Farmers Market

So my mom and I are thinking about doing the farmers market. I'm really excited at the prospect. It would be great if it went well. The only thing is that I need ideas on how to keep the kids happy while we're there. It would make for a long saturday morning for them. I may need to borrow Jane's Playpen. Another thing that I'm thinking about is getting a female manequin to display the wrap. I won't be selling the pocket sling or the meitei there but I will take orders for them.

I'm really excited especially because I'm at the place now where my stock is getting up there. I just have to sew like a crazy lady now. Oh well it's fun. Is there anyone out there at has a menequin? Another thing that we'll need is a table.. but I think we might be able to get one from my mom's friend. I need to think of some fun display ideas though. And I'll need a sign Christy! WAHOO! very fun!

Ben and i thought of being clowns for the farmers market...but he has soccer on Saturdays ...so probably not..hehe but we sure had fUn last Friday..
hummm.....i think as well as orders you should have stuff to sell,..at least i would rather buy and receive the same day...? just a thought.

I will make the sign!!!!!!!!!!

And I would offer to be your manniquin but that would be creepy and I don't think I could stand still for that long!

I am going to sell stuff.. I just won't have the pocket slings and meiteis cause they're more work and they aren't as good of a carrier.

Thank you Christy! I'll try to get the stuff for a sign this week.

very cool! i know why your not going to have ready made pocket slings and mei tei's and i know that the wrap is a better carrier but i think that the pocket sling is more apealing at first and because its more user friendly i think you would sell more.....it might pay to have a couple with you and then see if their big sellers.....just a thought.

It wouldn't really work anyway because they are customized.. so they'd have to be ordered anyway.

It would be very fun if you two could be clowns at the farmers market.... very cute!
