    Watch out world Swirly is going BIG TIME!

    Craft fairs are fun and really quite adictive. I'm sure we'll all have loads of advice for you just ask!!

      Congrats. You will love it. Just go with the flow and don't panic. Make sure you have plenty of change and take plenty of food. You end up spending more on grub than you do making money.

      Cheers.

                That's brilliant news

                Make sure you have plenty of change and business cards, and practise setting out the stall - trust me, its worth it so you run a smooth operation on the day.

                Get some good display items - you want the display to be on several levels.

                I've also found it helpful to be chatty with customers and other stall holders

                  Well Done Swirlyarts, you're ahead of me. I'm still waiting for insurance quotes and need to take photos of my "stuff" before i can book and hopefully be accepted by Jules at the Exeter Craft Fairs in August.

                  Very excited though and very, very scared.......

                    Great!!

                    now the panic starts - have I got enough stock, have I got too much stock, are my prices too high, too low and so it goes on......

                    I love doing craft fairs though, even the ones we didn't make any money at!! I was running a caft unit last year so didn't do any fairs. Have really missed them and will get a couple again this year!! Love the social side of them!!

                      Good luck with your craft fair.... don't panic, I'm sure you'll enjoy it. I've enjoyed the ones I've done.

                        Location?

                        So then, where is your first craft fair?! I'm hoping to do my first in October too, and as we are pretty close location wise I'm wondering if we'll get to meet!!!!

                        Only cos it seems like everyone else gets to meet up and have a good laff!

                        Good luck anyway - I'm already worrying too about mine!

                              Good luck - I'm sure you will enjoy it. Even when I moan about some I go to, I wouldn't stop going for anything. It's great fun, and yes, quite addictive....
