I have mixed feelings about Craft Fairs or sales of Handmade goods.
I suppose that there are really good ones... like the Selvedge Christmas Fair (I went last week and it was wonderful!) but then they are understandably going to cost a lot to participate. But local fairs... usually involve a lot of standing around in draughty spaces and having to put up with a lot of tutting at the outrageous prices we dare charge for the items that have taken hours to make and then ultimately very few sales.
But I'm ever optimistic and I like to support local events and so this afternoon I'll be at a local school for two hours and then on Saturday morning I'll be in the Church (very draughty) for the morning.
When I booked a table at the school I was asked if I had Christmas items... no, not really! But I have obliged and made one or two bits and pieces...
Like these little book jackets. But I've not made too much because if they don't sell I'm stuck with them for another year... I can't see them selling at summer events somehow!
So if these don't sell this by Saturday there could be a sudden Etsy update on Sunday... watch this space!
