  • Just got back from doing a school fayre

    Hi !

    I have just got back from having a stall at my son's school summer fayre ! It was frantic as it was only on for two hours and I spent most of it being surrounded by loads of people. Anyway I sold 15 necklaces, a couple of rings and a couple of phone charms ! I am well pleased but very hot !

      Thanks Jane !

      It was fantastic but everything seemed such a blur !

      If anybody hasn't tried doing a school fayre, I would highly recommend it especially if the weather is good. Such a good atmosphere and all also makes people spend more !

            Sounds like a fun couple of hours!
            I wish our school had a fayre currently we just have a" fun day" where parents donate tat and theres nothing really to buy.
            Perhaps I should try and persuade them to have a proper fayre.

                Well done, that's excellent news.

                I am doing a summer fayre at our local special needs school on 4th July. I'm hoping I will do well. It's the first one they have had there so we are not sure how well the parents will support it, but hopefully, with good advertising (which I will be helping with) there should be plenty of public coming along.

                My children's head teacher is a real pain though, they have a very well established summer fayre last Saturday of June, she has two regular crafters, one doing jewellery and one who makes concrete animals for the garden, some pta members (well me and another mum who is organising the 4th July do) keep asking the head if we can have some more craft stalls as there is plenty of room but the miserable moo keeps saying no!

                  Another thumbs up for fetes!

                  I've just come back from a fete too - a local village one near to me - I didn't expect much in sales, as we were really there to show our car & bike and summon up some publicity for our race team, but I took well over £100, and the stall was only £6

                  I'm a bit sunburnt, and still have the cannons from the military re-enactment rinning in my ears, but happy nonetheless

                    what a great days work for you!

                    I have a school fair at the end of the month, hope I do as well as that!

                    (although I need to find the motivation to make stuff first hey?)

                          Yep I did ours as well today. They were actually car boot pitches for a fiver but I took one to sell my crafts & was very busy, best fair I've had in ages, I always find school fairs tend to do better than craft fairs these days!

                            I think that after yesterdays experience I will find it hard doing another craft fayre. Its a totally different experience. I get such a buzz out of seeing all the happy people at a school fayre.

                              I have one coming up and am nervous about it to be honest. Most of my jewellery is crystal so I am having to make up cheaper jewellery for the kids and am hoping to get some parties from the adults.

                              Could I be cheeky and ask what your price ranges were for the school fair? And what did you take?
