Well, thats another Barn Market done and dusted and what a day it was!! Again (to our relief) there was a surplus of people milling around and soaking up the atmosphere. This time the rain stayed away and Mirri and I enjoyed the opportunity of selling from within our new marquee - it was like a little shop in a box. Having fresh air and a little more room (and one table each, instead of sharing) was a bit of a luxury. We again had great days in terms of sales, even though it was hard to keep our mind on the job of selling with so much else to run around and organise. It was definitely less stressful than last time, although setting up marquees was a little time consuming (it was our first time) but something that surely gets better with practise. It was great to be right next to Helen from Tas Fudge and chat and laugh with her throughout the day. She must have thought we were a little bit scatty because we were both in and out of our stall like bee's on a mission!
We're already looking forward to the next one (Saturday 5th June) and got some amazing suggestions from patrons and stallholders about how to gradually make it an even more exciting event. Thank you for everyone's support and a special thanks to our lovely stallholders who presented thier goods so beautifully and are so happy to chat to us throughout the day.
I'd also like to make a special mention of Hope and Me in the quadrant in Launceston who is a new stockist of mine. If you are in Launceston, make sure you pop in because its a very sweet little shop with a lot of very tempting goods on offer. Lindi has come back for her second order and my products are selling well for her which makes me one very happy little pili pala (butterfly). Check out some photos of her beautiful store.
