This weekend I'll be back at VivoCity, Singapore selling my bags and stuff. Go here to find out more. I have lost track of the number of times I've gone out to sell at craft markets. I know it's a lot. One thing though - I always forget to bring something. Today I decided to do a checklist of what I bring to a craft market. I'll simply refer to it in future.
2. Name cards
3. Table cloth
I forgot my table cloth just once this year in February. I didn't know how crucial a table cloth is until I tried displaying my pouches on a uncovered surface. There was no friction and my pouches kept sliding down and wouldn't stand proud.
4. Props and hooks
5. Plastic carriers
No, I did not go green. Why? Paper carriers are more expensive. Most customers refuse my plastic carriers anyway.
Once I offered a customer my mirror and then I couldn't find it. So embarrassing.
7. Receipt book + working pen + calculator + list of item codes
Here at VivoCity, I don't need to bring my cash change as we have a cashier. But I need to write out the invoice with the correct item code and price.
8. Items I'm selling
Once, a long time ago, I packed everything except my bags and pouches. hahahaha
To take photos for my post-mortems.
- panadol and anti-histamine
11. Stuffing for the bags
12. Little things but they're important
b. scotch tape
e. extra price tags
f. sewing kit
g. energy bar
h. a book
I'll be back on Monday with my post-mortem. So see you then.
