  • Last few stalls available for London PF Convention, Sept 27th

    The nice people at the Pagan Federation London are holding a convention this year, after the success of last year's event. It's attended by lots of pagan folks and new age sorts of people, and they have a small number of traders there.

    I attended this event last year, and did quite well there - the attendees are friendly, welcoming, and typically looking for something handmade, different and interesting. There are just one or two stands left, I believe.


    They say : "Called Gaia-Fortuna, it will be held at the University of London Union (ULU) in Malet St, London, on Saturday, September 27, 2008 from 12noon to 9pm. This is the 2nd annual PFL convention of the "new series", with Opening Ceremony, talks and workshops by many experts on pagan/ magical subjects, Closing Ritual at 7pm and then 2 hours of pure social (7pm-9pm) to network, chill & so******e afterwards (by popular demand). Beginners and experienced pagans welcome..."

    I believe that the stall rate is £50 for the day, including a table, chairs and electricity. You can reach the organiser, Mani, at [email protected] or on 077689 41373.

    I haven't any connection to this organisation or event (other than that I'll have a stall there again this year), but enjoyed last year's day and did well there, and would like to see them do even better with this year's!

      BTW - I lied! The title is misleading, I'm sorry - it's not on the 25th, but the 27th, the Saturday...

                  Hiya

                  I'm a pyrographer, making all sorts of items from wood & leather. You can see some examples on my website and Flickr account below. That does include a selection of more esoteric items, such as altars, chalices and wands, and items with pagan themes, but I make all sorts of other things too!

                  If you want a stall at tomorrow's event, you could call Mani up (his number is on the PF webpage, I believe) and ask him if he has any left for a cash payment on the day, but I don't know if he will still have space at this late stage. Or, of course, you could always come along to the evnt this year and see if you fancy a stall next year!
                  Cheers,
                  Scorch
