Calculator (or have one on your phone).  I sold 6 items to a lady yesterday (!!!! Smiley ) and added it up in my head, then on a piece of paper and eventually on the calculator on my phone, cos I was soooo paranoid I had got it wrong!

A mirror so customers can see if necklaces look nice on - and so you can check you haven't got chocolate all round your mouth (or is that just me?! Tongue Smiley)

I get people just walking past looking in my mirror, I was thinking of charging a 'check out your hairdo' fee!  At one market another stall holder was selling fair trade jewellery (imported, and very nice) but hadn't got a mirror and borrowed mine!

Hallmarking notice - OOh yes, I always have mine!

Tape measure - definatley and something to keep the table cloth tidy (I agree Sarah I hate messy tables!).

This place has leccy laid on with extension cables, so that one is sorted, but needed to add tables as they aren't.

Lots of brilliant ideas thanks very much.  Am adding to my long list.  Any more then please let me know and then maybe we could add this as a sticky or something in this section for times when folks need the advice?

I have the mirror and produce it when needed, got fed up of the people checking thair make up as well.

I'd add - wet wipes (clean hands after handing,money before food, or food before stock)

I got a flat bed truck off Amazon, the can be folded to make a set of steps - handy if you want to fasten anything high up - weren't cheap but are very sturdy.

This type http://www.amazon.co.uk/Folding-Platform-Trolley-Barrow-OT1008/dp/B004LYJPQ6/ref=sr_1_31?ie=UTF8&qid=1331141007&sr=8-31 doesn't stay extedned unless you cable tie the extending bit together so gets nil point from me (and is under my spare bed somewhere), will see if I can find a link to the other one.
