No longer a market virgin!

Well, I spent my week panicking about the market, torching up as much stock as I could and packing all the things I thought I might need...... To sell two (2) things only for the whole day.

I had to get up very early, drive into the city (which scares me a LOT because Sydney is like a rabbit warren) get set up, wait all day for a sale, repack the car and drive home in a busy traffic period. I don't want to sound like I am whinging, because the absolutely lovely and talented Vanessa Cabrera ( showed the way into town, helped me set up, lent me some of the stuff I needed for display and generally lent a convenient shoulder. I was also lucky enough to be paired with Yunita ( who was so good about helping the dodgy-arsed one and provide good company for the day.

I did manage to sell one of my highly experimental necklace pieces for a whopping $250 (biggest sale that I have ever had) to a lady that just loved it and she was saying she only collected unique pieces. Thank goodness I decided to take it to fill some space on my emptyish part of the table. I felt happy about the sale and thank goodness that covered all the stall expenses too, so the day was not a total waste.

Do I want to do a market again in town.......... the answer is quite a resounding "NO"

Hmmmmm, thinking I should sort out my Etsy store to pay for my glass purchasing habits rather than take the market route.


  1. Congrats on the big sale Nat! I guess that made the day not feel like a total waste. I'm surprised you didn't sell more! :( Any interest??

  2. Lots of people looking at the honey dippers about all. There was a really good turn out, but WAY too much hassle for the return. I think I am just not a market going type.... too lazy ;-)
