Made With Love Market Wrap Up Sept

A big display this time... 2.5hrs to setup, 1.5hrs to pack up. And all on my own!

A long table filled with Ginger Kelly Studio goodies!

Happy to see so many new and familiar faces

my display risers are not quite hiding the organized chaos beyond

basket of throw pillows and my hand painted calico backdrop

having my name on the back drop made a huge difference

alot to look at

many levels and many baskets

how do you like the little picket fence tacked on to my display risers?

vintage suitcase to hold a few dozen postcard packs

the woodland theme is growing with more little creatures amongst the moss

baskets of hair clips, boxes of greeting cards

my 2014 calendar was a bestseller for the day

plywood collapsible greeting card display
Things I loved about this market:

Everyone was very talkative, asking questions, complimenting the organization of market, my display, asking me about the poster & website design (yay!)
I sold a few strings of fairy lights! horray!
The mushroom birds were a big hit with the kids & I had lots of little customers who were very polite & so cute!

Things I'll need next time:

More Calendars
Ice cold drinks... warmish water just doesn't cut it
A better way to display my single postcards
Divide postcard packs into 'Assorted' and 'Multiples of the Same' to avoid confusion
Double check that everything has a price tag. I still get caught out with this!

Things I hope to sell next time:

Charm Bracelets. Everyone looks, nobody buys. Why?
Zip pouches
Hair wreaths

Things I need a better display system for:

Hair wreaths/floral bobby pins (need photos of them being worn)

Ginger Kelly Studio at Made With Love Markets Sept 2013

You could be forgiven for thinking I'd fallen into a well these last 6 months and had no Lassie to raise the alarm to save me... 
Don't worry, I'm alive and fairly well. I could have remained perfectly content in my hermits cave but I had to contact you all to let you know I'll be at the Made With Love Markets on Sunday 8th Sept.That's this Sunday! 
So for all Coffs Harbour folk and people (like myself) in the mountains and valleys beyond, you are invited to come along on Sunday for the greatest handmade market around.
There will be loads of boutique stalls, handmade products, fun things for kids to do and the entry is totally free. There is also free parking, easy to access (what a relief!) at the CEX Coffs Harbour and across the road in the Big W car park.
Get there early if you want first dibs on what the stallholders have to offer...or come after lunch if you'd like to take your time and avoid the morning crowds.

You'll find me along the back wall of the 'big room' as I'm told it's called. If you're a first timer to the Made With Love Markets FYI it is located upstairs at the CEX, Coffs Harbour (Cnr Vernon St & Pacific Hwy) Open 9am - 2pm.
The Market Poster is below... Did you know that I design a new poster for each market? And if you haven't seen the new website, take a look now!

At the last market, my table was looking pretty full.... 
believe it or not, I have made many more goodies to show you 

Here is a sneak peak of some of the things you'll find at my market table

For more info about the markets please visit
Hope to see you there!
