This weekend I got my act together and achieved several things that I’ve had on my to-do list for a while:
-Sorted out my computer filing
-Saved off invoices etc that were sitting in my emails
-Tidied my desk
-Made up some gift boxes for Rebel Pebble (need to do more for April market)
-Made soap! (Need to make a LOT more)
-Played around with my new display stand (from Homesense)…
We’re excited to have booked all of our Little Fox Market dates for the year, starting with Saturday 18th April (check out our Events Page), and we are also doing the Woodoaks Festival in Maple Cross and the Courtlands Residents Association Family Fun Day in Watford the Summer!
Our aim in 2013-2014 was not to be running all over the UK doing markets, but to concentrate on our regular Little Fox, along with a choice few Summer festivals, but even more so this year so as not to over-stretch ourselves as we do need to keep our shelf at Rebel Pebble stocked and exciting, plus we have some other projects in the background (like you do), plus online sales have picked up in the last six months, which is fantastic.
Being at an event is great for getting your name out there and meeting people. (I love chatting to people about skin!) However, a market takes out the entire day, plus the prep time beforehand, which although we really enjoy, can also be exhausting, so we don’t want to be occupied in that way every weekend when we also need to distribute our time amongst making products, the behind the scenes admin and of course coming up with new ideas! I know some business owners who rely solely on markets, so they need to be at everything, and perhaps their production is not as intensive as ours (not always the case!), but as much as we love them, we don’t want markets to be our main thing, if you get my gist.
Anyway, see you in Ricky on the 18th of April!
