  • Opinions please - Craft Fair in February for Valentine's Day?

    Hi everyone,

    Just wondering what everyone thoughts were on having a craft fair in February in time for Valentine's Day?

    Good idea or too early in the year?

    All opinions very much appreciated!

    Thanks,

    Catch-22 isn't it? It's the first occasion of the year, but the only buyers will be couples. I thought I would do well when I was doing floral designs, all the hearts & pink stuff, but it was the contemporary stuff that sold, which I did all year round. I think you may have more chance if you don't try too hard to cater for the fluffy market - the big boys have got that sewn up - but just give the buyer something different and classy for a pressy. I almost sound as if I know what I'm talking about don't I?

    Hahahaha.....................I'm soooo sorry...........I've just looked at your site - it's ALL pink & fluffy isn't it?!!!!!............well, you know what I meant!

      I agree I think it would be really hard..

      It would really depend on the timing and advertising of the fair.. Who would it be directed at and will it be a "valentines" fair or just a fair close to valentines day ?

        Hi Fiona,

        I used to do a farmers market a few years back and what I found to happen (for me) was that I had all sorts of jewellery with hearts etc and it was for most part those who had forgotten that were buying in blind panic. I was a god send for the male traders at that time................that was 2 days before Valentines Day.

        I wasn't there for a Valentines Day event but I was able to take advantage of it.................. I honestly don't know if I would take part in an Valentines Craft Fair if that's what you had in mind. As said " the big boys have it sewn up"

          Hi,

          Thanks for all your opinions!

          I wasn't planning on a fair in February as I did think it was too early in the year.

          Just thought I'd get a second opinion from other crafters.

          Should have the date for a fair in April shortly and I'll be focusing on booking venues for Christmas fairs next year!

          Thanks,

          Fiona
