Your Market Checklist

Traders- Hints & Tips

Got everything you need?

So you are having a stall and feeling a bit over whelmed in what to do/take with you.

Check out my other articles about starting up and having a stall as that might be super useful with the basics. ‘Starting my own business’ and ‘Having a stall‘. The last one covers pretty much everything.

With everything small business owners have to think of, it is hard to keep a clear head and remember what you need to pack for your markets. So, to make it a little easier, we have created these checklists for you. They are not gospel but will just point you in the right direction.

Here is a market checklist of what you need, essentials through to nice-to-have items when trading at an event.
