  • First Craft Fair Today - Really nervous!

    I have my first craft fair today and I am so nervous and worrying that people won't like my things as much as I do! I've spent the last month frantically sorting things out and have finished my website ready for handing out my business cards - but I didn't expect to be this scared!

    I'm sure you will be fine an your stuff looks really pretty.

    Where is it today, I might pop by with the kids if its close.

    Just be calm, and think of it all as a learning experience...words from pro...HA Ha. I've done a whole 2 fairs so far!

    Good luck

              Have a great day and don't get scared. Have fun and talk to as many customers & stallholders as you can - you will learn loads from them!

              Hope you sell loads and really enjoy yourself.

                oh I know how you feel I still have days of doubt but the key to getting over them is to do what you are doing and put yourself out there. Also, I figure that as long as I love creating what I do that will come across in your work. You won't please everyone as no one can we all have different tastes, good job otherwise the world would be a boring place. I am sure you have planned well so just go set up and enjoy it. Good Luck! x

                  go for it and have a great day, dont put pressure on yourself to sell masses, think of it as a day out and a trial run and you will have a fab time! (Hope you do sell well though!)

                    good luck for today.

                    Let us know how you get on.

                    One day I might have a stall rather than visit.

                      Thanks all, for your best wishes!

                      Yesterday went so well I am still trying to get over it! I absolutely loved it too talking to all those people about something that I love doing! What better way to spend a day

                      I sold lots of things - I was quite surprised with what sold best as I would have thought my earrings would go well, but I only sold 4 pairs, but sold lots of bracelets and rings. I took 3 orders for rings and earrings. Lots of people took my cards away and one also said that her friend organises fayres and would love me to have a stall there as my stuff was so nice! I even ended up making a really good profit!

                      Probably just beginners luck - but I don't care as I'm still buzzing! Can't wait for the next one now!!

                            Many congratulations Jen!

                            I am always surprised with what sells at fairs! I can almost completely sell out of one design and spend ages making more only to sell none of them at the next show!!!

                            That is all part of the fun, however - trying to stay one step ahead!

                            Craft fairs really are great fun and even if it is quiet, there is usually some joy to be found around!!

                              Well done Jen - it's great when things go well. You get a real buzz and feel so proud of your work and what you have achieved.
