  • Northumbria County Show

    Just back from the Northumbria County Show.
    Sneaked over the border when no one was looking and had a great show.
    Massive thank you to Silly Old Bear for coming to visit me at the craft tent.
    It is so nice being a member of the forum and making new friends I really appreciated her coming to visit.

    My things got a really possitive responce and hopefully will get new buisness from my wee trip futher afield. Plus a now know where Corbridge / Hexham are as I have only ever seen the signs for them on the A68.

    Cheers Janice

      Glad you enjoyed your country show; hope you get loads of new business from it. It's all about 'networking', isn't it?

      I did 3 days at Chipping Steam Fair this weekend and, like you, got a positive response to my work, and loads of new ideas!
      Unfortunately, we were in a massive marquee and the wind really got up!!! We thought we were going to lose it at one point. Very scary!!!

      And I'd hate to see what the carbon footprint was of that show - jet engines, traction engines, helicopter, ............ some people had to go home early because the fumes were making them ill. Shan't be doing it again next year!
      Life's not a race, do take it slower. Hear the music before the song is over.

            Glad you had a good day!. I was going to come over and see you aswell, but on Saturday morning I got this begging phone call from a friend who runs a local craft fair at Lanercost Priory saying she had been let down and would I please be able to take a stall on Monday. Me being the sort of person who finds it hard to say NO, I agreed!!!. Although I really wish I hadnt bothered. Lots of people came through the doors but not many seemed to be buying and I didnt take very much all day. Typical - you try to do a good turn.... Never mind, I was cheered up when I got home to find a nice order from my website, so the chinese was on me last night!.
            Do you think you are going to do Corbridge again next year?

              I think I might but it was a long day. When I saw sillyold bear I hadn't taken much and thought it was going to be a disaster but it all happened in the last hour I got a box of buisness cards away so hopefully will get some comebacks as well.

              Will you go next year ?
