Craft Fair Prep


I'm just about ready for my first proper fair at the Harrogate Show ground for the British Wool Weekend. Now I should say this isn't my first experience of craft fairs when I was growing up my mum had her own business, Joybears, so most of my weekends were spent getting up very early and packing a car to drive to a fair and set up so I know what's in store for me... it doesn't stop me being really nervous though!

I'll be taking all my new designs with me including my new wreaths and my inkmeup feather brooches (which I love!) a huge pile of lavender bags and of course all the tweets! We're pretty much ready but there's always something else you can be doing! I'm still trying to finish a big wreath as a centrepiece for my display and I have to stamp all my boxes with my logo but I'm getting there.

I have been thinking about my brand and how I want to promote it so all my carrier bags have been stamped with my logo and I have made special promotional postcards with a discount code for fair goers so I will be able to track where my orders are coming from! (hopefully!)

On Thursday I shall be putting all my shops in holiday mode so I don't have to worry about them while I am away... I have big plans for when I come back but I shall keep that under my hat for now!
