On Sunday I took part in the local Larkhall Christmas Craft Fair, I haven't done as many fairs this year as I've been concentration on my notonthehighstreet shop. After I have agreed to take a stall I kind of regretted it as last year I did three Christmas craft fairs had barley cover my tables costs, Sunday however turned out to be a winner! The fair opening at 10.30 and ran till 3.30, we had a busy stream of customers right from the off set, people where still buying as we where trying to pack up!
I always like doing the Larkhall fairs as they are held in The New Oriel hall which is one of the nicest village halls I've ever seen, it's extremely well used by the local community and has been done out really nicely inside.
We sold so much stock, some of which I had left over from last christmas!
We totally sold out of the Sun Hare & Moon Hare prints and bags which I was chuffed about. This is a new design and I wanted to test run before it goes live on my shop. Hopefully it will prove as popular on-line!
A big thanks to my Mum who came and kept me company (she does good sales patter too!). I shall definitely sign up for this fair again next year! Although I am glad I only decided to do one fair as I've been snowed under with on-line orders!
