      Yes I've had a look, maybe I will check again, but there never seems to be anything in my area, Chipping Sodbury apparently has them regular by its too late now as they are all booked up by the regulars, loads for schools, but I'm not very experienced and bit nervous for them, will let you know tho if I find anything.

        Hi,

        Unfortunately I won't be organsing anymore craft fairs until next year but you're welcome to sign up to my mailing list and I'll let you know about future fairs. www.lovely-fairs.co.uk

        I think the Bristol Harbourside Market might still have space available. I've had a stall there before and have one booked for 10th December. It might be a little chilly outside this time of year but there is a good passing trade.

        I also know that Magpies & I were looking for stallholders and reduced their stall prices to £11. - Also in Bristol!

        Good Luck, Laura x

            It's worth being proactive and contacting organisers of any upcoming fairs you spot. After a chockers November December was looking empty so I browsed www.stallfinder.co.uk .....last night , around midnight and sent off a couple of emails. I've just back heard from one. One of her people has dropped out and I've got her table.

              My fair on the 10th Dec was really nice, I would love all of them to be like that, not too big, happy atsmosphere, nice people. Unlike the awful one last Sat, no music, cold, depressing, what annoys me is that you pay your money and expect the advertising to be done, but no one hardly anyway-turned up, it was pathetic, easy money for some people i suppose, glad to say not everyone are like this, i am definately going to do more background on an event in future!

                Lillylines - Out of interest where was the awful fair last Saturday?

                Definitely a good idea to check out an event before you go ahead too!

                I've only organised one fair so far but am looking at possible dates/venues for next year and am open to suggestions of where people would like them to be in and around Bristol. You can see dates and leave suggestions here

                Thanks, Laura

                      The fairs I did last year were a bit disapointing, so i don't know what to do this year.
                      I dd one at the Bath & west in december, and a ladies night in weston super mare, and a couple of school ones, people just didn't seem to be parting with there hard earned pennies.

                        I know, I had a couple of rubbish ones too! I do enjoy the face to face selling. Most people are lovely too. Am trying to be positive and enjoying what I do, which is important, once it gets to be a drag, then you may as well give up!
                        Just visited your shop too, very nice, will pop you in my circle later!x

                          Hi Lily, If you ask google:- Fayres in South Gloucestershire, School Fayres in South Gloucestershire etc, wherever you want to sell, what was it you are selling, i am a phoenix-trader and i sometimes host an event in Hanham, look on Stallfinder and netmums (you do need to register).

                            There's an organisation called southwestfairs who organise fairs in that area. I've never done one with them, although they're doing a bead fair in Yate which I'm thinking of going to, but I sometimes see their advert on the right hand side of the forum.
