  • Help to find shows

    Hi Everybody,

    I hope you are all having a good year so far.

    I am new to the forum, but not to the craft scene. I have been working at outdoor shows and in shopping centres for the past 10ish years.

    I am sick of the rising prices of the shows and centres and am desperately trying to find small local shows to work at. Anything from 1 to 14 days at a time. My only criteria is that I need electricity.

    The main part of my business is now based on personalised (embroidered) childrens products, (although adults like my towels too)! If space allows I also sell jewellery, dragons, fairies, pewter badges and stuff!

    Can anybody suggest anything local to me ie. within about 60 miles of Croydon?

    Thankyou.

    hi

    hello and . Sorry but can't help with the fairs but I should think you'll get an answer shortly. Maybe have a look at the UK fairs elsewhere on the forum.

                Working out pricing, Any ideas?

                Hi everyone
                I'm Angie and I have enjoyed knitting, crochet and the odd bit of cross stitch for years.

                I currently belong to a group of friends (known as Foolish Friends) who are all keen on traditional crafts, music, song and dance (and in promoting the same wherever possible). We all enjoy different craft interests.

                What we do find really confusing, now we are trying to market our goods is pricing. On visiting Craft Fairs there does seem to be a big difference in pricing for similar items. We would be interested in knowing how people price hand made items, or how they estimate prices. We are only just starting to think about having a stall at a craft fair (we are actually organising one on 22 November, at Lostock Hall High School, Lostock Hall, near Preston)

                Would appreciate anyone's input, and this seems a wonderfully friendly site.

                Many thanks
                Angie

                  Dr Stu is running the "Misty Moon" fair in SE London in November - there's a thread in the Craft Fairs UK section, or PM me if you can't find it!
