    So very excited. I was made redundant last week and instead of getting another job I am striking out on my own with a market stall. I shall be selling embroidered baby wear, vinyl and embroidered t-shirts and might slip some of by cards on there as well.

    Just in the middle of putting all the stock together, I bought an Elna embroidery machine last week and it has been working its little sock off. If I can remember how to post pics I shall put some up. I have remebered to buy carrier bags, have my float, joined the federation of market traders.I am making my banner tonight so now have to remember if I have forgotten anything.

    If anyone is around Bury market tomorrow come and say hello.

    Hope it goes really well for you Vicki.

    Wrap up warmer than you think you'll need to, don't forget the flask and fingerless mitts.

    Best of luck xx

    How exciting well done you taking that huge step - wishing you all the very best of luck!!!!

    Just remember to remind everyone that evem glances at your stall you will be there every week so that you can enhance on the potential sales - as said before bus cards etc to handout will be helpful to grab custom from those who dont have cash on them at the time xxx
