So I Just Jumped Right In

And I got to tell you, it was ok. I didn't even throw up!

How is that for an intro? The market went really well. I was really happy with how the stand looked. Mum painted the sign up for me and did a great job. I had the stuff on the table as my samples and the stuff on the stand was for sale. I think considering that I had the least stock there that I did really well. I sold most of the stuff on the stand and got quite a few orders too. The Russian doll dress and red capes were hot item as were the fish pants. I discovered the brighter stuff wasn't really a seller for the boys so I know for next time. The customers were just lovely too, which was great. The fantastic Lynda bought me caffeine at just the right time, and Liesl came to see us too and even bought some pants for Argy and Bargy. All in all, a great day. The next one is in March, just enough time to recover I think. I am hoping to have a few more items for sale next time, especially for the little munchkins. So I have lots of sewing to do now so Glen is being roped in as my assistant since Mum went back home today. He also did a great job helping me out on the day and is also my chief stamper. It is a bit of a team sport here.

And of course the red capes were popular, if I had been there I would have been demanding one in my size too!

I have been hanging out to hear your market recap! I cannot believe you managed all that sewing by yourself, you are so amazing.
I too am not surprised you sold out, your designs and fabric choices are so beautiful and interesting, not like anything I have seen before. COngratulations.

Well done - you did it. I am so pleased that you sold nearly everything - its great to see hard work pay off so to speak. And your designs are lovely, why wouldnt they walk out the door - not surprised at all. Here's to the next one.

Oh Cindy-pops, it looks fantastic. I feel proud. And I had nothing to do with it. Awesome. Wish I could have come and seen you, though Tiny would have wondered where her next meal ticket was coming from, and the Doctor would have more than just tantied.

LOVE that your stall went off - that's fab news. Love the signage.
