I did a craft fair in York this weekend. It was very disappointing!
I thought my stand looked good though, I was happy with the way the product looked when it was all laid out.
What I love about craft fairs is meeting different people, because I don’t get much of that since I have been freelancing. I love seeing the reactions to my work and what pieces people are drawn to but I am finding craft fairs not the best place to sell my work. So far Designers Marketplace in Middlesbrough has been the only venue that has not been a disappointment. I am desperate to find a decent craft fair in Manchester or in the North, most however seem to be down south. On the plus side though the Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair has called for entries and I am going to apply! Fingers crossed I am at a high enough standard.
Oh and to anyone I met this weekend at York, thanks for stopping by my stand and taking an interest in what I do, hopefully you will pop back here soon
