Two months of dreaming and scheming and a lifetime of soaking up skills seems set to pay off this week, my kitchen table the site of planning, marketing, manufacture and distribution of propaganda and briefing room for my staff consisting of 2 pugs a few cats and the occasional stray child may actually start to function as a food serving zone once more. The Bazaar is go!
But this is not just my story of planning and hope. I tested out my spatial planning on Friday last with a dry run of the Bazaar stalls and met one of my new traders Tess. Tess came laden with ideas, not just for what she would sell but for how much she could invest in herself and the scheme, her plans were so full it seems to miss out on only one ingredient…sleep.
Tess’ determination speaks volumes to me of what we can be when we are given opportunities, when the correct match is achieved between work and the individual. She has invested in signage, considered her branding, is actively promoting her products and will be engaging in free tasters with people on the streets of Ennis during bazaar days. THIS is business, this is learning and growing, and most importantly this is living. And this is just ONE of our traders.
Ennis Bazaar are delighted to welcome Tess and her baking, delights such as carrot and walnut cake with cream cheese topping or her own home made sourdough. Come down this week and get some before Ive eaten it all
