Well as this is the last day of the Olympics I didn’t expect the craft fair at Mannington Hall to be busy but honestly it was so quiet I was able to have a conversation for an hour and a half with a fellow stall holder without interruption! Never mind, the people in my space were lovely – they all knew each other from the Norfolk craft fair circuit and Brian – he of the birds below, is going to send me a list of craft fairs that he rates. Which is kind of him :)
The sketch is duff today!
The next few images give you a flavour of my stall and the general absence of people!!
I more than halved my usual prices (on stock only – not the personalised things) and didn’t sell any of it. It wasn’t the right audience. The only genuine fan customer I had was my friend Helen, also the fantastic chef of the Greedy Goose at Mannington Hall who bought this daisy bunting. These take a whole day to make – actually longer if you factor in cutting out the wood. They cost £29.50 and I have one left. I love them but they are bonkers as a retail item. If you factor in time you make a loss really! So if any of you want the one remaining at that price with free delivery let me know!
And finally …
Answers below please! I am going to put together a few kits for sale on my site and notonthehighstreet.com/moobaacluck with instructions and ideas for decoration. I wonder if that is the environment needed? I think it is :)
