The idea was both exciting and daunting - oh I have had experience with selling things (I used to run the bookshop at the Labour Party taking things to all their conferences etc but that was a few years ago and I wasn't sure how my cards and notebooks would be received. I agreed and then had to decide what items would be suitable - I wanted them to notice my own designs and price them competitively enough that people would like to buy them!

So, the day came and boy what a scorcher as some people would say - hottest day of the year so far! I had got all the stuff ready as time would be tight - so loaded the car and we were off! Thankfully the traffic was brilliant and we got there in good time to set up.
Thanks to my daughter and her boyfriend who helped set it up!
|Handmade Cards Shop Cards and gifts|
Cards, gifts and decorations ready so would we get any customers given that it was Wimbledon Ladies' final and other sporting events going on? Luckily it was really well attended and quite a few people made their way to the stall - next time I must make sure we maybe have a gazebo or something as the sun was so hot! (and maybe even sell drinks - soft ones of course)!
I was also chuffed that people also liked my other products (not just cards but my notebooks (being added to my website soon) too....
