Anyway, yes, I survived the fair - it wasn't as intimidating as I thought it might be - my two year absence was worrying me a little! It was very reassuring to see some of the craftstall owners whom I knew already, so nice to see familiar faces :) The Craft Fair organisers are very accommodating and friendly and do a really good job of looking after all the crafters - how nice to be asked 'Is everything OK for you?', a big thumbs up for them :)
The other craft-stall holders were lovely and friendly (there was quite a few 'newbies'!) - so any fears of my sitting on my ownsome all day with no-one to talk to were quickly put to rest - the couple beside me were really kind and had me in kinks of laughter. I think I was very fortunate with my neighbouring stall holders - all selling a variety of items and very interesting to talk to. The lady opposite me was selling some pretty felted soaps so I had to have some of course, hehe . . .
All in all, a good experience - saleswise I did OK, but not great, enough to cover the cost of the stall (very reasonably priced!) and some extra over and above that. It wasn't a particularly busy day and there were a few lulls in the stream of visitors but heigh, ho - that's craft fairs for you! I enjoyed the challenge of it all, and it really made me feel more focused on my craft business by doing it - heck, it fairly got me finishing and packing all these little items I'd been meaning to do for ages . . . :)
I've even managed to add some of my craft fair stock to my Etsy shop today - hopefully more to be added through the week. Off to enjoy a good nosh of curry now as my Other Half is making Sunday dinner - it smells delish!!
P.S. Hopefully I'll get used to the new Blogger soon - bear with me:)
