I had my first stall at local markets yesterday.  It was the Tuggeranong  Lions Community markets and although I did lots of preparation, there was very little traffic, so not much success.  But I had fun preparing these boards.  The first was about Stampin’ Up! in general.  Information about Ordering, Hosting, Joining, the Occasions Catalogue and Sale-A-Bration.

My next Board was about some of the great products in the Occasions Catalogue. I showcased the Myths and Magic Suite and the Lovely Wishes stamp set.  I shamelessly copied the samples shown here so if they are yours let me know and I will give you credit.

My third and last Board was about kits. I featured the Soft Sayings Card Kit. Such lovely cards! And so easy to put together with this all-inclusive kit.  I included some alternate ways of using the kit contents.

The ideas for these boards was from a Demonstrator in the UK called Natalie Rothwell O’Shea who generously shared her ideas for market stalls in a private Demonstrators facebbok group. Thanks Natalie.

I had help from some Stampin’ Up! sisters on the stall. My buddy Vicki kept me company all day. We had a prize draw gift on show and lots of samples of various projects, as well as some cards from my stash for sale.

Frances joined us for the second half and brought along a kit of her own to display, along with some completed cards and the Box. The Perennial Birthday Project Kit is absolutely beautiful and contains supplies for 16 cards and a gorgeous box to store them in. Unfortunately, I didn’t capture it in a pic.  Thanks Frances.

So I plan on giving the markets another go in May so lets hope more people come along. This is a long weekend in Canberra for Canberra Day so perhaps that explains the low numbers!

Till next time
