3-sided market stall pics

Pictures from today's North Melbourne Market! Can I start by saying that if someone says to you 'would you like to share a table in the middle of a room?' that should be a signal that your stall will have 3 sides. And no space for you to stand.

Side 1: the boxes! and a couple of new art prints! Will be available at Mathilda's Market (14th March, Hawthorn) and online soon.

I didn't quite realise how tricky my stall would be to organise. I had to arrange everything so that people could walk around the whole table- my early plans of sitting next to the table were quickly thrown away and I just ended up standing next to the table with the customers, trying to look official (rather than behind it as I normally would).

Side 2: cards & gift tags (Happy Flower card is so cute framed!) There is a new card & gift tag design coming...

I met so many lovely people at the market today, including MissyMinzy (who does super lovely illustrations and is opening a shop soon I hope!), Celeste from Little Waltz, and lots of other people... I even stole a cookie from Shannon went she went for a quick break. Hooray!

Side 3: I don't have much Pocket Carnival signage, so I whipped up that little framed 8x10 last night, so colourful!

I was happy with my wooden box display, and will try to list all the new products online pronto!

Also, mailing list! I have a mailing list, where I send out news & sales information, if you'd like to be added please either use my contact form or email me: penny@pocketcarnival.com.au

Hooray!

I so wanted to visit you and introduce myself but I was located in the Ballroom and couldn't move. I understand a little what you went through. I had a card size table and was squashed between to big tables. Anyway I hope it went well for you.
(report of my market adventure will be up on my blog later).

It was lovely to meet you, hope you had a fantastic day at the markets today! Your stall looked fab, and I loved the fact that you could approach it from 3 sides.

How did it go? I saw your stall briefly, but was chasing 4 year old around.. and it was crowded! But stall looked great. How were sales? I thought it looked busy, but spoke to someone else with a stall there, they were pretty unhappy with turnout and sales.

Your shelves look particularly fabulous! I've always had fantastic experiences at the thread den market, hope this hasn't gone the same way as many other markets, squishing too many people in and not looking after the crafters!

It was lovely to meet you too! It's actually not a bad idea to have your stall to being seen from 3 sides imo. The chances of being exposed is higher than the other stalls. Probably the one thing to concern is you have to stand there for 4 hours or so.

You did well though! Hope you had a good sales on that day! All the best again on the next market Penny :)
