Craft Fair Flop!

For a while I have been keen on doing a craft fair and have had a few booked but for one reason or another, couldn't do them. So finally I booked to do one in what will be our new town, Yate; I've spent several weeks cramming in lots of sewing time so that I had something to sell, I made lots of signage and business cards - took it really seriously.

Thought about how to decorate my table, went to the bank and annoyed them by asking for lots of change for a float. I even had a friend and her family come along to give me a hand. Got there, set up... and sold... ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! It wasn't just me though, all the stall holders were really annoyed as no one came through the door!? There was no prior advertisements or any signage outside on the day so no wonder no one turned up!

However, it was fun, I enjoyed myself and it was nice chatting so the other stall holders, even if it was to bitch about the bad organisation of the thing. We won't get our money back, some of the people tried but they claimed it wasn't their fault! A few people took my cards and will hopefully contact me in the future about any craft fairs going on.

Here's to better luck next time!!
