Win some, you lose some..


So Saturday was the day of the Craft Fair. After getting up at 5.30am...yes 5.30am we were hoping that we would have a successful day and today's main photo is of JT and our lovely stall.

Unfortunately it wasn't quite what it should have been.

Our pitch was a bit poor, we were in the foyer, which in it's self would have been ok, but not with 5 stalls. It was very crowded, we couldn't stand behind our table and so we kept blocking off each other's stalls in the area.

Our takings were slim and quite frankly at the end of the day the lady that was organising it wasn't very interested in taking our feedback (which all things considered was rather measured).

We did make a few sales and I was really pleased that we sold one of JT's beautiful wreaths - photo below.


On the plus side, we learnt how to run a stall together and I'd say that was a big plus. We got lots of compliments about our items, which was really nice after all our hard work. We also had fun, made some new friends and had a couple of white wine spritzers!

We are now looking for alternative fairs, but we anticipate the website being live next week and that should help us shift our lovely Christmas items. The photo below is of our Christmas card display.


All in all many lessons learnt and after all it is a hobby right?
