Well I did it! Market day has been and gone. What a great day. The sun was out and no rain,yes!
Everything went to plan, except next time I'll make sure I'm not roasting 'til 1am the night before (think I'm still recovering). Everything seemed to come together, the logo, the packaging, my new red trestle table hand built by my boyfriend JB (under strict direction of course).
The day wasn't all about the sales, but I'm really happy about how my product went. There was genuine interest in the coffees I put on the table.
The biggest error of the day was not having a big red 'Coffee' sign out the front. For some reason I assumed that everyone knows that little brown bags with Ethiopian or Guatemalan written on the front contained coffee beans. There was a bit of confusion.
So until next market it's back to the drawing board. AR
