Our very first Christmas market stall was such an amazing experience. As Niyabo was born just before the pandemic season and before we went live, we found ourselves on hold in the over 2 year lockdown phase. Finally after finding luck in booking a stall, the preps started.
Over the weeks of excitement, last minute changes, the over planning and worrying melted away as the doors opened and the first customers walked in. We were amazed at how supportive all the other vendors were, from coming through to process transactions on their card machines for us, promptly helping out with change, giving us a helping hand by packing away purchases when our queue was getting longer and not forgetting taking over when we needed a quick break!
The most we worried about were the customers. It's true that a few years ago, not many had picked up the interest concerning nature and tuning themselves into leading an economical and sustainable lifestyle. But we are amazed how the current "global warming" awareness call has awakened many into paying attention to mother earth and embracing anything that can help preserve nature.
Our first set up was indeed colourful and we can only get better. As we continue to expand on our product range, we definitely will introduce more and more beautiful colours and unique treasures.
