My very first market was yesterday and it was a resounding success!! Mostly thanks to my awesome, super supportive friends here 🙂
Anywhoo, I spent ages working not only on the things I was going to sell, but the stall itself and all in all I’m pretty happy with it. I’d love to add more levels and display space at some point but as a start, I love the way it turned out.
Excuse the mess under the table but this is my little stall.
The mannequin, who I named Sven, was from a flea market and was looking a little worse for wear when I brought him home, but a bit of decoupage and white wash and he turned into a focal point .. not to mention a talking point – which is always good! I used a basket I found at another flea market (I love my flea markets!) to display some of my crochet bits by stringing some twine across it and pegging my things to the line with mini clothes pegs – I saw that idea on pinterest and fell in love with it… so so cute! And for my card display I stole one of the hubby’s old photo exhibition frames and wrapped the back board thing with kraft paper and used the same washi tape stuff I used for my banner to cover the actual frame (I was too lazy to paint it). I then strung more twine on that and used more mini pegs to display some cards and just popped the rest in a small basket next to the frame.
I also managed to get some labels printed up – which I love, ‘cos they feature Gracie looking smashing 🙂
And here’s another pic with me actually in it! I have to say I was really well-behaved – that’s a bar behind me and I didn’t visit it at all! Or the other two bars that were to my left, for that matter.
