As well as making some new pendants (see below), I've been busy sourcing and re-ordering point-of-sale and display items ready for the start of my Spring/Summer Market season. I LOVE doing this, it's all fresh and new and exciting :)
1st came my new gazebo which is made of super sturdy stuff and is white which I'm thrilled about as I will now have a more cohesive colour scheme which was lacking with my faithful old royal blue number :).
It arrived a few days ago but I haven't been able to trial putting it up as yet due to drizzle, and today it's gale-force winds ... wish me luck, apparently the record for one person assembly is 22 seconds ... I'll be happy with 15 minutes!!
Next on the list was a new banner. My current one drives me nuts - NUTS. It's too big and cumbersome and falls down whether strung to a table or taped to a wall. We often do battle and I feel like it's a bad-mannered, cheeky kid waiting till my back is turned before it falls to the ground - honestly, we've had some arguments that banner and I!
So this time around, I've ordered the same size but with an image duplicated so I can cut it and have 4 small banners that I can put wherever suits ...
And then I've ordered re-prints of the all important labels and business cards...
And just because I want to see what all the talk was about and www.Moo.com were doing free Facebook timeline business cards + freight of a whole GBP2.75 - I got me some Moo cards. This is one of two designs I've ordered and I can see I might have to go back and get some mini cards with pics of individual jewellery pieces on because they are just too cool for school!
To complete the look I have purchased some organza fabric to use as draping etc on the inside of my gazebo - can't wait to see the white with flocked black patterning which should arrive tomorrow , and I already have some plain black. Oh, and I have to knock up some plywood boxes to match my shelf display - I'd better get on to that as I've almost convinced myself to do an outdoor market at the end of October which will need all of the above :)
(P.S. If anyone has a source for white plain tablecloths about 3m by 1.8m, that are crease resistant, please drop me a line - now my old banner's redundant, my next bug bear is my easily crumpled table covers!!)
