    Default Selling at a Market

    Hello, I am a part time working mum. I have an excellent balance with work/home at the moment. I have an extra day up my sleeve and really want to get into selling at the markets.

    Just looking for any advice really from someone who holds a stall ?

    What's it like, is it worth it? I've heard from a friend of a friend about a sock guy who makes thousands weekly through winter ????

    I guess its worth a try !

    Any comments are welcome !

    What were you thinking of selling????

    It depends on your product as to what type of market. Crafty, homemade items, definitely stick to the Craft Markets as people are willing to pay for homemade items.

    I do markets, although I haven't done one for a couple of months, have just lost motivation. I make handmade hair accessories and have a few markets that I do all the time.

    Initial set up costs can be expensive, tent, chairs, tables, inventory, signage etc.

    Fees are usually $50 - $70 for the markets I do, but there are some really big festival markets that can be from $100.00 - $300.00 for a stall.

    Find a couple of markets and call them up. See what the $$ are for a stall.

    What do you want to sell? Normally you ca make a bit of $$'s, but it's not something that you will do to make A LOT of $$ but just a little extra $$ on the side. You will do it for the love of it, not for the $$.

    "I've heard from a friend of a friend about a sock guy who makes thousands weekly through winter ????"

    If you make your own stuff this does not happen. Thousands are usually out of the question. Hundreds though......
