http://farm7.static.flickr.com/6087/6143073481_8b8dc21dde_b.jpg Well some of the stock came today via courier. Nice man brought it all in for me and nice PA Justina agreed to cart them to the market stall for me.


When the stall is properly installed we will get deliveries at the stall itself. I am thrilled by the stuff I opened - its like Christmas.


DID I MENTION CHRISTMAS? Practical things that make good presents/stocking fillers - like the gizmo in the picture for helping to open those pesky jamjars in the kitchen.


But Steve has painted the stall a very sunny yellow and we are waiting for the hooks to arrive-how do we arrange the goods? Do I need more stuff? It is hard to visualise how much goods I needed. What will sell?


I best get a semblance of a stall up for Wednesday. The Coventry and Warwickshire BBC is going to be broadcasted from MY stall - Stall 6 opposite the Fish Tackle Supplies and Shoe King. But I have to leave a corner for the engineers and his gear.


Vicky Bourne who came to interview me last week kindly told me she had my first day placement at BBC Coventry & Warwickshire and spread the word about me there- thanks Vicky!


Anyway, now I have to put some prices on the stock and think about what else I should order and whether I should have a launch. Can we have alcohol in the market? Very excited about some new crutches tomorrow-leopard print!

It's so exciting! I can't wait to see how it all pans out, I have a feeling you'll do really well, especially if your stall stuff is so cool like the jar opener in the photo! Keep us posted! :-)
