I don't ask for very much. I spend my days making bags and pouches and then I sell them at my booth at Vivocity. If I manage to make a sale, I am happy and appreciative. If I don't make a sale, I'm not happy but I'm not unhappy. This is part and parcel of being a handmade seller.
Even though I don't ask for very much, I do ask that I am treated with respect - not so much as a handmade seller but as a human being. Yes, a human being who is not a piece of furniture - who has taste and feelings. On Sunday, a couple decided that the best place to make out (and mind you, this was done quite "violently" with slobbering and saliva) was right in front of me (and I was standing up attending to them). This couple had come to my booth to browse. Nothing caught their fancy. But instead of walking away, they carried on standing in front of my booth trying to dislodge each other's tongue. I believe I should put up a "NO MAKING OUT" sign at my booth.
Luckily for me, my sales on Saturday was quite good. Because on Sunday, it really, really sucked.
My stock is pretty pathetic at the moment. I have another craft market at Vivocity this weekend. Yes, I know. Why did I get arm locked into this arrangement? I have at most 4 days to sew up more stock.
This was me on Saturday. I did not suffer any headaches or migraines. The wax burner was far away from me and the varnish and lacquer people weren't close enough. I was really grateful.
The blue people came to visit and this time one of them hammed it up for me.
Some of you complained that I did not take a front view of the men in blue. So I took one this round. Hope you ladies are satisfied. I took from the side because I didn't want to be too obvious. Please, I have class, you know!
I don't understand what happened on Sunday but shoppers seemed to avoid our little craft market. I mean, Vivocity was filled with shoppers. 4 sellers packed up and left early. Maybe they had a plane to catch. Maybe they had an emergency. I felt really defeated. Later while we were packing up, we made one last sale. That sale really made me happy. Like you're down and suddenly you're up again. See ya.
