Cranage Hall - Craft fair

Not the best fair I have ever done, in fact it was the worst but hey! who said we were in it for the money? Just as well really! It was great to see some of the other 'crafters' though. I was pleased with
my stall and the new products went down really well. I am at Haydock Park this week and I have booked a 12' table in the hope that this may help, my tables until now have always been 8' and most of that is a return and people don't walk down the return part, I'll let you know how that goes!

On the eve of the fair....

....tomorrow is my first fair of the year and, despite the fact that I have been working flat out for weeks, I am still convinced that I haven't got enough stock - ever the optimist! I have lots of new items from felt spectacle cases, catnip cushions, Kath Kidston fragranced cushions, bags of lavender and rose and some lovely chicken 'hangies, I will take lots of photos and post them tomorrow. I am looking forward to getting some feedback from the customers (good or bad!) and seeing some of the lovely crafters that I met last year. The picture is some wooden lettering that I make with butterfly and dragonfly adornments. Well I shall get on and check my bag for the last time!

Lizzy's tip: Don't spend money on expensive bags of filling from craft stores, I buy the pillows/cushions from my local £1.00 shop - they are ideal!
