Marketing 101

The market on Saturday went really well. It was the first time I had tried to sell any of my own work to the general public, so it was quite a nerve-wracking experience, but also great fun and gave me lots of food for thought.

I will definitely expand the range of products that I have for sale, and make sure there is a good spread of prices too. Greetings cards and mugs went down well, and my mugs and jugs designs seemed to be the most popular.

Here’s a few photos of the stall (from when it wasn’t raining…)
