Well, we have had our stall at the Market Room for the last few weekends.
It has been slow as people are not aware that we are here. I have been finding people that come and talk to me say we have beautiful things and that they will let there friends know. So fingers crossed it will pick up.
The people I meet here are lovely and so friendly including the other stall holders. They are Egyptology and Budgee Garlic and Herbs. They hope there will be more stalls soon. That will also help bring more interest.
If you read this and live in Toowoomba come and say HI!!!
A little while back Ann and myself decided to give the local craft markets a go. Reluctant to give up our weekends we sort of resisted the idea for a bit, but a few factors kept pushing us to give it a go.
After some thought the idea started to grow on us. The whole concept of marketing our work and actually, maybe, selling some work were both big factors. We do want to build Rocket Rose Art so that it does supplement our retirement so we made the choice to give the markets a go and see what response we received.
As we are currently getting ready to attend a local craft market, namely the Queens Park Craft Market in Toowoomba, Australia, the issue of Public Liability insurance reared its ugly head.
It is not unusual, and understandably, for market organisers to require stall holders to have Public Liability insurance. So a few enquiries with stall holders and others about who they used lead me to make several phone calls enquiring about a suitable policy.
That led to a can of worms and a long drawn out process before we actually managed to find the right policy.
"My life has been full of experiences, good and bad. One that changed my life immensely, for the better, was immigrating with my family from England. My interests are many, but I am always learning. I look forward to sharing my interests and journey as I learn more and accomplish my goals "
"Too many interests and not enough years in the day is my biggest problem. Listing my interests is just not possible, but the name Rocketman should give you an idea. Think science and the arts!
As I get older I seem to have this urgency to get things done, to leave my mark but also to learn more.
With Rocket Rose Art I hope to share a lot about myself, create lasting memories and help other artists in the process."
