The Craft Fair

 Hello folks! I think I've just about recovered from the excitement of the craft fair to settle down and post some pictures of my set up.  Thank you all for your good wishes to me - it really helped bolster my confidence.
My son is peaking out from the stall as it was held at his school.
All in all I was pleased with how things went and how interested several people were in my crafts.
 The table was on the small side so I felt things were somewhat crammed on .
 The cross stitched pillows were popular



 It was a learning curve in many ways and I'm glad I took the opportunity to do it.
 I found that most folk were looking for smaller items and medium priced crafts which is something to keep in mind.
Now that it's behind me, I'm getting my home decorated for the holidays and hope to share some pictures soon.

Thanks so much for all your support and hope to hear from you!
Best wishes

  1. My, you've been working really hard - your stall looks really lovely. I suppose it must be difficult to work out what will sell especially at Christmas with all the other expenses - hope you did well all the same x
