Phew! What a day! Today after 8 weeks of planning my first Cheeki Monkeys market happened in Worcester 🙂
I chose the Lyppard Community Centre (now Lyppard Hub) as the location and i know it is home to lots of family orientated groups and already has a good target audience to get involved. It also has ample parking right outside and is close to the M5
With 13 pre loved and 4 businesses booked I was all ready to go, a pre loved and a business dropped out last night and the same again didn’t turn up! (Find this quite rude!) But never mind – it allowed me to give extra space to those who really needed it! We opened the doors slightly early as everyone was set up ready, we had a VERY busy first 40 minutes with it tailing off towards 3pm and very quiet for the last hour!
Luckily the feedback from stallholders was positive and a great day was had by all, hopefully we will also get some from the customers who left me their details 🙂
8 weeks till the next one and hopefully i can be less nervous and enjoy the day a bit more!!!
*I no longer arrange Cheeki monkeys market days in Worcester but I have amended the links above to guide you to the main website and facebook pages so you can contact them directly with regard to upcoming events or should you want to join them to arrange them yourselves. They are always looking to find event organisers to help arrange market days locally so why not get in touch if you can help?
