Original Release Date: October 10, 2018
Since getting into the market scene, I've learned a thing or two and tried to really streamline my experience.
I like to get everything packed up the day before and then double-check I have everything the day of.
Which markets to research
Consider your target audience, length of the show, travel time, and cost. You can search Google or Instagram or Facebook for local markets, or ask for recommendations from other makers in your area.
A couple of tips?
Make friends with your neighbors
Be friendly but don't oversell
Invite people to smell and touch
Stay present (ie. off your phone) as much as possible
Bring a snack and drink with you
Bring a friend to watch your table when you have to pee (or ask your neighbor)
Know your products and don't be afraid to talk about them
Smile and have fun!! 😊
