My First Craft Fair

Well I finally took the plunge and decided to try selling my littles bits at a craft fair. This one was at the Custard Factory in Birmingham. Although I only sold one item, it was very thrilling to make a sale and I certainly learned a lot. The craft fair will continue for the next two Saturdays, so if you're in the area you should definitely check it out, as there were some very talented ppl there. I shared the stall with fellow Etsy Midlander Becky who makes amazing graphic art prints under shop name Beckyismyname.
I think I will wait a while before doing another, as I would like to work on some more cross stitch designs. Getting everything ready in the lead up was a little fraught as well which takes the fun out of something which has always been a really enjoyable hobby. I don't think I'll be quitting my day job!
Anyway, I now have a couple more items to add to my shops including kitch, vintage style shopping bags and little greetings cards.

  1. It is so much fun to just get out there! I did one this past weekend and while not profitable, I had a great time. I also just blogged about it as well!
