You can never tell with fairs and selling events. As they say in the investment adverts ‘past performance does not predict future returns’. Just because the last event in a venue was supergreat and full of folks doesn’t mean it will be hunkydory this time. Oh the disappointment of all that making effort and setting up a stall only to see the tumble weed rolling across the open expanse of floor and no shoppers or perhaps just a student looking for ideas for his next college project.
Which bring us to the Fairy Tale Fair…………which was so superbly run by Claire Montgomery Designs, so packed with interesting people to talk to, so full of customers who ‘got’ TheBigForest and bought lots of things and so stupendously successful that we are two happy bright bears today! We will do another post about some of the wonderful makers you should know, but for now we are just posting some pictures of the fair.
Setting up before we opened
Tea and cake
A constant stream of customers (I had to wait until it had quietened down a bit before I could take photos!)
