I am going to be able to store my boxes of books under the communal stairs where I live, which will make a huge difference on market day. It’s exhausting moving books around, so the less moving I (and my next door neighbour!) have to do, the better. That makes the market stall more viable – I have been thinking of giving it up, but this does change things.
There are also a couple more very vague leads regarding premises – temporary ones in all instances, but it would be wonderful even to have somewhere for a few months, just to get started and to prove that the business will support itself.
I also have new merchandise to sell – some mugs and fridge magnets with the Tree House logo on – and some membership cards for the Film Club plus new business cards. All look excellent, and the mugs have arrived packed in individual boxes, which is great! I have ordered cotton bags too, but they will take a bit longer.
So all small things, but moving in the right direction. I need these regular, small energy boosts!
I have also slightly redesigned the website, still not sure about it – design is not my forte…but I like the cleaner, less cluttered homepage. And there is space for an address when I finally get one! Let me know what you think, and how good navigation, legibility and other practical issues are.
No market stall this week – will be back there next week, Thursday 23rd May. Next Film Club night two days later on the 25th.
