So to the fair that I attended on Saturday, we were there bright and early to set up and had great expectations for the day. However, all did not go to plan and although there were lots of people milling about and looking no one was buying, well from me anyway. I think the problem may have been that what was billed as a craft fair was actually a collection of stall holders selling assorted products. Now I am not snobby, however, I like to attend fairs where the vast majority of products are handmade and this was not the case. Therefore, when people are looking at my handbags they looked shocked at the prices. So an important lesson was learned there and mistakes that won't be repeated. What I took away from the day was:-
1) I now know the buyers I am aiming my bags and accessories at.
2) I know which types of events my pieces will sell best at
3) Next time don't, don't forget the sewing I had put aside to take with me as after ten minutes I was bored rigid!
So back to the creating in time for the fair booked for next month.
