  • Having a moan!

    Hi everyone! I'm having a moan!!! Over the past few weeks I have been busy making lots of Christmas cards only to get a letter at the last minute saying that the Craft Fair I was looking forward to had been over booked!!!! They sent an apology and my money back but I am so disappointed!!!!! I was really looking forward to it!! Someone put a post on here about a Craft Fair in December but I haven't heard anything more about it so here I am surrounded by Christmas Cards. Ready for next year!!!!!! I suppose I can use some of them myself!!! I have tidied all my card 'stuff' up as all this has somehow made me lose interest but I am sure I will find it again. I suppose I can concentrate on the on going extension saga and Christmas now!!!!! Sue xx

    Thats not nice Sue, Sorry to hear that, but dont let it deter you from doing what you love. Where about are you and I will do a bit of searching for a craft fair in your area? It would be such a shame not to sell your cards now following all your hard work!

    is it Little Neston in Cheshire?

                  Oh what a disappointment for you, after all that work - I'd have been gutted too.

                  Don't let it get you down, could you do an Open House, i'm doing one in a couple of weeks cos I can't get to another craft fair before Christmas and then any cards I've got left I'll use myself.

                  Hope you get something sorted

                      Oh dear Sue that is terrible!

                      A lot of the schools are having their craft fairs now - Samuel's school is tomorrow afternoon (Friday?!) and I know that some nursing homes / rest homes have them too - so you could try those?

                      Or pack them up and use them next year as a last resort, knowing, smuggly, that you are almost sorted for cards next year!

                          Poor you. I know how you feel I had an event cancelled a week ago. Luckily I hadn't made too much extra stock iykwim but it did mean I lost out on the money I was expecting to take that day.

                          Fingers crossed you find something else.

                            Why not ring a few local schools and ask if you can set up a table in their hall for an hour - to catch the mums when they collect the kids. You never know, they may agree to it if you're giving them something for their funds.

                            Or you could ask at your local hospital or hospice. Its very popular at our local hospital and there's even a waiting list to get one there.

                            A hospice may let you have a table for a few hours for residents and visitors to purchase.

                            I know it might seem like a lot of work setting up a table for only an hour or so but anything is worth a try and so many organisations are happy to help locals out that are going to donate to their charity.

                            Anything is worth a try.

                              What a pig that is! Good luck in finding another fair for this year - but like you said at least next year you won't have to work so hard to get them done if nothing much happens this year!
