What to take to a market. Market stall tips for Craft & Handmade stall holders.

I'm certainly no expert when it comes to be a stall holder. 
As a stall holder I just wanted to share some of my tips for a successful craft market.
I have only been doing this for a short time but long enough to know what is essential to take to a market.

What to take to a market.....  Market tips for stall holders.

Business cards

White table cloth,

Cash float of $100
 in change and carry it on you if possible - I recommend an over the shoulder satchel.


Fold up Chair

Clothes Rack - if required.

Notebook & pen to write down sales, etc

Emergency pack - panadol/headache tablets, etc, water, snacks, pens, twine, blue tac, safety pins for your tablecloth (& banner), calculator, sticky tape, scissors, tissues etc.
Also a Tarp  or sheet of plastic (to cover your stock or you, if it rains!).

Make sure Prices are clearly displayed for every item.

Props - stands, baskets, boxes for display.A visually appealing display will help you sell more items.

Carry bags for Buyers. 

Tent / umbrella - if required

Banner or signage/ advertising for your stall (take blue tac, pins or string for attachment)

Inventory/ STOCK - meaning all items you are wanting to sell.

A smile :)

Remember to get to your venue early to unload & set up for your stall, sometimes customers arrive early.

Store all boxes, bags under your table & out of sight.
