Charity Fair (delayed) Update

I had a blast at the charity fair.

It was awesome to experience selling my handiwork at a proper stall. I enjoyed interacting with potential buyers, watching people hold earrings by their ears while looking in the mirror, making my recommendations, and having people give me money in exchange for the earrings.

It was a very simple stall because I don't actually own any earring display stuff. The earring holder on the left was on loan from a colleague, and the one of the right is my Ikea necklace holder which I tied ribbons across to allow for hanging space.

I sold S$600 worth in about 2 hours! It was a huge amount to be donated - the organiser was really surprised by the figure, and I was quite amazed myself, and very grateful.

I'm thankful for this experience, and look forward to more!
