Last Sunday I took all my Mamutopia stuff to the Craftymarkt in Amsterdam. I had a great time: lovely weather (I even needed some sunscreen...yes, in september!), sharing a booth with Maartje from Tizzalicious, nice comments and meeting other sellers.
The only thing......my sales....they were nowhere to be found! Of course I did sell some of my products, but not as much as I hoped, or expected. It also wasn't that busy, although Tizzalicious did extremely well (and I'm really happy for her, I think I'm gonna be her assistent!). I don't know why, maybe it was just bad luck. Of course it makes you think about your work: is it stupid, too expensive, or bad looking? I got slightly worried, but on the other hand, the fairs I attended so far all went pretty well. So I try not to think or worry too much about it. In two weeks there's another craft fair...we'll see what happens there!
Apart from the sales it was so cool! I had a lot of fun with Maartje (we really have a similar taste!!), met the lovely Teresa from Beejoux with whom I'll be sharing a booth at the Sunday Market, talked to people I 'knew' online but had never seen before and I managed to take all my stuff ALONE by BIKE. That must have looked a bit silly: me with lots of bags and a huge backpack on a mint green bike :)
Oh I almost forgot, there actually is a good thing about not selling too much: I don't have to prepare a lot for the next fair :)
