One of the best things about market day is the neighbouring stall holders. During set up there are jokes about needing coffee, how early we all got up, and the terrible Christmas Carols on the PA that we’re already sick of.
Love that first rush of customers…mostly parents with prams or kids rushing about. They shop quickly, they often know exactly what they are looking for…then they are gone.
I love the later customers even more; they linger and chat, they ponder and ask questions, they look at all your products and they come back for a second or third look before they purchase. they buy slowly and deliberately. Those are the interactions i really enjoy. They are the ones that tend to buy from rockmelon recycled.
Every time a customer buys something from me it is an honour, so thanks so much for valuing my creative work.
