Our stall, me, and my awesome bum bag. It was sweltering yesterday, we lucked out with a shaded spot.
Random shot on the way from the car park.
We had visions of our things just flying off the racks and making $200 each, however, it turned out that nobody wanted the clothes we didn't want (surprise). We ended up marking everything down to $5-$10 and just broke even, but proceeded to spend most of our profits on dinner. When it came to money earned per hour, it was probably the hardest job I've had. To make ourselves feel better, we came up with some reasons why it wasn't a total waste of a day:
- We got closure for the clothes we didn't want (we ended up putting most of our unsold stuff straight into a donation bin).
- It's given us insight into how hard it could be to sell things for a living, especially for smaller businesses.
- We now know that we should never try this again.
