I would say definitely yes take them, as long as you have got room for them. Its half-way til xmas already, and people like to be organised! I dont think it would scare people off, it gives people another option for something to spend their money on :mf:

Yes take them, you don't have to fill the stall with them, but if you have a small section you can always get more out if an interest is shown.

This is a difficult one and Im not sure.
I took some Christmas cards to a craft fair last year in begin of September and hear alot of people saying they were nice but it was fair too early to but them. However a few weeks later they were selling well !!!!

However someone I work with asked me if I was taking any Christmas cards with me to a craft fair in June - I said no. She surgested that I did as if people are sending cards to places such as Oz they need to post them really really early.

If I were you a I would take them and put a few out, maybe in a basket and test the market. You got nothing to loose. Maybe put a notice on it saying you can never be to earlier or how many days it is to Christmas to get them thinking.

Sorry if Ive gone on a bit

I'd have some in a basket on their own, just in case - cos you never know!

I've got a fair in July and won't be taking any then - mainly because the table will be smaller than what I'm used to, but the October one I will be doing as I sold quite a few last year in October.

Hope this helps!:D
