What I learned my first Market Day

It takes longer to set up than it does to take down.  Price everything!  Wind is NOT my friend!  Booth design is very important to engage market goers.  Don’t drink coffee when your booth is far away from the bathrooms.
It was a beautiful day, 75* but a bit gusty. I brought weights for my tent, but not enough. My matted items on easels were everywhere. The big framed pieces stayed secure.

Traffic was good but so many people just walked past. I set up to create a little store, walk in! See what’s here!  I realized an hour in that’s not what shoppers want to do. They want to walk by and see what you have. If the go in, “they might get noticed, spoken to, trapped).

Next week I’m setting up full frontal!!  Everything out there for the public to see at a glance!

I’m sure I will do better next week.  Better placement, nice matching easels, product priced and better signage.

I’m excited to try again!
