Wow! I can't believe how quickly things are getting off the ground for me with Stripey Squirrel. I have been totally overwhelmed with people's support and encouragement. It's been amazing. After the organiser of the Herne Hill Christmas Market spotted my site on a friend's Facebook page, she contacted me to see if I wanted a stall on Saturday just gone so I jumped at the chance, not sure I was any where near ready to actually get my stuff out there and off line. I needn't have worried. The day was a huge success and as well as selling lots of stuff I also met some really enthusiastic and interesting people who gave me an insight into stall-holding and market selling.
Holding the stall was a big turning point for me and I really want to make sure I can get my hand in at more markets in the new year so watch this space! However, after the huge success of Saturday's one, I am going to have to seriously pick up my sewing pace to keep up with demand!
Thanks again to everyone for the kind words, encouraging feedback and enthusiasm for the whys and wherefores of what Stripey Squirrel is all about.
For now though, its back to the sewing machine....
