Revamped stall

We had a bit more time to work on the stall Friday so had a go at tarting it up a bit. We now have 3 tables, one at the front with the cheaper range, behind that it is mainly bowls and one to the left in the picture is the fancy arty, more expensive stuff. Probably won't sell a lot of the fancy stuff but it is definitely an attention getter. It looks as good as we are likely to get it for a temporary stall but if we do get it on a more permanent basis we'll go to town with some shelves and peg boards etc. Plenty of interest and some sales. Also offers of wood to collect.

Market stall

I have been given a trial in a market for free for 10 days and had the first two this weekend. Went well, not a millionaire yet but covered my costs. The traders and management are friendly and helpful as well which is good.

Booth is 10' x 10' square and right by the main entrance. Looks like this at the moment though hopefully we can use the time to practice our layout and design

The lass is my boss pyrographing a dibber. I am able to use my mini lathe there which is good as it attracts attention and bad as I have to clear up afterward
