The stall we had at the May day fair was kind of how I expected it was going to be. Both me and my sis sold a few items each, so not a complete waste of a day but not a resounding success either (although our mum insisted on buying something from each of us, and we tried to protest, but in the end just let her do it because she wanted to support us both)Very early on in the day we came to the conclusion that we had the wrong audience - and we may have made a lot of money if we had been to the cash and carry and filled our car with boxes of sweets to sell.
At one point during the day two children came up to me to ask me for £2. I asked them why they needed £2 and they said that they wanted to go on the bouncy castle. I told them to ask their mum for some money, and their answer was that mum needed her money to buy some drink (I presume they meant wine/beer etc). I told them that I couldn't give them my money because I needed it and they walked away saying 'It didn't work'. Damn right it didn't - I would say that I was more in need of £2 than those kids were! I'm just astounded how bold (note use of polite word - insert a stronger one if you wish) some kids are these days.
We were not completely deterred by our first craft stall and decided that maybe we should do a craft fair next time - and see how our stuff goes down with the right target audience. The good news about not selling so much is that we both have things to fill up our esty shops. I will do this tomorrow.
Check out my sisters shop here - she's already uploaded some of the stuff she didn't sell.
I needed to make some more greetings cards and people keep saying to me that my cards are not boyish enough. With this in mind I picked some coloured papers from my stash, and started to sew them together
I then added a bit of gocco lettering and did some creative cutting and this is what I have come up with. What do you think? Is this something that you would buy for a man/boy?
