Lovely sunny day here in Carlow. Taking a break from the after- Christmas clean-up for a few minutes, phew! I had the wonderful opportunity to be involved in the Creative Carlow pop-up shop before Christmas. Creative Carlow is a grouping of "creative" people who live in Carlow, www.facebook.com/CreativeCarlow , its made up of some very talented crafters and really lovely people! With the support of Carlow Entreprise Board we were able to set up a pop up shop in the main street in Carlow town.
I learnt so much from the experience too and a great tip for anyone like me who is new to crafting is a stock list! Usually at markets I would pop up a price in front of an item, such as Doll cushions, 5 euro but for the shop each item was individually priced and then added to a stock list. This was you can easily keep track of your items, what is selling, what isn't selling, what you need to make more of etc. A great way to run things that I am keeping up!
Right time to go paint some trees on walls, all part of children's Christmas presents, room makeovers, I'll keep you posted!!!
All the best,
