This morning I took a table at my childrens school Summer Fair. Last year we had a scorcher of a day and loads of visitors. Unfortunately it was raining this morning so we had to set up the tables in the dining hall, corridors and class rooms.
However it was still well attended and I think I got lucky with the table right beside the tea and biscuits! I've learned over the course of many fairs to bring lots of items for children and lower priced items like simple earrings. It's surprising how many of the children were buying small gifts for their mums!
I sold several necklaces and bracelets as well as lots of the lower priced items, though there was steep competition from another seller who imports a lot of cheap items.
I also got a commission from a lady for a necklace and earrings. She'd bought a necklace from me at last years fair and came back this year hoping I'd be there!
I've no more fairs lined up but after todays success I'll definitely book some in for the autumn.
