Just received an invite to :
"We are very excited to announce that a local councillor from Warwickshire County Council has approached us to put on a monthly street market within Coleshill Town Centre"
The first thing I spot is the table fee of £35. Now if I add to that the >=£20 it will cost me in fuel to get there and back that makes an initial charge of £55 before I’ve even sold anything. Also take into account at least 2.5 hours travelling time, same for setup and take down and 3+ hours sorting out before I leave…
If I work on a very basic10% ‘commission’ rate which It costs me to sell online / Country Market - I would need to sell in excess of £550 to match that.
I can I think guarantee Not to sell anything like that amount so will not be going.
I only do events which are <= £25 and local.
What does anyone else think is reasonable for a monthly market price or any sort of adhoc event ?.
