Friday Market

Well, this last Friday's market was a total disaster.  Hardly any customers, and it poured (I'm talking cats and dogs here folks) three times.  I barely made enough to cover the artisan bread and cookies I purchased.  I keep thinking I should switch to selling baking - yeah right!!!  Next Friday is our July 1st holiday, so I am hoping that sales will be a bit better.

My booth is fairly wind resistant now though - not a stiff wind though, more like breeze resistant.  Although you can't see it from the picture, the T-bars and some of the necklace busts are clamped down with C-clamps to the open backed risers, and the others have weights clipped onto the back of them.  I need to bring something to raise the backs of the black trays up a bit though, so it is easier for shoppers to browse - not that we had many shoppers!  The other thing I am wanting is to purchase a large roll up type sign for the back of the booth.  The little one I have is just too small, and I am always afraid of it getting bent.  A plasticized canvas type one could be rolled up and kept in a bag.

Have a great weekend!

I HATE rainy shows. I didn't do but one outdoor show last year and am doing none this year, thankfully.
