It’s been a bit of an uphill slog but By 10pm last night I had gathered up everything I needed for the market, well mostly. My nice coat hangers have gone walkabouts.
It’s been a while. I’m not a natural sales person but I do enjoy talking to people about knitting. It was the local Steiner May Fayre; the children learn to knit there in year one so quite a few of the children were interested in what I was doing.
It was a lovely day. I wasn’t expecting to sell much which was just as well, although I did cover my costs. That wasn’t the point of today, it was more about having a dress rehearsal/dummy run. So while it would have been nice to sell a cape or two, I got to look with fresh eyes at what I do and I’ve got some ideas as to how to improve.
So now I’m home, tired but positive. Time to take a break.
