...and, relax...

how are you all?
(How did your craft fair go, Ali?)
I've missed you whilst preparing for the craft fair but I'm now gradually catching up with all of your news.
my stall
I'm pleased to say our craft fair was a success, with many lovely customers and talented makers.
I made a respectable amount and met some super people.
I was very restrained and only splashed out on a vintage watering can for a mere £7. Unlike the first craft fair I did when I spent almost all of my profit at the fair!!
Things to remember for the next fair are:
1. Do not believe your 15 year old when he tells you that having 4 friends to stay the night before the fair will not cause any problems as they will be quiet!
2. Remember to eat properly the day before so that you don't wake up at 2am with a rumbling tummy!
It was strange to wake up yesterday (Sunday) and have nothing to do for the craft fair - it was nice to have a 'day off'.
But, by today I was itching to make something so I made some cards.
My stock is very low so I'll need to get back to the making properly soon as the next craft fair is on the 14th December - not that far away.
Thanks for visiting

  10. Ha ha oh dear Suzanne you should know better than to believe a 15 year old. My craft fair is Friday, I am wondering what I have let myself in for. Worrying about display, pricing and do I have enough stock. Your stall looks really pretty. I must remember your advice and not spend. I will let you know how I get on.

  11. Your fair sounds great :) Have a well deserved break before the next one!

  12. Your craft stall looks very inviting with lots to look over. I'm afraid I'd be horrible at these events if I had my own stall ... all I'd want to do would be to look at the other stalls! Wendy x

  13. Oh, I love your stall-and I love, love craft shows! They can certainly wear a gal down-good there is coffee!
    So happy to be following your blog:)
