Markets and Giveaways!

I had a market this morning and it was rather flat. Very flat, actually - I sold ONE item (.. how embarrassing!) .. quite a few people admiring and commenting favourably, but not buying! Ah well ... I guess that means I'm saving my stock for the fabulous BrisStyle Indie Designers Markets in July - can't wait for those!!!

Now to the giveaways: The BrisStyle blog has Kitty Boo Boo and Betsy Kingston as our featured Brisstylettes this month and both are giving away some lovely goodies!

Miss Kitty Boo Boo has these very gorgeous booties that she is giving away - so sweet! - as well as some hair clips and a cute brooch.


Bettsy Kingston has these ridiculously gorgeous "Hungry Caterpillar" baby pants up for grabs in the giveaway. (there's a little boy's version too - cute!)


Head on over to the BrisStyle blog for your chance to win!!

Want more giveaways? Eliza from Eleven Hair is having one too! She has this lovely turned keyring.
Head on over to her Etsy shop too to help her raise funds for her little friend's operation.

Happy weekend everyone :)

Don't worry, I've had a market like that before. It doesn't do much for your self esteeem though does it... I'm sure you'll do great at the BrisStyle Market (it just means you won't have to work as hard in the lead up !! )

Well done at the market. Don't worry I had experience like that before. It's a little annoying but soon you will be selling lots :D
Thank you for the link for the giveaways. Have a wonderful weekend :D

Obviously the market crowds didn't know class when it was staring them in the face. At least you will have more stock to sell at the BrisStyle market - always look on the bright side of life!

Shame about your market yesterday. It might be for the best that you have kept your stock. I'm sure the BrisStyle crowds will be eagerly buying up your jellydelights!

Gee that sucks Ali. Hot Fudge is right, your stuff does rock and I'd be buying my mum everything from your stall. The BrisStyle market should be heaps better in July for you !!

Sorry to hear that the market didn't go so well on the weekend. My guess is that because that big craft show was on the previous week, most people probably spent all their money there and were just out browsing this last weekend. They'll have money to burn in their pockets come time for the BrisStyle markets! So yeah, it's no reflection on you because your stuff rocks Ali! It's just the way it is sometimes :)

Oh...nothing to be embarassed about. We all have shows like that from time to time. You have lovely things, so who knows why people weren't buying that day. I'm sure things will pick up at the next one.
Lots of great giveaways! Wish I had a little one to put the cute booties or undies on:)
