Yes, it is 3 am and I am up writing a post. Yes, I am tired. Yes, I have been up since 1 am. Thanks Bitly! (Not!) Crazy pup started barking at something big, scary and IMAGINARY just after 1 this morning… then of course my brain won’t shut off. So I am up, getting work done and checking things off my never ending to do list. 🙂 This weekend was Market Weekend for February! And Oh Boy! Was it a busy one!
This month I had THREE Booths and THREE Businesses to manage. It was a little Crazy! Fortunately I had some help 🙂
Now normally its just my Homespun Happiness shop and occasionally I’ll bring along my Purple Tiger (Awesome, Natural weight loss and energy supplements). Handling those 2 on my own has never been a problem. But for this month, my friends and the people that introduced me to Posh, Rick and Terry, weren’t going to be able to set up their regular booth. So… they passed the Posh torch to me for the month! That meant 3 10 x 10 booths that had to be used, filled with awesomeness and made to look pretty!
I don’t have nearly the amount of inventory that Rick and Terry have, but I managed to stock up on some best sellers and get a pretty decent display set up. My friend Shelli has some of this fun Pink and Red Heart fabric that I was able to add for a nice Valentines-y kick of color.
Because I knew there was no way I’d be able to manage on my own, let alone fill up 30 feet of booth space, I asked a couple of friends to join me 🙂 Alicia and Leah set up with their Jamberry goodies and Carrie brought her amazing crocheted products and yummy cupcakes (Seriously SO yummy). Carrie MAJORLY helped me with my handmade business (Thanks so much girl!!) There is no way I would have made it through this weekend in one piece if it wasn’t for her help!
And it was definitely needed! In the time that I’ve been a vendor here, I think this is the busiest I’ve ever seen this market! It was Crazy! People were loving all the Posh products and wanting to sample and smell and learn more. I loved telling them all about the amazing, natural pampering products 🙂 When needed I’d pop over to my shop side of things and give Carrie a hand.
By last night I was BEAT! Standing on those hard concrete floors does a number on ya! But with all the customers the time flew by! And before I knew it… the weekend was gone!
Today is all about relaxing, hanging out with the hubs (he’s home until Tuesday!!), and putting ALL the things back where they go 🙂 How was your weekend??
