  • Low Cost Pitches - Northampton Xmas Gifts Fair

    NORTHAMPTON CHRISTMAS GIFTS FAIR 29/11/2008


    A quality Christmas Gifts fair is being held in Northampton on Saturday 29th November 2008. We are interested in hearing from anyone who has either their own arts/crafts small business or sells products (not neccessarily hand made) that would have mass appeal at Christmas time - see examples below. We are looking for sellers of NEW items only (not 2nd hand or bric-a-brac).

    Examples of table cost:

    6ftx2ft trestle table = £15 + 10% day takings (to The Lowdown)
    or
    2 x 6ftx2ft trestle tables (v.ltd availability) = £25 + 10% day takings.

    The cost of pitches is minimal & the event is 'in support of the Lowdown Charity' for Young People. Your £15 or £25 (pre event) helps cover venue & pre-publicity costs whilst the 10% of takings (on day) is to The Lowdown - a very worthy cause. NB: The organisers will not profit in any way from this event & have offered their services freely.

    Stallholders will have a high degree of exclusivity & there will be minimal duplication of offers. There will be an estimated 30+ traders participating (plus there are a few small art/craft businesses within the venue itself who trade every weekend too).


    What we are still looking for: cosmetics, xmas decorations, t-shirts, jumpers, hats & scarves, socks, chocolates / confectionary, soft toys, candles & oils, organics, fair trade, youth fashion, perfume & aftershave, xmas music, gadgets & gizmos, cakes, calendars, gift packs, stocking fillers & more...


    NB: If you think you are selling something that would make a great Christmas Gift & would prove popular on the day (even if it's not mentioned above) drop me a line - we are considering all options!

    PLACES ARE FILLING QUICKLY SO DON'T DELAY!!!

    The event is being hosted in a large, modern, high profile, town centre, indoors location - The Fishmarket Gallery. It will be well publicised (media,posters,flyers,radio) & well attended.

    INTERESTED?

    For more information or an application pack contact Richard @ Eskimo Entertainment.

    NB: Please indicate in your email what you are selling & provide pictures or web links if possible?

    We hope to hear from you soon!

        Gift Fair

        As the market is in the centre of northampton and the event is near to christmas will there be parking problems for visitors.

            Thanks for your questions

            Re: Parking - there are loads of parking options within 5 minutes walk - also the Mayorhold car park with over 1000 spaces is across the road from the venue so there won't be any issue with parking.

            Re: Other Events - in the past we have had Golf Days, Charity Dinners & huge Eurovision Song Contest Parties! Going forward we are looking to have a Spring Fair (March/April 2009) & a Fashion Fair (early Summer 2009). The Christmas Gifts Fair event is a mixture of arts/crafts plus other items that would be deemed suitable as Christmas gifts - in addition there are several small art/craft outlets within the Gallery itself. Hope to see you there!

              Stallholders Still Required... Do You Know Anyone?

              Hi

              We are still looking to fill the following gift areas in the next few days - can anyone help or does anyone have contacts I could get in touch with - I would guess they would ideally live within 1 hours drive of Northampton & have a good range of products that would sell well at Christmas!

              Including:

              HOMEMADE CANDLES & OILS/SCENTS (1 table)

              HOMEMADE CHRISTMAS CAKES, JAMS, PICKLES, PRESERVES (1 table)

              HANDMADE CHOCOLATES & FUDGE & SWEETS (2 tables)

              ORGANIC OR FAIRTRADE FOODS (1 table)

              BEANIES,HATS,SCARVES,SOCKS,JUMBERS (1 possibly 2 tables)

              CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS & XMAS CARD PACKS (1 table)

              PERFUMES OR COSMETICS (1 table)

              CALENDARS (floor space equivalent to 2 tables)

              & a couple more to be decided...

              I LOOK FORWARD TO YOUR SUGGESTIONS!
