  • I want to sell my items at a craft fair, but i need some advice...

    Hi everyone

    I make fabric breast feeding necklaces and I want to start selling them at craft fairs. I have been told I need insurance, that seems quite straight forward. But I also have been told I need 'product testing'. My local craft fair organiser said i should contact Trading Standards, I looked on their website but all they offer is consumer complaints help lines.

    Any advice would be much appreciated!

      I have done quite a few craft fairs in my time. Most of them has insurance included, but if you need to get it, its pretty easy and once you have it. Its valid all year. I used to use to hunt out nearby craft shows. I also used to look at my hometown Tourist Information website as they usually have a list of local events. Good luck!

        All craft fairs have to have insurance for the event itself but this does not cover the stallholders, who should have both public and product liability insurance.
