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.
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.
