I have had a wry chuckle tonight over public liability insurance! I had made the assumption that most of the businesses would have their own cover. Turns out I am an arse and only one business that has registered thus far has their own cover. I will now have to crunch some more figures and get back to you all!
Online registration for stall holders is now up and running .... there are a few questions that I make you answer but I promise it is a fairly painless process. Are you super keen to become a stall holder? then show some link love and register your interest here!
A few questions that have been thrown at me have been great and I thought I would share their anwers here.
- Will there be coffee? Absolutely, I can not function without some decent coffee at markets. I have my eye on one that also does yummy hot chocs for those of you who are not coffee addicts :)
- Will there be second hand goods for sale? Absolutely not. You will only find new beautiful kids products - admittedly some of them will be made from upcycled fabrics, but that just makes them even more unique in my books
- Will there be any of my competitors there too? Well without knowing exactly who your competitors are this is a hard question to answer. Stall holders will be hand picked by moi, and I will be doing my utmost to have a variety of stalls.
- What are you doing to advertise the market? I am in the process of getting my head around sponsorship of the market, so I am really hoping that though the businesses that are interested in sponsoring us I will be able to afford a decent advertising campaign. On the wishlist at the moment is a flyer mail out, print ads and editorial in local newspapers, as well as lots of good word of mouth. Oh and all of the usual social media thingies too. I am working with a marketing guru (my words not hers) on this project, but if anyone out there would like to help out in this department I would love to hear from you. In return you would get my undying love ...... but not much else (ie this would be a voluntary position, just like I am running the market voluntarily)
