  • Craft Fair in Stockport!

    Hi there, I am new to this forum so please forgive me for 'jumping straight in', but I have no time to lose..

    After searching for a local craft fair to sell my wares at, and not finding any I have decided to organise a smallish one in Stockport...

    I have found a venue and am now putting feelers out to see what sort of interest there would be with regard to crafters wanting stalls.

    I am sorry to be so vague but this is literally my first tentative step into it. Once I have some idea as to whether crafters would be interested I will then work out costings etc..

    So, I guess the point to this thread is to ask if there are any crafters (genuine only please, no wholesale buyer inners) that could possibly be interested in booking a table at my craft fair in Stockport in September (on a saturday!)..

    many thanks

      Hi

      I may be interested. Would you be advertising in the local press? I know this would put the price of the stalls up, but I think it's worth it as this seems to help get the customers in.

      Thanks!

        Hi MWLdesigns & Wendy!

        I will indeed be advertising it in the local press Wendy, and anywhere else that will allow me to

        I have been putting feelers out and so far you two and 1 other lady are the only crafters I have had interested. I am really surprised as I thought there would be more crafters interested!

        Well, I am going to go ahead with it anyway, so heres hoping enough crafters want stalls!

        I will add more details here as and when I have confirmed the location/date etc

                    I'd be very interested and I think my friend would be too. I'm in Stockport, so if you need a hand with anything let me know x

                    eta: we both make jewellery, both very different from each other lol x

                          YAY

                          that's a great response.. thank you!

                          Right then , I am going to plunge in and go ahead!

                          It will be a small affair around 20 or so stalls, (if I can drum up 20 crafters!). I am open to selected gifts too (sorry), I have 1 usborne books organiser that I see no harm in offering a stall to for example. I would love to get as many 'genuine' crafters as possible but if I do come up short nearer the time then I will open to gifts (I will be selective though)

                          I will get the venue booked, check regarding insurances etc and then I will have a definate date and prices.

                          Thanks
