Craft Fayre

Yesterday I spent a few hours of my afternoon at a craft fayre in Osmington, selling some of my greetings cards! It was my first event this year, I'm afraid to say, but I thoroughly enjoyed myself and managed to get some sales, and a few new customers along the way too!

I prepped a lot for yesterday and had about 365 individual cards on sale. Managed to display them nicely too, which help and support from my lovely boyfriend Dave, and everything kicked off at 1pm!

I think everything looked nice! Those three cards at the very front were made by my Mum, who has taken a plunge into the world of felt-work. She managed to sell one of hers!

The little felt pieces can be removed from the cards and used as decorations, which I think is a really neat idea! I wouldn't have the patience to make these...

Dave and I are now the profile picture for the event's Facebook page, which is sweet!

Overall a really nice event, with some very talented local artists and crafters. Buying handmade is definitely the way forward. It's a shame the weather was a bit hit and miss, but we had some customers! I will be making another appearance at the next fayre on the 15th September, so put it in your calendars!
