craft fair headache!!!!

well i didn't realise organising a craft fair was so brain frazzling!! I have got my hubby (as i write this) adapting one of his application forms (he's an events manager) to suit our needs, but i have found it surprising that we have not been flooded with applicants!  We are using everything that we would expect to be done if we had stall, into our planning (food/pricesvenue etc) as we really want it to be a success for the stallholders.  Lots of advertising has got to be done (we have a local mag that gets delivered to 9000 homes locally/radio etc)
The more i think of things thelonger my list gets :)
As i have 3 kids, i know that i wouldn't get long to look around a craft fair, so i am trying to organise some kiddie things to keep them occupied(hook a duck etc)  I know from experience a happy child is a happy parent :0.
Sorted size of tables,hopefully do a raffle (although i now know you have to have a license to hold a raffle!)
Listed the event on stallholder tonight too.  I really must think about making some more tiaras etc to put on the stall!
Will keep updating when there is any news!


  1. It's going to be a big challenge for us Sam, I work full time too as you know. Like you, I never realised just how much work goes into organising your own!

  2. We'll get there!!! it'll be an experience!!
