So sorry I've been missing for over a week! I was contacted last Monday morning to be offered a stall at a local fayre called the Makers Market on Sunday, which left me six days to get ready! I never stopped all week, making, pricing, organising and getting sorted.
So the fayre was good, weather wasn't great, no snow here but freezing cold and lots of frost all day which I think put off buyers unfortunately as it was fairly quiet. It was at the beach so being freezing I can see why it was quiet, I mean the last thing you think on a really cold day is lets go to the beach :-) According to the other stall holders it was busier in January! Oh yes and the heating was broken so I was completely frozen at the end of the day! However I almost made the cost of my table back and enjoyed it a lot so I booked in for next month before I left. Also found out about two more possible fayres later in the year and gave my business out to a lot of people so it seems promising. Now I've dipped a toe in the water I found I enjoyed it! I have some ideas for new small items that I can sell for a couple of pounds to tempt people in.....
Here's some pics of the stall set up,
I discovered that a mug tree is great for displaying key rings and a cake stand is wonderful for brooches too, lol!!
I made a couple of new houses last week too, this is Gerbera Cottage with lots of pretty coloured flowers around the door.
This is Rosebud Cottage with pink rose bushes either side of the door.
I like how these ones turned out :-) They'll be listed this week in my shop. I have a couple more cut out ready to make this week, they are so much fun!
It was my Mam's birthday this week too so here is the card I made for her, it was a free kit from Card Shop magazine and looks great stitched.
Other stuff I've made this week I can't show yet as it's for a swap so I have to keep it quiet for now :-)
So that's my mad week, this week should be more normal, if there is such a thing!
