution was to have a stall, and I finally did it. If anyone is from the Central Coast, you will probably be familiar with the Shelly Beach Markets. They are on the last Saturday of the month, I've done a few this year so far with the next one being next Saturday 25th July. My dear friend Larissa from Sugar Plum Tart and I have been going together and it has been great finally selling our hand made creations.
I found this amazing vintage sheet a little while ago, brand new/old never opened. I love how bright and colourful my stall is, you should see the kids eyes light up when they walk past, love it.
I finally have started selling my felt cakes, how long ago did I make these? 5 years maybe.
I've also sold loads of my little Russian dolls. And I went on a hair clip making frenzy.
And all my new crochet toys. It's funny that each market is different, I will sell loads of one thing and the next market I sell none.
It's all a good learning experience and I will try and make new things for each market to try and mix it up a bit. I also get bored making the same thing over and over. I have also found pricing to be hard as I don't like to under price myself as I put a lot of time into making everything, but I also want people to want to buy them too.
So if you are on the Central Coast and around the North end of the Coast, it's a great day out. Also Long Jetty is 5 mins up the road from the Market. It has really become a great little hub with loads of great shops and cafes, definitely a great day out if you are coming up from Sydney.
