VivoCity Xmas 2013 Craft Market



I'm all packed for my VivoCity Xmas 2013 craft market. I've done craft markets so many times that if I forget something, it's like whatever. Unless it's my wallet. Or my bags. How to forget my bags, right? Actually, there was one occasion...

Sadly, I don't have a lot of stock. I tried. I really tried. It's enough for 6 days though. I actually fear I don't sell much and have to lug them all home again. Sigh. There's a lot of competition nowadays. It seems everyone sells bags and pouches. I still remember the good old days when I was the only one.

This year I'm going to have to drag both my kids to the craft market every day. I've been told there's a new rule. We can no longer have our meals at our stalls. I guess we all look so low-class wolfing down our meals while customers are gawking at our wares. Of course I literally fainted when I heard the news. I rely on eating to keep myself awake throughout the long hours. So my kids have no choice but to man the stall while I dine somewhere. I might finally lose some weight after all. Woo hoo!

Still, it's difficult to say with my kids. So in case you've come down to buy or collect your bags from me and no one is at my stall? Just hang around until I come back, okay? I'm probably lurking in some dark corners eating.

The kids manning the stall for a bit is a great idea. I used to "work" in my mum's stationary shop on Saturdays since I was 6. I gave advise to customers about colouring books and markers v. crayons like no adult could. I think they will have fun and teaches them responsibility and confidence. Enjoy and wish you lots of sales!

EvaRose,

It's the boredom. Even I can't bear it. I'm bringing lots of books to read.

Wish I could come by and vist and purchase one of your beautiful creations. I'm sure you'll do well with what you have in inventory.

There's a new Upmarket Bread Shop (used to be the Vietnamese Cafe) and they have really yummy bread, cakes and tarts. But the price ...*faint faint*. Hope your children don't love crusty European bread...chicken sandwich is S$11.90. Ham and Cheese is S$9.80.

I like the idea of you lurking in the shadows eating. Good luck. I wonder who will get sick of the Christmas songs first.
