My First Craft Fair

MAC Contemporary Craft Fair August 2013

Last weekend I had a stall at a craft fair for the first time, at Midlands Art Centre. I’m not used to having to make up so much stock, as I only make the items I sell on Etsy when I receive an order. I have a stall booked for a couple of Christmas craft fairs so it was a good practise run at laying out a stall and testing what would sell. I was visited during the fair by my friend Jo, and my family which was very nice:)

As well as selling a few items, I also came home with a couple of lovely things.

I traded one of my plush Geek Chic Panda for an amazing necklace by a fellow stall holder Working Clasp. It’s my new favourite necklace and is going to get worn with EVERYTHING!

I also bought some awesome handmade oak buttons from Against the Grain. I picked a small-sized button as I’m going to attach them to a skirt or blouse as soon as possible. Sue, the artist who makes them, can make buttons to order for specific sewing projects. Tempting:)
