4 Purchase Reviews From Etsy UK Sellers!

Today marks the busiest day my little shop has ever had. EVER. Without my mother helping by packing the orders into their packets I would have been lost!12144916_10153379496279635_107448631894731539_n

A Disappointing Stall Day… :( ( iZettle Referral Code Included )

Today I had a stall at my local hall!


It wasn’t what I was expecting and I came away feeling pretty disappointed! I’ve decided to write this post in the hopes to remind myself of the positive and negative experiences of the day and maybe pass on some advice 🙂

I made 21 sales at a total of £65.50. I understand that to some this could seem like a success but when you consider that I was working for a total of 7 hours alongside my brother who I pay £6.50 an hour… that takes us down to £20 profit… and then the table cost £18 …which takes us down to just £2 profit 😦

I made some awesome purchases from other sellers there, I bought these themed cushions from Gee Bee Designs for just £6 each! They’ll be great on our computer desk chairs at home!:


I also bought these cute mini soap sets for £1 and a slice of Rose Geranium Soap and Lavender Soap for £2. They’ll make lovely stocking fillers at Christmas time. They come from a shop run by a brother and sister called Tigermuffin Soaps!

Anyway, I am now going to write up today’s pros and cons.. we’ll start with the rubbish and get it out of the way!
