  • Craft fayres: a throwback to the Middle Ages or just the middle-aged?

    I'll be attending one tomorrow. Is the pronunciation craft fay-er? Or just craft fair with a silent 'y'? I'd hate to make a fool of myself, let myself down. There's a lot riding on this. Even though they've sent me a Christmas food voucher lower margin of dainty little Norwegian spruces — redeemable to £3.50, I have actually laid out 17 quid in cold hard cash when all's said and done.

    Oh, I forgot. The electricity's thrown in. Now, that's pretty of the moment.

      Oddly enough, I know of crafts men and women who trade at Medieval Festivals - and yes, some are Middle Aged as well

      Best wishes

        Yes, these give one a good excuse to put on the wife's tights. Luckily my legs are one of my best features.

        Anyway, back to the Christmas craft fay-er I did today, yes, I redeemed my food voucher which got me a beaker of mulled wine, a mince pie, and a turkey 'n' cranberry roll. All reasonably adequate and a nice gesture. Only trouble was, on the sales front, my sight lines were ruined by someone with a pram at the entrance to my aisle with a teenager leaning up against it and another mother cradling and comparing her little bundle of joy. Worse, anyone entering the room was deterred from walking past this barricade of maternal bliss so I was left with a sum total of two customers.
        And, just as I was about to make a sale, one of their long-lost friends turns up: "Hiya, how's it going?", etc. I got there in the end. But I must admit these so-called craft fayres are a bit cramped, laid out like a mothers' meeting. Still, what's one expect these days for £17?
