Be careful what you wish for. You never know. It might just come true.
Remember I had been kinda wishing I could sell at MAAD every month this year? Well, today, there was an announcement that the rental fees for selling at red dot design has been restructured. In order words, it's gonna cost more. Currently, the fees are $80 for 2 days. From next month, if I did not hear wrongly, it would be:
ad-hoc basis - $180 for 2 days
3 straight months - $120 for 2 days
6 straight months - $90 for 2 days
Oh, me and my big mouth! Next time, I'm wishing for gold bars.
This increase is in a way forcing me to take stock and make a decision. Do I want to carry on being wishy washy, selling whenever I feel like it? Or do I want to make a commitment, financially and schedule wise to really make this work? Or do I get out of this biz totally?
So many questions and decisions I have to make. I cannot believe it's only the 3rd day of the new year.
Today I started to doubt myself again. First of all, there was a sharp decrease in the number of sellers. Then the traffic was really low. Lastly, I did not sell out all my new items.
And the sales figures...9 bags including 2 small purses. I was hoping to come home feeling like a rock star. Alas, I feel like a washed out hasbeen! Do I have any strategy? What's my strength? What are my goals? I think I need to stop thinking for a while.

Me and Mandy.Goodnight and sweet dreams.
