Bleeding Heart Market



Here I am in front of my stall at the Bleeding Heart Market yesterday.



The weather was perfect, the location was beautiful (the deck of an old Queenslander; the historic School of Arts Building in Ann Street) and my fellow stall-holders were lovely - the only problem was that there were so few customers!



There was very little signage to lead people to the market - we even took turns going out in the street to tell people about it - most were very surprised and happy to come and have a look. The few people that came seemed to like my products and I sold enough to cover the cost of the stall, but it was disappointing nevertheless. I don't think I will be back next month. Oh well...

This weekend I am trying to put some of the things I learned at the conference into practice. For instance, I am giving Twitter another go - if you would like to follow me, I am @lindarobertus.

Hi Linda - I just found out about this market this week through weekend notes, and your blog - but I'm out of town...I need to get on to twitter too - seems a lot happens that way.

Your booth looks great! Sorry to hear the customers were few but maybe the next year it will get better.
I've tried Twitter and Facebook, etc...but I just noticed how much time I was using up on the computer instead of working on what I really wanted to work on. It's such a toss up if it really works or not. I wish you much success!
