Today I'm writing a post about my weekend MAAD sale at red dot design museum. You know, the last time I was at red dot was 4th July. A few things have changed since then. Firstly and rather sadly, the food centre near red dot where I get really cheap food is permanently shut down. I almost had a heart attack. Oh, how cruel. The only other place to get food is a well-known market called Maxwell market, I think. But there's too much choice over there and the queue is usually long. The other change is the red floor where I sell at is now air-conditioned so the windows have to be closed all the time. So now I have to pack my sweater. I usually sweat a bucket when I sell at red dot. Now I look like I'm visiting Iceland. (This is the coldest sounding country I can think of so pardon me readers from Iceland, if any)
Since 4th July, I had been selling at different places all over Singapore and the tables provided are longer than the squarish one provided at MAAD for the red floor. I actually found it hard to arrange my bags and pouches on a square table. I have been so spoiled.
So how was the sales? Sales at red dot is never roaring. I sold a grand total of 7 bags/pouches. I have just 1 photo of a customer.
My Anne of Green Gables pouches became a mini-celebrity. But only 1 was bought. The fans just wanna touch the pouches and talk about the stories!
There was a iphone photograph exhibition at red dot museum and of course that means many of the people we saw storming the museum are photographers or photo-loving people. Some of them went around taking photos of our products and rarely asking for permission first. Personally, I don't mind anyone taking photos of my bags even if they don't ask me for permission. But my dear friend Mandy had problems because what she sells can be damaged and some people think it's okay to wear her accessories for photo-taking or tomfoolery! Gosh, where are their manners?
I had visitors. My SIL came by. Also, Eileen of shulingbloom. She's my new friend from Open Doors Weekend Market. Thanks for the visit. It's already October. Time to get cracking on spitting out more bags and pouches for the Christmas period. Take care.
