How Not to Sell at Markets!

Sweet Fine Day is a wonderful blog written by Jenna Park of Whimsy & Spice, one of my absolutely favorite Etsy shops. W&S's artisan baked goods are definitely among the best around, and how I wish they were located in Houston, instead of Brooklyn, NY! You should try the Earl Grey Sandwich Cookies- they are amazing!

Jenna's posts are thoughtful and insightful, and usually contain fun photos of her two daughters, food, Brooklyn, and New York in general. I found How Not to Sell at Markets particularly humorous and perceptive, considering all of the time I spent selling the critters at art markets and craft fairs last year. It's comforting to know that there are others who share almost exactly the same thoughts while attempting to peddle their handmade wares! It is so much fun to meet new potential customers at these shows, and to talk to them about my critters, however, one always wonders what they really may be thinking- Jenna sums it up perfectly!
