Weelll - its going to be a big old week this week starting with a toddler coming to see me at 3:30am and culminating in market this Saturday.
I'm rather uncharacteristically ahead of schedule - perhaps because I'm sharing a stall this time round with Juliet over at Tartan Kiwi I've been a tad more aherm organised.
She came over Monday to play shops (I love this part). Here's a sneak peak - obviously it will look better in situ than it does in my living room.
I'm always on the look out for cute ways to display my wares. I thought I would share this wee idea - I found this wooden sticks? paddles? in the $2 shop and sprayed them with blackboard paint on the weekend.
The intention is to use them as little item/price labels (either stick them with blue tac or use a peg to attach them). It was a bit of a fail though - I should have primed the things first as the paint has ended up with a real powdery texture. Ah well, lesson learnt - I'm all out of blackboard paint now so I'll probably just paint them white and write on them with pencil, then paint over them when required.
These would be really cute to use as labels for plants - you could paint them as a craft project with your wee one and then you could plant some seeds together and kind of stretch the fun out.
Do you have any tips about market displays - either from the perspective of stallholder or market goer? I would love you to share.
Happy day to you.
