    hello. I was wondering if anyone had sold painted furniture at craft fairs? I've booked a couple for spring and summer and was wondering what would go down well. Obviously the pieces have to be smallish to fit in but I'm struggling a bit with what things to try and sell. Would be very grateful for any help.
    Great site, first time I've been on.

    Can I suggest something?
    Have your 'proper' stuff for a lovely display to draw customers in. I think that as it'll be a purchase that needs a bit of thinking they may hesitate to buy straight away.
    But you need to get your table/pitch money back so have a collection of 'cheap' small impulse buy things. Small mirrors with painted backs, ditto for hairbrushes and maybe combs, painted spoons, small boxes, coasters and key rings. When you sell a small thing put you card, advert or catalogue in the bag and hopefully the customer will seek you out later.

    I always found decorative painted bookmarks to be great sellers. You can paint onto paper and then enclose into a see through/self seal bookmark cover or you can put them through a laminator and trim to shape, then add a hole for a ribbon to go through at one end. Otherwise you could personalise them with names on the day.
