The Christmas market

This weekend I was selling my stuff at the Christmas market. On Saturday it was +10 degrees and the rain was pouring down. It was very few people that visited, but who can blame them? It wasn’t exactly what you call “Christmas spirit”…

On Sunday the weather was a bit better and I think I saw the sun for a little glimpse. It was many people at the Christmas market but no one was buying… Of course I got a few things sold but it wasn’t the quantity I’ve expected. It was fun to try it, but I don’t know if I will do it again. “Don’t give up, you have beautiful things!” one of the other crafters said to me. “Next time you maybe sell all of your things.” Maybe she is right, time will tell. I maybe set up a blog shop with the stuff that I didn’t get sold…

The building was beautiful and your stand looked STUNNING!

Don't take it to heart, as you said, the weather was poor and so you didn't get enough visitors.

I have been at fairs and sold very little, then taken the same items to another and sold out. Are there any more fairs that you could try, before Christmas?
Your items are delightful...don't give up!
Try selling on Blogger!! Good luck!

Så mye fint du lager - jeg er imponert! (har tatt en "runde" på bloggen din). Koselig at du besøkte bloggen min idag. Og jeg kommer nok tilbake hit også.

Synd du fikk solgt lite, men det kan jo sikkert gå bedre neste gang. Jeg syns alt var så fint satt opp, og du syr jo flotte ting også.

Her har ikke kundene skjønt sin besøkelsestid!

Du hadde en nydelig stand, og nydelige ting til salgs!!

Mye arbeid hvis det ikke kommer folk, og ikke det er noen som kjøper, så jeg skjønner at du må tenke deg godt om du vil gjøre dette igjen.

Du får gi et ord hvis du åpner en blogshop!

Det var så lite så! Tack för hjärtat! :-) Ja, visst är det synd att folk bara tittar och inte handlar! Tråkigt! Men som sagt, det kanske funkar kanonbra på någon annan marknad... Och blogg-shop är väl en superbra idé?!?! Ha det gott! Kram

Så dumt at du fikk solgt så lite da. Ligger jo masse arbeid bak og du hadde jo ordnet det så fint på din stand. Men sånt er vanskelig å forutsi. Men du kan jo prøve blogshop. Da får du helt sikkert solgt!

Sol said...

Heia. Synd at du ikke fikk solgt mer,det hadde du fortjent.Jeg synes du har superfine ting.Å lage seg en Blogshop er nok ikke dn dum idè. Gleder meg til å se innom den.
Klem

Hei :-)

Jeg hadde iallefall kjøpt hjerter av deg :-)

Stå på - ikke gi opp etter engang :-)

Marianne T said...

Hvor mye koster hjertene dine ?

:-)

....men så mye fint du har da. Må lage bloggshop istedet. Tror vær og stemning har mye å si for salget. Har forstått det sånn på messer og affærer at man måste ha den rette atmosfæren dvs at væderet passer inn. Så jættesynd det fortsatt er høst overalt. Man mister liksom julestemningen. Men du lager virkelig vackre saker så skulle ikke være noe problem å få solgt noe )
