  • how much?

    A question for you seasoned fair folk (ooops not calling you all carnies!!! you know what i mean )

    How many bracelets , necklaces etc should I take ? Im not sure what to expect at all

    I know you might say more the merrier but you guys must take a set number I dont want to have to attach a trailor to my 4 x 4 to cart the 10,000 items of jewellery lol ( mind you if I sold that many it'd be great but might need to grow another 6 arms first )

    No. of items

    When I first started doing fairs I set up a table at home & then took whatever no. of things looked good. You don't want to crowd your table or people will find it difficult to see anything clearly.
    I don't usually take spares as I am of the opinion if I sell everything on my table I'll be quite happy to shut up shop & go home!

    Good luck

        I always take spares so if a gap comes up I can put something else out. On Sunday I sold a necklace and earring set that wasn't on display at all, the lady asked if I had any more in different colours to what was on show and luckily I did! Selina

          i always try to take as much as i can manage, it's irritating if you have to cart it all home again but if you are busy you can fill in the gaps. also i do sell things that aren't on display e.g.

          2 weeks ago i sold a picture that i didn't even have on my stall, i had it leaning up against the back propping something up and 3 people asked about it so i figured i'd put a price on it and it sold!

          And then last week i sold something else that i didn't have on display but the person had remembered it from a previous stall and come back to ask about it!

          Obviously don't overload your stall (or yourself!) but i figure it's usually better to have the stuff with you then at least you have chance of selling it!

          good luck!

              holy moly! do you really have 10,000 items made up?

              I have a fair in a few weeks and I have about 10, so far!
