The first installment of my experience of organising a craft fair.

Well there are 4 Folksy ladies that have decided to set up our own craft fair, so I thought i'd blog about our experiences good or bad.
We met up in my home town, Hucknall, which was nerve racking as we have only spoken over Folksy.  The ladies, http://www.folksy.com/shops/susiej  /  http://www.folksy.com/shops/PaulazJewelz / http://www.folksy.com/shops/KirstysCreations1 (and of course myself) were all lovely and we had a good brainstorming session to sort some designs/prices etc.  We had a good 2 hr chat and have decided to start trying to get some lovely sellers into our fair.
When i eventually got home i mentioned to my hubby that for a small add in the local paper it was going to cost us £136 pounds, to which he decides to let know that he sorts all advertising out locally within his job role and had got a big list of contacts!!!  So Paula has opened a thread on the Folksy Events site to see if we can get anyone interested in a table.  Tables are £20 without lunch and £25 with lunch, free refreshments throughout the day also.  Fingers crossed that we get lots of interest now then we can get advertising!!
I will try to update on here when we have any new updates
