Well, I have to say that I'm a little disappointed about my market stall on Sunday. I don't really understand what it is about people that makes them not appreciate your hardwork and feel you should be paid reasonably for it. To me it seems that we have become such a throw away society and are used to purchasing low quality, cheap items imported from countries where they are paid an absolute pittance for their hardwork, that we no longer are able to recognise the value of people's creativity and craftsmanship.
I don't know if it was just the wrong venue for me, or if people just really don't have the money to spend. I found everyone to be friendly, and seemed to love my products, but when they saw what I was asking for them, they turned and walked away. Only one person commented on just how much work she could see had gone into some of my things.
It can be very disheartening. And also a little humiliating. For those of you that have very successful market stalls, could you share some advice? I would love to hear your tips on a successful stall.
I hope everyones weekend was a little better than mine!
