Heeeello! :) I hope you were having a fantastic weekend! Mine was super, because my mama has been here and I have been selling my handmade things at a market. :) To see my past two markets where I had a booth, click here to see older blog posts. :)
On Saturday there was a little market on an island in Potsdam and I was having a booth and was there all afternoon. At first, it was quite empty, but later, many people came and bought my handmade things. :) As you might already know, I love to decorate and I had lots of fun preparing my booth and making everything look pretty.
I took with me about 160 different items and I was soooo flattered by all the amazing compliments that I got, soooo heartwarming!!! What is more, I even sold way more items that I had expected and I was so proud!
My mother and Flo supported me all day, I’m so thankful for that!
This afternoon was lots of fun and I had a lot of luck that the sun came out and people came to visit this little market.
Some people payed me compliments because of my outfit matching my handmade banner, but I swear that this was unintentionally. :)
Among other things, I sold pot holders, dribble bibs, gift bags for Christmas, hair bows, pouches and hand-painted mugs.
Here’s a part of my table with all the colorful items. :) A few people didn’t want to believe me that I made all those things myself and were so impressed by the diversity, choice of colors and patterns and by all the ideas behind the products! Sooo flattering! Two people even asked me if I had employers who help me sewing all those things. :D
My handmade banner and the apple bunting.
I also sold tobacco pouches, pillow cases, brooches and Christmas stockings.
This is my pretty decor I made at the opening of DaWanda’s showroom last week, it was perfect for my booth. :)
Handmade felt brooches and pouches.
Such a nice day and such a good experience! :)
Have you ever sold anything handmade at a market? :) So much fun!
Enjoy your Sunday evening!
