Craft fair stall


This is my second post today. I just thought I would share yesterday's craft fair stall with you. I only had a 6' table with a 2' table behind on the right. Having this size stall meant my things were a bit more bunched up than I like really and I don't have any room for craft stash which I sell when I have more space selling at the hospital. I really enjoy making the gifts as well as cards and selling just cards nowadays at a craft fair wouldn't be worth it. So many people sell cards, some of them very simple and therefore much cheaper than mine. I enjoy finding new gifts to make. Some are a success such as the magnets which are going really well. I recently made some keyrings/bag charms and sold 2 yesterday. I also have pen holders back in stock. I did well yesterday. 

As I sell at the hospital shop once a month I am only doing 7 craft fairs this year. My magazine commissions have also increased. This month I am in Making Cards and I also have my first project for Crafts Beautiful published.

Your stall looks wonderful Marianne. Love the way you have displayed everything. I gave up trying to sell my cards as I could not compete with the very basic cards others were selling. Now I have a problem finding a home for them as even charity shops don't want to sell them...

Your stall looks lovely and interesting! Love the variety of gifts that you have, and I think that people could buy these items for themselves or others, they are very beautiful. The wood structure on the right shows the biggest items very well and people can see them also if they are a bit far from your stall. The magnets looks so pretty!
Congrats for your publications on magazine, they are well deserved!

Your table looks lovely and very colourful. I struggle with a 6' table and I also have a big stand I put on the table to get a bit more space. I have decided to have 2 tables a bit nearer Christmas. Hugs, Carol S.xx

I found this a lovely read Marianne and so interesting as I have a hand full of craft fairs booked this Summer again. One 6 foot table is not a lot of space, this is what I have and I usually have way too much stuff for that space. Like you I make gifts as other people are there with their plainer cards than mine. If you wish to chat feel free to message me. It is lovely to discuss a shared hobby. I hope your weekend is going really well, Judy x

Your display looks fabulous Marianne! I also do a few craft fairs to sell my goodies ... 2 in the Spring and 2 in the Fall. Your card display looks wonderful ... I separate mine by categories in divided media boxes and that seems to work well for the six foot table. Your extra goodies look awesome ... another items I make and find they sell VERY well are the tissue box covers. I sell them for $5 each (various themes) and they go really well. I put a couple on display to show how they look over the box of tissues and the others I have folded down, bagged and lined up in yet another media box (works perfectly). That way they can see the different designs without having to set them all up. I hope you had and continue to have successful sales!
