MK Handmade and vintage - day 1
What a fabulous day! So much to be thankful (and grateful) for. The wonderful piece by Sammy Jones was one. Getting the same great stall pitch as last time, facing the new Tiger store, was another. Help from Church friends gave me some breaks from the stall during the day, which really hleped me to stay upbeat and to engage with potential customers while I was there. Some clarity about stock meant that I focused on key sucessful lines - the animals, pocket bags in various styles, two styles of embroidered bags and, of course, bibs. I also had the usual range of low-priced items - bookmarks, pocket purses, phone cases and embroidered purses, plus the new line of Christmas cards. This helped me with my displays, and I think helped the customers to see what was on offer.
