Market Day - we're in business!
Very nervous the first morning and late setting up! Even though it says be set up by 10am, all stallholders we ready to go at 9am when we arrrived. Thanks to Kurstin, I had a lesson on how to construct a Gazebo and we were ready to roll at 9.55... beautiful weather and the comments from people were awesome. My girls are the youngest stallholders her market fee half price! I was so proud of her and her origami demos drew lots of interest.
A really successful day for our whole family, working for weeks to achieve this, a great school holiday project.
My favourite customer was a young guy who brought a bouquet for his first wedding anniversary, telling us the first year token is paper! what a sweetheart.
Thanks to all our friends and family who came to see Paperlicious Origami in action, especially, Miss Page, the beautiful teacher who taught my daughter all about Biz Kids, who happened to be at the markets on our first day, thanks so much!
Big hugs to Kate at Mini-Eco for the garland idea, Shazza for the gazebo, Trace for the table and transport! and Mark from the Art Group for our groovy business cards, posters and labels, they are so professional.
