A couple of weeks ago I had my first craft stall, selling a selection of my photo prints and greeting cards. The event was called the Artisans in the Palm House, and had been going on for three days. The Palm House, where I was located, is such a stunning building, and it was an honour to placed inside.
I had a wonderful day meeting fellow makers and customers. This being my first time ever having a craft stall, I was super nervous! I had actually been preparing for it for some time, and with a couple of weeks to go I ended up making a ‘mock stall’ in my parent’s dining room, where I was able to play around with the display. All the things that I sold during the day, are available on my Etsy shop. I was very lucky to have my Mum by my side, and she was the perfect sub-team leader!
When preparing for this craft stall, I must have spent in total, hours looking around Pinterest and found some great ideas and DIY tutorials. Some of the display stands I actually made myself, and had a friend of the family who is exceptionally talented with wood, make two wooden stands for my stall. I am in the process of writing up a tutorial to show you how I made my display stands.
Overall, I had a wonderful day and would love to have another stall again – I will keep you posted for any stalls I will be doing in 2017! You can also see the items I sold over on my Etsy shop here.
