Now for the sober part of my first craft fair - the evaluation.
Setting up the stall
Meeting the organiser and discussing future events
Meeting a varied collection of very nice fellow (!) crafts people
Very quiet day in terms of customers (I know this as the others told me it was!)
Very few sales as a result
Cold in the barn!
- Expand my product lines - all of my products are gifts so I need to give the customers lots of choice. I had already decided to do lavender bags and an autumnal wreath, but will add some knitted jewelry that I have already started working on, am thinking of trying some covered notebooks and will expand the smaller purse range.
- Improve presentation - so that there are lots of bits and pieces in various places. Have found some old planks of wood in our garden that I am going to turn into a stand by nailing together, sanding and painting.
- There is very little I can do about footfall, the next fair I am hopefully, attending will be at the same place in about a month, but in a different location on the farm. It will also be in the summer holidays so I need to make sure I have lots of things that appeal to children (and mums and grandparents!)
- Take a cardigan!
I will be linking to KCCO again this week, pop over for more crafty blogs.
