My first and possibly last craft fair!!!

Juliette manning our stall, waiting for the crowds to pour in and buy our lovely goods!

For several weeks I've been so busy making things for my first craft fair. I was very worried that I wouldn't have enough to fill the table but in fact I had more than enough. I shared a table with a young friend, Juliette who makes lovely, original cards. A friend, Ruth, came to help us.

Sold.... one bag and one Pogglemonster. Profit £4!!! To be fair though we soon realized it wasn't really a craft fair. Someone at a table nearby was selling very colourful imported African baskets ideal for the beach at £20 - £30. Most people converged on her stall, bought a basket and didn't bother to look at other stalls. Everywhere you looked there were women with baskets over their shoulder!!! The seller obviously did very well.... I just hope that the Africans got a fair deal for their handy work!


  1. Where was the fair Lynne? If I'd have known I'd have popped in to say hi!

  2. PS... I have to admit that I had some lovely positive comments and someone suggested I should contact Terence Conran who might be interested in selling my goods!!!!!

  3. Hi Abby.... I did reply to your comment but it seems to have got lost somewhere! It was Taunton School Summer Fair and it would have been lovely to have seen you. If there's a next time, I'll let you know :)


  4. Oh yes, please do let me know! Do you even know HOW to contact Terence Conran?! Would be cool if he loved your work!

  5. I don't think Terence Conran would be remotely interested in my work Abby :D
