Last Minute Craft Fair

Last Minute Craft Fair

I have been quite quiet recently and I am still struggling to find this balance. I only have myself to blame.

To get myself going again I am doing a craft fair this Saturday! I was approached by a lovely lady who said she found my illustrations in one of the shops I sell in and asked if I would be happy selling my work on a craft table at a charity event.

I was only given 2/3 weeks notice but I am taking this as a challenge to force myself to MAKE time for the thing I love doing.

I’m keeping my stock very similar and simple – I have a lot of stock floating about so reusing what I have will only make this as easy as possible for me. I have ordered a few bits and pieces from the printer which I am really excited to collect!

What worked well for me before was taking my card stand and having some items elevated on the table.  Since then I have also bought a shelf that has a groove in the middle and lip on the edge so I can stand up and display my prints. This cost me £6 from Ikea’s bargain corner – BARGAIN.

I’m looking to make a good profit on this fair and hopefully meet some new and interesting people! It’s also a fun dog show as well helping to celebrate The Stray Animal Fund’s 10th Anniversary, so it’s all for a good cause.

The craft fair in at St Matthew’s Church Hall, The Drive, Northampton, NN1 4RY, 11am – 4.30pm.
