This event was GREAT! I was surrounded by local craftsmen with all of their interesting items they had to sell. The person next to me was a mushroom connoisseur and someone else was selling tie-dye tank-tops (I bought 2). The environment was extremely lively with music and colors from my balloons :).
This event went well considering it was the first Fresh Market I participated in.
In the beginning, I set up the table with an attractive blue table-cloth, many sample balloons, and this poster:
I feel that the poster helped get people to come because it showed the various creations I could make along with sample images. I even made real balloons which I showcased on the table. I think that my set up is really what got me the sales I wanted.
In the end, many had bought the balloons and some were interested in birthday parties – they took my card. This was a satisfying and rewarding experience.
