My friend Gillian and I had a stall at a craft fair in aid of Friends of The Earth today. A lot of you emailed wishing us luck and asking for a report so here it is :
It was a good day and what a lot of nice crafters. We Thankfully did very well but i heard a lot of people there saying it was an awful slow day and they hadn't sold anything so they wanted table money refunded. It was for a charity so I am not sure that was very good form :( , but as Gillian and I were way past the £200 mark with a third of the day to go still, I felt I shouldn't really judge.
I don't know what you think but when you give a charity money for a stall then you just have to take your chances, and too bad if you sell nothing. You cant take your money back, its like backing a horse that loses and saying you changed your mind after the race and asking the bookie for your money back, only worse as its a CHARITY!!
Anyway back to the positives lol (can you tell that made me mad!)
Both of us were Also approached by a shop owner, "Louise Pringle of Eclectic Shock" nominated for Scottish fashion accessory designer of the year, who took a lot of our stuff to sell in her shop and she wants more (mostly jewellery) so thank goodness i made those extra 20 domino necklaces the week before LOL. She has listed my things under "hand made finds" category.
I will share some of the great "crafters" we found there in a future post as there was some really cool folksy sellers and non folksy sellers. thanks again for the nice emails this week and today.
