    Default Feel a bit nervous!

    Hi everyone!

    Just wanted to put a little message on, because on thursday i am going to Tavistock market to see if i can sell some of the things i make from my website (www.woofwoofcoats.co.uk) and i feel quite nervous! I just need a bit more confidence in myself! I would be so chuffed if i sold lots of things! Wish me luck everyone!

    Emma, your things are so cute! It is hard to come by nice handmade things! You will do well! Good luck, but you don't need it!

    Does your supermodel get to go with you?

    Good Luck!!! Your stuff is so cute and I'd recommend you bring your model with you too ... if people see how cute she is they'll imagine their own dogs might look as cute wearing your coats.

    Best of luck - I'm sure you'll have no problems - especially if you take your gorgeous model with you

    Hi Emma, best of luck on Thursday. Maybe print out some pics of doggies wearing your stuff and put them up around your stall. It always helps if people can see a range of doggies wearing the gear -then they know which size to buy instead of saying "oh!, I'll have to check and come back next week" Remember the seven P's
    Proper prior planning prevents pi_ s poor performance

    You'll be fine. Have price tags, people don't like asking a price. Don't forget to say or have a little sign up saying you custom design items if they have a design idea. Have plenty of cash on you for change. Plastic sheet if it rains, paper weights if it's windy. You'd think I'd worked on a market wouldn't you!!

    Just noticed, it's an indoor market!! Forget the plastic sheet and paper weights!

    Let us know how you do.
