  • Countdown to Dundee Flower & Food Festival

    I'm off to Dundee to set up my stall at the above event.

    The big day starts tomorrow.

    It's a 3 day event with over 26,000 visitors so I'll need lots of luck.

    I've never done such a huge event and I'm really looking forward to it, but a little nervous.

    If anyone is going, please come and say hello - I will be in the Lifestyle marquee (the floral hall marquee) - Lazy Daisy Glass is the name.
    Take care

        Best of luck both of you but remember the goods you make are very good and have pride in your products. Keep the pride in your voice when you talk about them and try not to show nervousness to your customers (yes I know just hard that is) as they will pick it up and take it the wrong way i.e. that you dont think your products are good enough. Soon it wont be act as all nervousness will simply drop away and you will start to enjoy yourselves.

        I was told this on my very first Craft Fair by my daughter who helps me sell at fairs. Well she is actually my driver, my unloader and carrrier as well as my helper lol. But seriously I was surprised at her words and hated admitting to her afterwards that she was right. So it works and now we start every show with her telling me again just how good my products are and how proud she is of me.

        So once more best of luck.

              Update - Dundee Festival

              Thanks for all your words of wisdom.

              I enjoyed the festival and was placed between two great traders and we had lots of fun.

              Met some good people but have to say I was expecting more sales.

              I was a bit disappointed with the sales considering the amount of people who attended. I still made a profit and we had a good family weekend away.

              We stayed in a beautiful B & B in the country and my husband was fantastic looking after our daughter for the weekend.

              Back to the show.... I spent many hours making stock, but have to say I didn't need to go over board.

              It hasn't put me off, I will still be interested in attending again next year.

              What made my weekend was watching an artist, Daniel Campbell, from Glasgow painting at his stand a few feet away from me. I was hooked watching him work and he painted many works during the event. He worked in oils - and they were very bright. There was one particular painting that was calling for me. I asked my husband and he agreed that I should buy it. So I did.
              Take care
