Sorry for the delay in updates about the market stall, since the start of the markets it has been go go go, with the markets quickly followed by Christmas/Paxmas and New Years!
For the last two market sessions we set up our stall at the Manly Creative markets.
This was a much nicer location than
Each week we felt like we got the hang of it more and more.
We would like to thank the Manly Market organizers for their help and allowing us to set up at no charge.
Over the three weeks we raised approximately $900, we still have to do the final count, and also there are some items with pending sales.
Although not a completely dismal amount this is no where near what we had planed to raise. Obviously with the current economic climate market stalls are not doing so well either. We spoke to other stall keepers who said they too felt that they where not doing as well as they have previous years.
A friend recently ran a fundraiser for special equipment for their daughter, in which they had a large raffle, this fundraiser was quite successful, so with the remaining items* plus hopefully we will source some more we hope to run a raffle around Easter to try and reach our fundraising goal.
