Successful Tip Top Table Sale

The first ever Tip Top Table Sale in the White Lion in Streatham got off to a quiet start. The space, a long low room with a wooden floor and windows along one side, was rather nice, and there were also a couple of tables in the courtyard outside. It was an interesting mix of stalls, from cakes and jewellery to crafts, cosmetics and second-hand clothes and shoes – everyone was very friendly.

We were starting to wonder whether we could pipe in some music to liven the place up a bit. But then Ms Tip Top (aka Joyce) and her friends stood outside the pub madly handing out flyers, encouraging people to come in. And it worked – for me, anyway. I sold some eyeglass cases, a felt purse and a felt starfish. And I also got a commission for an eyeglass case from one of the other stallholders – thank you Maria of Plastic Seconds!

The sale will be held every Sunday from now on. I hope it succeeds – it’s a nice atmosphere and raises money for the Music4Children charity as well. Plus the stallholders all got delicious cake at the end from Cakings. What more could we ask for?!

  1. Hi Kim, Glad to hear that you had a more successful day than we did the first time. I did a stall too yesterday at Lauderdale House. I only sold one thing but I was demonstrating and got lots of potential useful contacts and interest. Several people asked if I could teach workshops!! Watch this space!!! Tess

  2. Tess – that’s great news! I’m starting to think that fairs and stalls are as much about making contacts as about selling things – I met some great people at Tip Top. (Of course, it’s a useful bonus if you make enough at least to cover your costs!)

    See you Wednesday.


    1. Hi Maria,

      Thanks so much for your link. Unfortunately I didn’t think about taking photos – too excited by the first sale!

      I’ve noticed while on holiday that “big” sunglasses are very popular, so I definitely need to extend my product range! Your case will be the first thing I work on when I get back.

      Speak soon,
