Further to my last post, I thought I had better update you on how my first stall went...
It was fantastic, and I had a ball!
I was worried about how it would all look and how it would be received, and I had the odd 'OMG what am I doing, what have I got myself into' moment over the days leading up to it, but I knew I just had to get out there and do it...I am staring down the barrel of a BIG birthday later this year which I am not so thrilled about, but as I get older I am finding the confidence to do things I would never have done 5 or 10 years ago, even 2 years ago, and for that I am very pleased :) I guess it takes a while for some of us to figure out if you don't do it now, you may never get to do it.
I jumped way outside of my comfort zone and I lived to tell the tale, a little bit wiser to boot. I am very happy with that :)
Anyway, here are some photos of the day...
|Me and my helper girl...she was very excited that Mummy and her were running a 'shop'!|
The kids loved it, but to be fair they loved the face painting, the donkey rides, the lucky dips and the bouncy castle the best ;)
I sold 4 items - the 'Paris' cushion, which I absolutely loved and plan on making more very soon; the small round white side table; the little grey twig basket and a mirror.
I got one confirmed upholstery job and numerous other enquiries which I will follow up on over the next couple of weeks.
I thoroughly enjoyed it and am looking forward to doing it again in a few weeks. Next time I won't be nervous, just very very excited!
