Highlights From My First Suitcase Rummage Market......

Yesterday as many of you know I headed off on my first venture into the market scene. I was a stall holder at the Suitcase Rummage on the Gold Coast which was a joint presentation of an event with Rabbit and Cocoon in Miami.

I have to be honest and say that I was a tad nervous on the way to the event which is unlike me, but any nerves I did have quickly disappeared as soon as was able to get busy with setting up.

I was so surprised and delighted that the stall holder who set up next to me, was a seller I had actually met before when I went to a rummage in Brisbane earlier in the year. It certainly helped to pass time having someone to talk to and watch over my site when I needs to take a quick break.

I'm pleased to report that ten minutes into the official start time of the market I made my first sale it was a boost to the confidence and I then had my next sale not long after and I got a "tip". Thank you ginger haired man on your aqua and yellow race bike with your handle bar mustache, twisted to points.

One of the gorgeous highlights of the day was to meet Laura from Kit and Nancy, it's always cool to meet fellow bloggers face to face. But for it also to be such a sweet lover of vintage things, it really was extra cool indeed to meet. I'm so chuffed you found some treasures among my collections.

By all reports from regular stall holders it was a quiet rummage, but a trial at a different location and a collaboration with another event organiser is expected to throw different results. I'm not perturbed by these reports as I'm just happy to have my first one under my belt and the fact I made a profit, so I'm happy.
