Indie Market

I had my very first "First Friday Indie Market" this weekend-- this is the same market that I applied for last month but didn't get accepted . This time I got accepted and I had a good time. I have to admit that I was SO SO SO nervous on my way to the market. I have been told that my creations are cute but I have never sold anything that I have made. Typically the things that I make are for myself or close family and friends-- it's weird to think about someone actually paying money for my items.

I didn't sell as much as I had hoped but the girl in the booth next to me said that her night wasn't as good as last month either so that made me feel a little bit better.  My biggest seller was the little dresses that I make (which I didn't get a picture of before I sold them... oops) and I gave out some business cards to some ladies about making dresses in specific sizes.

I will say that I learned a lot-- I learned what sells and what doesn't. I got some great ideas on better displays so that people know what I'm selling, and I even got some tips on pricing. I haven't decided if I am going to apply again for next month yet, my family thinks that I should, but I need to decide this week so I'll keep thinking.
