I recently attended a craft fair which was in a great room, very well organised but badly attended and I wondered why. Craft fairs are hit and miss and I certainly wouldnt criticise organisers of events as they DO take some organising. I have contemplated previously whether craft fairs are a thing of the past. People are used to paying car boot prices and I think it takes a great venue and people who really appreciate handmade to make a succesful day as far as sales are concerned. The basic requirement for an organiser is to have great advertising. Who knows your event is happening ? Have you put banners up, a week in advance (minimum) to indicate that your event is on ? I do however enjoy interaction with fellow crafters and it is great to network with others, offering support and advice where possible, appreciating others crafts (purchasing helps) and sharing knowledge of events in the area.
I dont know whether it is the summer approaching, but I have been inspired to make lots of new things. I am loving making adjustable necklaces as they can give such different looks. I love creating my polymer clay jewellery and gifts, it is so satisfying. Slowly, slowly products are being added to the website, so keep checking in
I had intended on advertising some special offers before the bank holiday but as normal, life took over. Keep your eyes on your mailbox this week as I shall be sending out a spring newsletter, with something special for you
