  • cost of table

    Hi
    Does anybody think that £45 is a bit expensive for a table at a school craft fair. I will add this is a private school.

      At a private school it would depend on you item prices. If you are selling high end you prob will get your money back.

        Woah! Yes!
        My next fair is at a school (not private) and I am paying 10 pounds plus donating a raffle.
        Unless you are sure that you could make a profit on it, I would avoid it

          Have paid £35 at a private school which is enough I think. I found last year that it wasn't always the private schools where I made the most money - all our money goes on paying the fees!!

            Plus the people with all the money like to hang on to their pennies (probably why they have so many!)

              Nothing left after paying school fees I expect.

                  I don't do fairs but it does sound a little excessive for a school fair.

                  I used to do school fairs a few years ago (with bought in goods before I started crafting) and all they ever asked was for "a reasonable donation". The best one I did, I took over £300 and when I offered them £30 (wondering if I was being mean) they were gobsmacked - in a good way.

                  I'm doing a ladies xmas shopping night in a few weeks and they've left it up to the sellers what they donate to the charity, just stating that they expect us to be fair in comparison with what we take.

                    wow yeah personally i think that's a bit steep, the only one I've ever considered paying that much for is one of our Highland Games and they get thousands of visitors at it every year.

                    School fairs I do generally charge 10% of your takings, a donation or a prize for their raffle. I personally wouldn't do one that charged that much.

                      I've done a few school fairs over the last couple of years and none have charged more that £10 for a table. £45 for a school event seems very excessive.

                          Yes, seems like a lot, private school or not. I am doing a school fair in December and they are charging £10 or 10% of takings - whichever is the higher - that will be £10 then!!

                            I agree with Ifor-Jones, private or not, £45 is a lot for any school to ask for, I would hate to see their maths program.
