aftermath.......

Am in recovery mode after an amazing weekend with the Niche Markets here in Launceston.
This time around we held it the Friday evening and the Saturday. I have to be honest here, I really did think the Friday evening would be fairly tame and quiet....
OMG... was I wrong!!
Folks started flooding in even before we had finished setting up and they were four deep and lined up out the front door for the four hours we were open!!
Being very lucky to score the spot right next to Sophie of That Vintage, we did not stop and the sales were just incredible!
Saturday the numbers, while not as crazy as Friday, certainly stayed steady through the whole day, sales again were great and by the end.... well the picture tells the story!
This is a few hours from the end of the market (I had one candle left when we packed up!) - and I truly had nothing left to sell! Totally unexpected and amazing!
The other aim for me with this market was to try and get my new wellness business, sanctum out there into the public domain. I had a sheet for folks to sign up for a chance to win a 2 hour spa package - again, didn't realise just how popular this was going to be!! I filled four A4 sheets of paper with peoples names and emails!! Far out!
Now I just have to draw a winner and email everyone with the news!!
What a brilliant weekend.
A big thanks to Liz and the folks at St Giles for organising, a big thanks to the great stallholders who kept me company and a big thanks to everyone who came along and supported us local crafty people!
Might just have a sleep now.......
