First Outdoor Market!

Today I attended my first outdoor craft market at the Bells Corners Farmers Market! Despite its small size (and the very smokey air outside) it was a great opportunity to experiment with my set-up and inventory.


Stuffies By Steph booth set-up.


In the days prior to this market:

  • I finished some stuffed animals

  • Put in an order for art prints (of which only the photography was completed in time)

  • Baked and assembled polymer clay earrings

  • Packaged photography prints

  • Experimented with the layout

  • Painted the sign in the middle of the table

It was a pretty busy week leading up to this market!

That sign started its life as a cake board, but with layers upon layers of acrylic paint and much patience, it became the sign you see today. I personally think this sign really brings together the whole set up, giving it a unique touch.

All that hard work leading up to the market paid off, allowing for a fairly successful first market in Ottawa!

With all that I have learned from this market, I am excited for my upcoming (indoor) market! Come check out my next market on July 8th at the Glebe Community Centre. I will have all products pictured in the photo above and more! (This includes: posters, art prints, photography, polymer clay earrings, and various stuffies).
