Fair Time

I've been really busy the past few weeks with a craft fair at Hatton Country World & my chalet I have taken on for a month at a local craft market. Still working on my display in the cabin as looks a bit bare inside & I need to make more bits to put on the shelves inside, went to a car boot sale yesterday & got some nice wicker display units that I have sprayed
 white & want to put a table outside to put more on. I may make it a more long term thing its just having the commitment to be there every Saturday, perhaps I shall have to employ staff! I did think of asking an other local crafters if they wanted me to stock their things in return for them helping me out occasionally, just a thought. Theres still some more crafts I want to try out. I saw some lovely knitted cakes at a fair recently & with my very limited knitted skills fancy having a go. I also want to try paper mache boxes but I cant find any instructions on how to make one from scratch, only about covering ready made boxes. 

The Hatton fair went well, especially my felted scarves that sold out & people wanting different colours that I didnt have, also sold some of my candles but not so much in the way of jewellery, I think there is perhaps too much competition at fairs from jewellery sellers so just as well I want to try all these different things!

Oh Caz your cabin looks fab! So pleased you did well. Think you're right about the jewelery, there seem to be makers/sellers everywhere,the competition must be tough. You seem to be able to successfully turn your hand to any craft at the mo so I'm sure you'll master the knitted cupcakes too.
