I have been expressing since last fall how I wish to set up at the farmers market to sell my hand crafted items. I was originally going in with three other friends, but one had a baby in February and one moved away for work, leaving us two older birds to contend with a dream.
The one with the baby makes homemade canned goods.
The one who moved away is a horticulturalist and would sell flowers from her parents farm.
The third, still game, is older them me and makes wonderful cards.
I smock and knit.
The dream is still there but on hold.I need to make stock. In the meanwhile I have sold about a dozen bonnets, both on-line and from showmanship of my youngest.
In the meanwhile I have decided to make a pretty shop on-line to sell my goods. That way when someone sees one of my bonnets on my daughter ( last week 7 people stopped me) I can hand them a business card with my web page and they can order or get in touch with me that way.
I had a web page but I am closing it and renaming my shop after the name of our farm. That way when I do set shop at the farmers market the farm name is included.
Tonight I have spent hours setting it up. I thought I would present it tonight to you all. I still have lots to go on the page, but this is a start.

Tell me what you think. Positive and negative and any other ideas that might come to minds.
Thanks a million.
