  • 3D/2D fairs in Scotland

    Anyone an exhibitor with 3D/2D? They seem to be big events in good venues and attracting lots of stalls. Unfortunately their list of exhibitors is not yet live on their website, which makes me slightly suspicious seeing as they've been going since 1981.
    Here's the link.

    they never had exhibitor list on website. I know people who with them, big costs but same as lots fairs some have been amaaaaaazing, some have been awwwful and made not even their stall money back. In their favour they are well establisehd and do good advertising. Very cliquey though and have heard quite a few bad vibes about them. Worth a go though if you can get in as they are choosey.

        Yup! Very cliquey and a bit snobby too! They dont accept anything that can be made 'sitting in front of a tv' (i met a guy who worked for them). But its that thing where the fact they only accept very good stuff makes you want to join them lol! I havnt bothered yet as i am not quite there with my silversmithing, but i know they wont accept any of the beaded stuff i sell.

          but saying that theyre standards are slipping as i wandered round the christmas show last year and there were a few jewellerys with elastic bracelets, tigertail necklaces etc, exactly the sort of made in front of tv stuff that they hate.

            I was with 3d2d for a few years, but only did about 3 craft fairs. I couldn't afford to do the bigger ones, so can't comment on how successful they are. The ones I did were in the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, and I was lucky if I made back the cost of my stall. (however I was only selling cards, so would have had to have sold a lot!) Very few people turned up even though it was a great location, right in the centre of Glasgow. They stopped doing these ones (wise decision) and I think only now do a Christmas one there. Let me know if you want any more info.

              Well, I have contacted them twice and they did not even bother to reply to my requests fro some more information! Not even an acknowledgement of my query. The only time that I can say that this has happened and I was quite surprised as a polite "no thanks" to my request for a stall at one of their events would have sufficed! How ill mannered they are

                Thanks all for the info. The website does have a slightly snooty tone to it, like we'll decide if you are good enough for us!
                Think I will look elsewhere for now and try and go along to one of their events to see what's on show.
