We had a really bad day of sales at the Gonubie Main Road Christmas Market at the library on 6 December 2014. In fact, we sold absolutely nothing.

A good few people looked at and admired our craft market products, saying things like “How clever” and “How creative” and “What a brilliant idea” but nobody actually bought anything.

So we made no market profit at the Gonubie Main Road Christmas Market on 6 December 2014. We ran at a loss that day. Our market costs were R50 petrol and R50 market stall space fee.

However, it was a beautiful day and we enjoyed the attention our products were getting, even if we made no sales. A Gonubie shop owner also asked us if we could bring her some of our craft market products on consignment. We’ll think about that one, or consider the whole consignment thing more at another time. We’ve had another place ask if we can leave some of our craft market products with them on consignment too, but both these places are not close to where we live.

Back to the Gonubie Main Road Christmas Market:

It was quite hot so we were lucky to be set up near a tall tree for some shade for most of the morning.

There were about 22 market stalls, clearly visible to passersby in Gonubie Main Road but not all that many people stopped by. Perhaps it was a little too early for a Christmas market. Schools had not yet broken up for the Christmas holidays, and people from other towns who come to stay in Gonubie for the Christmas holidays had not yet arrived.

I was feeling pretty depressed as we needed some extra cash quite badly, but I did cheer up when I eventually decided to take some photos. There’s always that to cheer me up a bit; I love taking photos in general, and especially at the markets Tony and I go to.

The Gonubie Main Road Christmas Market at the library was a two-day event, but we had already planned to go sell at Tea in the Trees in Chintsa West the next day, Sunday 7 December 2014. We have no idea if we would have had the same bad luck at the Gonubie Main Road Christmas Market at the library on the Sunday that we’d had on the Saturday, or if we would have done better on the Sunday.
