Curiosity Haus Craft and Design Fair






Yesterday I held a stall at the Curiosity Haus Craft and Design Fair, and I am sad to say, it was rather disappointing as fairs go :(  I did feel that the cost of the stall was a bit pricey, but took the risk as my last fair with them (which was at Sneinton Market in Nottingham), went pretty well.  The sudden burst of sunshine was potentially the reason for the very slow amount of people stopping by.  On the up side though, I did get to talk to lots of other very talented crafters, and even got to have a really good chin wag with a friend who I've not seen in ages!  I also did a 'craft swap' with another stall holder - I exchanged some bunting for a completely amazing bracelet.  It's gold, with a little gold disc hanging from it, which says 'going steady' with a silhouette of a boy and a girl.  So random, and I LOVE it!
Oh, and here is a quick snap of me in one of the many new (second hand) items that I have acquired lately - a handmade blue and white polka dot shift dress, 99p from eBay!  What an absolute bargain, and it fits perfectly :)  My big bag of clothing for eBay is still sat here, I'm hoping to get some things listed this evening.  I also went to a car boot sale this morning, and found some more treasures, so that's yet another post waiting to be written!

I hope you're all having a great weekend, and that it's sunny wherever you are!

  12. Hi Katie,
    Just came across this post, Sorry things didn't go so well for you at this fair. It was disappointing that it was quite quiet, but we have had several really successful events at the Orange Tree, so I am gutted to hear that you didn't have a good day in sales.

    I am always trying to improve the events and my job as the event organiser is to make sure all my stall holders are happy. It would be great if you had sent this feedback to me personally as well.

    I hope it doesn't put you or any of your readers off attending our future fairs, as we are really looking forward to the Christmas season of events this year, and would be delighted to have you back!

    The pictures look great!
    Hope to see you again soon
    Laura x
