Well what a lovely morning Saturday was! 22 fantastic stalls with a stunning range of high quality handmade and vintage items. As always, I had many customers comment to me about how impressed they were with the stalls there – always lovely to hear! I’ve attached lots of photos to show a selection of items that were for sale.
A couple of notes from the feedback (and things I’ve thought of too). Firstly, some stallholders commented on how nice it is to see other stallholders interacting with customers as they walked round – it really builds a lovely friendly atmosphere which is great and actually these stallholders certainly seemed to be making lots of sales! Definitely a good tip – having a chat with customers and having a big smile on your face is always a winner!
Secondly, stallholders commented on how effective they thought it was for me to spend time at the market handing out flyers and sending customers over. My lovely hubby also helped on Saturday so I could spend a bit more time in the hall with everyone. It was suggested that we have more people handing out flyers and I totally agree. I always ask for volunteers to help but only a couple of people have ever offered. Maybe it’s the cold weather..! If you are ever (as a customer or stallholder) able to spare half an hour or so to help stand at the market handing out flyers it would be massively appreciated! There’ll be a cuppa and cake waiting for you on your return! 😉
There were an extra 5 signs out on the roads this month (10 lamppost signs plus 3 A boards) as well as the banner. When I get the next batch of flyers printed, I’ll also add a map to the back. Unfortunately lots of the signs were damaged by the storm a few days beforehand so I’ll do my best to replace as many as I can this month. 1000s more flyers to give out to schools too. If anyone knows of any clubs etc that I could deliver some flyers to as well that would be really helpful, thank you!
Well I’ll see you next month – Sat 25th March at the Working Men’s Club 9am-1pm
