  • Craft fairs in Midlands? Anyone interested?

    Hi,
    Just really putting out feelers as to whether there is any crafters in the midlands, esp Coventry/Leamington area, who are interested in taking part in a craft fair?

    I have been attending fairs for over a year and will be attending The Royal Show at Stoneleigh Park this year, along with Stratford Waterside Bank holiday market in August, and the Warwick Folk Festival.
    I am now considering running one in this area as they always seem to be everywhere but the midlands area or very expensive to attend.

    Considering the Methodist Central Hall in Coventry City centre for perhaps a christmas fair, as its location is perfect for town shoppers etc.

    Would be happy to hear from anyone interested or any ideas for where to hold the fair etc?

    Thanks,
    Laura

    I'd be interested in a table in the Midlands. Katian Krafts also mught be , but she'll spot your thread and reply herself, I expect!

    I'm a card maker and I also make one-off beach/ tote bags: no two the same!

    My daughter makes bookmarks and cards - we would share a table if one was available. Trouble is she'd want to share any of my profit too!

          I might be interested in being a shopper at a crafts fair in the midlands... I don't sell my crafts just do the quilling as a hobby... Would be on the look out for Birthday/Christmas presents so if you make sure there are some possible things for that on the stalls that would be good.

                        New Information on Craft fair

                        Hey everyone, thanks for letting me know your interest.

                        I have just found out the Coventry City council are organising city centre market style stalls from end of Nov up until Christmas (like the bath markets). The stalls will be in the main shopping area/precinct, where as my craft fair location would be the next street/area along.

                        Not really sure what to do..as I could just hold my own market stall with them, but I really wanted create an opportunity for local crafters to have a stall too! mmm...difficult decision.

                        So either just have to go for it at the same time, or organise it for mid november..Although do people really start christmas shopping then? I think that it would be busier in December...

                        Let me know your thoughts..

                          Think mid november would be fine for a craft fair. Have found in the past that some of the December ones are a bit late for people!

                          I may be interested too, I make americana style wooden decorations, plaques etc. At the moment xmas craft fairs are dependant on getting life up and runnng again after just moving.
