Quick Pics from the Sunday Markets

Markets again yesteday!!

Sadly it wasnt the Xmas money maker i was hoping for and i only just cleared my margins. I probably wont be returning to Narrabeen Markets for some time, i got shoved in the back woods and as a result got hardly any traffic coming past.

I think i will try Manly next, a bit more upmarket and less all over the place.
Anyway despite the lack of trade i still had a lovley but tiring day, ive made lovely new friends and its been a great experience all up.

I think the main thing ive learnt is DONT GET TO CAUGHT UP AND EXCITED ABOUT IT ALL! Just because you've had a good week or incredible feedback doesnt mean that sucess is going to continue all the way, selling at the markets is hard work and often comes down the being in the right place at the right time with the right customers.

Anyhooo, enjoy my pretty pictures. I wont be back untill after Xmas.
No holidays for me, working hard right up untill Xmas Eve.
Got to keep earning money whilst i still have a job.
Have a strong Egg Nog for me will you.

Leaf Home

I took some pics of the amazing shop i have been selling some of my products to, so i thought i share with everyone.
It was closed so i couldnt take any pics of the beautiful incredible products they stock but i did get some pics of the window which has my products in it!!!!!!
My stuff is the Christmas Bunting and the Fabric Advent Calender, ive been selling so well there and im totally honoured to be part of the store.
The other designers and artists stocked in Leaf are sooooooo talented and the store owners and all the wonderful ladies that work there have seriously good taste. Im so looking forward to seeing what they have to offer when they open thier fashion store, Leaf 2!
If you live in Sydney you should defintely take the time to come down to the northern beaches.....Newport to be exact and have a look around its a beautiful little suburb, you can go for a swim, cool down then head to Leaf for some seriously worthwhile retail therapy. I end up finding something gorgeous and new every time i drop off new products!

My Christmas Begins

Its been a VERY busy couple of months.

My apologies for being absent but blogging seems to be the last thing i have time for at the moment. Im back being a Visual Merchandiser, and away from home alot more than im used too but i LOVE the work. Im also very busy creating for the markets and all my gifts for Christmas this year.

The last Market wasnt as productive as id hoped but there was an Annual Market a few suburbs away which im sure affected turn out. Anyway on the plus side i now have plenty of stock to do the christmas market at Narrabeen.

Apart from all of that im trying to get in the christmas spirit, put the tree up a week ago and in typical fashion my decorations have changed again this going for a natural woodland beachy feel, just need a few more "Stick Stars" and porcelain shells and feathers from the fabulous Leaf Home!
