A New Venture. The Market Stall

Hey there fellow Bloggers, Friends and Googlers!

Last weekend I gave the ole’ Market Stall a go. I would love to say it was highly successful, heaps of sales! But no. I was the newbie, among the veterans of Stallholders who gawked and laughed at my sad attempt. Don’t get me wrong, I got plenty of great comments “Ohh you have some lovely stuff here!”, “Wow, your so creative!” and yet, I walked away with (I assume) a few pitty sales.

Unfortunately, I didn’t take a picture of my display, however I can describe it to you. Bland. A black sheet background, nothing hanging, everything on a single table. Since that horrible day, I have done HEAPS of research!!!

Here’s what I have to correct..

1. People don’t go to small town markets to spend big $$

– Your better off selling cheaper items. Market goers know there won’t be any ATM’s, so they may only bring $20-$100 cash. Expect that you’ll only make a small profit on everything you make. For the first few months, you may not even make anything ontop of the cost for materials, with all the haggling and bartering! But also a good idea to get your name out there!

2. Don’t look Desperate

– Market goers are intimidated when you desperately ask them to take a business card, or tell them the markets they can find you at next week!

3. Colours

– Bright, vibrant colours will draw in the kids! I have alot of Craft for Children but I went for the ‘Simple, Calico and Wooden Box’ Style Stalls. I had one child come over and have a look (because her mum dragged her over).

4. Stock

– Have plenty of stock. The more you have, the more interested people are. If you only have a few items, people are more willing to have a quick look as they pass by, The more you have, the more they have to hunt around to see everything on display.

And Last but not Least…

5. Weather

I live in Queensland, Australia. It get’s hot. BE PREPARED! I was lucky enough to have a lovely lady next to me who looked after my stall so I could dash quickly to get a Frozen Slushie… But I’ve learnt my lesson! I’m buying an esky and stocking up on Ice and Cool Drinks!!

So this is all the info I have for now. Round 2 is this Sunday, This time I’ll take a picture of the ‘new’ display and hopefully be able to present you with some better news!!!

Christmas has come!

It’s December already!

While everyone is out amongst the hustle and bustle of the Christmas Shopping rush, I have launched a new Business-
Mumma K’s Home Organisation Services
Home organisation was a huge struggle for me, for many years. Even to this day, there are a few project’s I want to complete before the new year, to get my home up to tip top shape!
I have been spending the last 12 months, researching many different ways to reach optimum home harmony and have found quite a number of magnificent idea’s!
Most of my recommendation’s are rental friendly, as I have that restriction. I can’t paint, or hang things where I want, But I’ve discovered ways to defy those boundaries!

This weeks huge focus is the Bedroom. We all have those area’s where bits and pieces are shoved in a rush to ‘tidy’, clothes that will ‘fit one day’, that t-shirt with ‘sentimental value’. Mumma K is tough but fair and has successfully helped a number of people to get through those attachments and rid themselves of junk!
At some level, majority of people have a hoarding problem, I definitely do! I have a problem with craft supplies! (Sorting that out is on my list!)
Sometimes we just need a little push to get those jobs started and out of the way. That’s when the Locals of the Wide Bay Region QLD can call on Mumma K.

New Stock!

I’ve created a Business–

Organisation Week!!! Some Idea’s and Tips!!!

So, It’s Organisation week and I have been looking on my second favorite site HOUZZ!!!

Here are a few AMAZING Idea’s that I have found that will be incorporated into our brand new home.

Drawer of Electronics. My Fiance’ and I are terrible at keeping our phone chargers and laptop cables in neat order and usually end up spreading them throughout the house!!! I LOVE this and I will be turning my top drawer of the TV cabinet into our ‘HUB’.

As much as I LOVE this idea, our new house doesn’t have a very large hallway, plus being a rental, I can’t do anything permanent. BUT I’ve been thinking about entryway organisational idea’s. One thing that’s popped out is…

The hall stand! I have one back at my parents place, but being 12 hours drive away, has proven difficult to bring up here. It was my first piece of furniture that I ever bought!

What I love about it is I can walk through the door, dump my keys, phone, handbag and not have to clog up the dinning room table!

As a substitute, I’m looking into a replacement hall stand or hall table, hat stand, shoe rack, basically a decorative, organised place to dump my stuff haha.

I found this picture on Pinterest and after looking in my pantry, decided this is a fantastic system and shall also be putting this into action when unpacking our new kitchen! Lordy I had no idea how many pantry items I had forgotten about because they got pushed to the back!

Organising your House! Organizing your LIFE!

I am moving in the next week and leading up to this, I have been cleaning out all my unwanted clutter that has piled up around me and have really been looking for ways to manage our home.

I am a serial ‘quick tidier’. I will race around before someone comes over and put things ‘out of sight’, thinking that one day Ill have the time to put them all back where they belong. In doing this, I have several spots full of random, unorganized junk, for example, un-used drawers, baskets, cupboards.

In packing up our house, I have been putting everything in boxes to move along with their rightful friends. Using the masterpiece that is PINTEREST I have been finding ways to keep my new house from getting to that point.

Here I’ve posted the link to a wonderful woman who has put a challenge out to all home organisers.

Ill be implementing the idea’s when we move!!!
