    I'd like to know too, if anyone has any ideas. I'd like a really cheap one to get me started with!

      I can't find the thread at the moment but there are a couple of threads on the forum about this - if you do a search for insurance then they will come up! The prices quoted were very good too.

        Hi, I am currently shopping around for public liability and product liability insurance at the moment to cover me for wedding fayres and possibly some craft fairs. The best quote I have got so far is from GM Imber, they sort of have a website but its only their contact details. I rang them (Tel: 0870 606 6668) and they quoted me £50 for 5 million of cover for both, which seems incredibly cheap. Unfortunately I am still waiting five days later for the promised information to come so dont know if there is some nasty clause that makes it not as good value.
        They also quoted me to cover my stock and display equipment at shows but that was a lot more expensive (something like 120.00 to cover me for £500 worth of stock) so not sure whether to go with that at the moment.

        Hope this helps

          I would just go for public liability and be careful how you pack your stock! I've paid out for some ridiculous insurance in the past, and really all you need is 2million public liability. Imber's seem to be the standard insurers, but weigh up the possibilities of 'damaging' your displays & stock, and £120 looks crazy!

                  I use Ian W Wallace Craft Insurance as I have a small studio that I use. I couldn't get anything from one broker and the other wanted to charge me 800 quid!!! It's only one room, not a mansion.
