Saturday we planted more trees and I was like, Should I? Husband just says "do what you want" That wasn't much help as I didn't know what I wanted. I kinda thought I wanted a stall if only to support the local markets like I tell people they should...In the end it was OK, I will. But was pretty sore and tired after Friday and Saturday tree planting jobs and I didn't know where our market signs were, I couldn't find the cloths we cover the tables with...Did I even know where the float from the last one was...It was all too hard and at 9pm Sat night decided that NO, I wouldn't bother as I hadn't done anything to be ready.
I wake up at 6.30 Sunday morning and decide that seeing it was going to be a nice day weather wise then I would. I would only take honey, fruit and fishfood so should be able to be ready in time. These markets open to the public at 8am so I had plenty of time....No time for coffee or breakfast though as I needed to empty the car so I could put the tables in.
I jump out of bed and it isn't quite light yet so the dog that I am dog-sitting was still asleep so I go out the back door and sneak into the shed. I knew if I woke him he would start barking and wanting to get out and as he is a
By the time I do get there I have 15 min before official opening time, someone is in the spot we usually have but I set up in the sunshine, probably a better spot anyway as it turned out. It is windy and cold but I manage to get the cloths on and the produce set out, Stick the price signs onto the table and then start bagging up some fruit to sell. I then cut out some labels and stick them on the jars that need them. And start selling. All the Mandarins went quite quickly, then the Oranges. I could have sold twice the amount if I had of taken the time to pick more. Sold enough honey to make it worthwhile and a few bags of the fishfood.
All up it was worth going down, I made a bit of money, I supported the markets, talked to the woman next to me so helped out Vinnies too.
The woman next to me said they were moving so she had a clean-out, she had so much stuff. She was saying that she didn't want to take any of it home so was hoping it would all sell. I mentioned that Vinnies was across the road, I could get the key, if she really didn't want what she didn't sell then they would take it. She seemed pleased with that and at the end of the markets I opened the doors and helped her unload a heap of stuff. I spend most of yesterday sorting through it and putting it on our shelves so win win there.
All in all it was a successful day. Cold though, I was going to grab a jumper but forgot so was thankful that I had a sunny spot. It was still cold though. I need to get organised and ready for the next one, yes I do. Will I though. Or won't I...
