Sunny But No Money!!
Today I set up stall for the first time in Hexham. There was a farmers market and a bout 12 stalls in the busy park near by. There was a brisk flow of potential customers, but very little actually sold....the only people selling things were the food stalls. Lots of compliments, but not much putting hands in pocket action. This is frustrating, as I think my stall looked the business. People expect everything to be so cheap these days.....well my stuff wasnt made in in a sweat shop in China or by a 7 year old in India. If I reduce my prices anymore it will not be worth my while. Maybe the recession has something to do with it but I took only £7:50 today....not even covering the £20 I payed for the pitch. A short reassement is necessary, not sure I'll be rushing back to Hexham with my wares. The only consolation is that the sun was shining all day and I was visited by family and friends.
