Gin in Teacups Stall

Well what a day I had doing a stall at the Gin in Teacups craft market yesterday! I had a great time, met loads of other lovely crafters and made a few sales too, yippeeee! It was good to get out and speak to people and see which items of mine were attracting the most attention. Selling online all the time can be a bit faceless and you don't always get feedback. It was also good to have a look around and see what crafts other people were doing too. I even ended up buying some lovely sweet chilli jam and some tomato and ginger jam which is absolutely delicious!

Here is some photos of my stall. I had loads of stuff, so much I couldn't even fit it all on the table! A lot more stuff than when I did my first stall 2 years ago anyway (see my last post). So I guess I better get my wee faerie bum into gear and do lots more crafts fares this summer and hopefully sell lots more stuff!

This picture was given to me by one of my younger fans who had been coming over to look at my Mario range. He says it's a new design I should work on, how sweet!

Well I guess I'd better look into doing some more stalls this summer and also getting a lot more of these Nomi Faerie goodies up on my Etsy page. Plus there is the crafty area to sort out, it's total chaos here after this week. A faerie's work is never done it seems...

Going to Market!

The last few weeks have been extremely busy as I prepare to do a stall for this event on Sunday. Very exciting as I've not done a stall for nearly 2 years and that was when I was first starting out with The Nomi Faerie. I think I have come a long way since then and have a lot more stuff to display than I did before. It's also going to be good to get out on the field and speak to potential buyers too rather than just doing everything online.

I didn't realise just how much work I would have to do for this stall. As it has been so long and I've got lots of new stock, I'm not only having to do lots of packaging but also make lots of little display units for all my different items. I'm also trying to make a few extras of my best selling stuff like my Mighty Boosh and Alice in Wonderland ranges, you never know it may give me a few extra sales on the day. I found a picture from when I did my first stall at West Fest nearly 2 years ago. As you can see from the photo I am 6 months pregnant at the time!

So anyway I'd best get back to it. Big list of things to do today and then if I have time hoping to set up a practice stall ahead of tomorrow. I keep looking at that old photo above and thinking I can do much better this time! I'll post some photos after the event tomorrow and you can decide for yourselves. Wish me luck and if anyone in the Dundee area wants to come down and say hello, it would be great to meet you!
