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.
