Sunday Upmarket First Day

Hello, I've been feeling guilty all week for not posting these photos but after all the hard work it took to get ready for the market I've been exhausted, and I had major wisdom tooth pain!

So here I am setting up, I dragged my boyfriend along to help with the first one as I didn't know how long it would take and how being only 5"1 I was going to get that fabric over the shell!  He's 6"3 so no problem for him.

Can you see where my inspiration tallies up with the last post?

You may also notice my charity shop finds being used.

I kind of underestimated the size of the table, it was huge, so my dainty jewellery did well to attract peoples attention.  

If i'm honest the day didn't go quite as well as hoped, it could have been due to many reasons (I blame the weather myself, it was horrible that day) but I took lots of positive ideas to try out the next time.  I'm not going to take it personally because I didn't see anyone particularly doing that well.  I guess that's just how it goes, some days are good, some are bad.

What do you think of the set-up?  Please be as critical as you like, it all helps.  I'm thinking it needs bigger display boards at the back to get rid of all that empty space.  I also need extra lighting, can you think of anything else?



  1. wow!! its so pretty and inviting .. you did a great job!

    I used to sell jewelry myself and its always hard to make them fill those huge tables but I think you used your props in a very smart way .... and the vintage plates pull it all together :)

    Best of luck in the future

  2. ...haha, honestly, I keep staring at your cute outfit! (your jewelry and set up is lovely too though)

  3. I love how you used the book to display your jewelry and also the tiered plates. It would have caught my eye if I had been shopping.

  4. Thanks ladies, I'm excited about doing the next one so i'll let you know how it goes.x

  5. It looks so great! I love the book idea. I defo would have stopped to have a look and purchase!
