It went well. Several ladies commented on how pretty our booth was. And both men and women mentioned we had the best smelling booth. This was surprising to me because we were next to the tamale people and that was all I could smell! I think it was all the lavender products.
We sold a good amount of produce, a lot of my herbal salts and some soaps and body butters. All my homemade herbal teas sold, but not a single bag of the regular teas. After the market we went to the health food store/cafe in that town and sold most of the herbs and veggies we had left. That was nice. We'll do that each week. They also bought some of my herbal salts, vapor rubs and lip balms to sell, so that was a bonus.
We learned a lot and have some good ideas for next week. I think we're going to try and sell cold bottled water. It was hot and the only things to drink were some odd fruit waters from the tamale booth. :)
It was so much work to do. They have a midweek market, but I am not sure I am up for it!
By the way, all the rules they hounded on before didn't seem to matter a bit. Whatever.
I'd love to hear tips and ideas from some of you ladies who've been doing this for awhile!
