A few weeks ago, I decided (rather spur of the moment) to have a booth at the monthly flea market on base. It was an experiment…..one I won’t repeat. It was more garage sale that craft vendors so I wasn’t too successful. I mean, I made enough to cover my expenses but I actually did better with my work colleagues than at the flea market. Anyway, here is my meager first time booth.
I had hairbows and headbands made so that’s what I took to sell. You can see there are also a lot of random clocks. Those are from a craft project that didn’t pan out so I decided to sell those as well. They were actually more popular than the bows. Sheesh….
If you see my iPad at the end of the table. I made a slideshow of my other crafts to play with the some music. The music was quickly drowned out by someone with bigger speakers. The sun made my slideshow almost impossible to see. I did have several offers to purchase it but that wasn’t going to happen.
The one successful part of the flea market was meeting Sharon from Modern Lux Photography. She had a booth across from mine and saw my headbands. She purchased a couple for a shoot she had and sent me the pics. Yay!

So, there was success. I just think I may do better on Etsy or at a craft mall. Hmmmmm…..we’ll see.
