Vintage Craft Fair

We arrived at the Market Hall just after 8am feeling excited but apprehensive. We met Alan straight away who helped us find our pitch. It was a cold morning and we were both well wrapped up but we found to our peril that we were not wrapped up well enough  - so need to think about thermals for the fair in December!

It took us a couple of hours to set up but we were really pleased with how the stall looked - we think it looked the best yet.

We used our sweetpea banner for the first time - a bit crumpled but looked quite good.

The Christmas gift tags were quite popular and a few people asked if we were exhibiting in December so hopefully we will get some return customers.

We grouped some of our smaller items together for stocking filler ideas - for next time we are going to include a few glitzy corsages.

 We met lots of lovely people, it was so nice to be with people who shared our passion about crafting and creating beautiful things.

I loved Vintage Twees stall - everything was just so beautiful.
I have included the link for Vintage Twees blog its fab

 We are busy knitting more children's hats and berets as they were popular - and we never seemed to have the right size!
We have got a couple of other events before the next Vintage Craft Fair, one is at Broadstone Mill on the 28th November, the mill houses a mini craft community with studios to rent and organises a monthly event where crafters and artists can exhibit and sell products to the public.

The next event on the 9th December is smaller, we have been invited to set up a stall at a local school - hopefully lots of children will need our lovely snuggley hats and neck warmers.

Bye for now I have lots to do and if I get all of my chores finished I am going to sew some trees!
