Hello! :) In Berlin there's a design market called Trend Mafia which regularly takes place on weekends and at which people sell handmade items. I went there last year and it was the first time I've been selling my products at a market. I was not very successful and only sold a few items, but it was a good experience and I had just started selling my handmade products on DaWanda a fews weeks before that date. The market at which I had my first own booth was last year in September, more than one year ago. :) In the meantime, I have nearly sold 200 items on DaWanda and I thought it was time to try it again! :) I applied for one of the many dates in December (during the Christmas season, the market takes place every Saturday and Sunday) and this time, they immediately accepted my application. :))
I'll be having my own booth at the Trend Mafia on December 4, 2011, from 1-7 pm. This time, it takes place at a really central place, namely in the Hakesches Quartier at the S-train station Hackescher Markt. (Wow, it sounds really weird inserting German proper names into English sentences... :P).
If you're from Berlin and want to visit me, I'll be happy to see you, so save the date and come over to say hello and let me know that you're one of my blog's readers, I'd love to meet you in person. :)
There'll be lots of vendors who sell handmade items like clothes, Christmas decor or accessories. Can't wait, I'm already preparing my table's decor and I'm thinking about which products I will take there and of which I have to make some more. :)
I'm sooooo much looking forward to this date! :)
Here are some photos of me and my booth last year, and after December 4, I'll share some more of my second attempt of selling my items at a market. :)
