Christmas Fair

Now I know there is always talk about only going to proper 'Craft Fairs' but the Christmas village fair I attended today and which I have been going to for over 30 years is very good. The village hall is picturesque, well decorated, happy Christmas songs playing, aroma of mince pies and bacon rolls and not to mention the friendly stallholders and customers alike. A typical Hampshire village where everyone knows everybody. Approx 20 stalls and I did very well, in fact very happy with my sales today. 

My stall, forgot the battery tea lights for the houses. Just typical but still sold one have already added the box to the stock for next weeks fair. Took the pic's on my new iphone and must admit am quite happy with the results, did miss the anti shake though and perhaps not as clear as the camera but mighty handy.

One thing I have learnt over the years is that prices need to be pitched right and this year my stall was full of goodies £5.00 and under. A few of my frame clutch bags for £10.00 of which I sold one. The best sellers where the Christmas Tree earrings for £4.00, maybe it was getting change for a fiver but sold all apart from 1 pair. Guess what I will be making this week. The mini bags also went down well.

Two beautiful Golden retrievers came round part way through the girl about 2.5 years and a boy puppy (almost as big as the girl) 13 weeks, missed mine and wondered what he was up to with DH and apparently this is the result:

Hope you have a happy creating week and will report on next weeks whole day in Alton.
