- People want things there and then. They don't want to part with money and not take something home. Find it really difficult to explain (without sounding rude) that I can't possibly have a huge range of names of all of my products stock piled and that my products need to be made to order.
- I get lots of "ooh that's nice" and "ooh that's different" then they walk past and I'm assuming it's because they don't need something there and then.
- Despite coming to a craft fair event people genuinely come with no money, now I'm assuming this is a symptom of the recession so more people are browsing rather buying
However, I have realised it does spur me on:
- To look into further advertising opportunities
- To look at my products - can I improve them?
- To have new ideas about new products
- To look at the types of craft fairs I'm attending
Today's craft fair in Biddulph went OK, I had a sale within 15 minutes, gave out quite a few business cards and met some lovely ladies:
Monkey Sew, Monkey Do - gorgeous handmade quilts and baby bibs (really good quality)
SoSo - beautiful handmade hearts and heart bunting
And it's because of these lovely ladies that I had a brain wave. I've been thinking about the ribbon on the door hangers and room signs
So I've ordered some garden twine to replace the ribbon in blue, cream and red
Anyways, hope you enjoyed my latest blog. If you want to see anything from me, just drop me an email
