Gathering my thoughts!

I have never had a stall at a craft fair, in my life !!

I do admit that I've run school fete craft stalls and been to a few car boot sales with my wares. I've sold a few goodies on ebay and I've made bits and pieces for friends (or do I call it being commissioned?!!LOL ;-)

But never a 'professional' fair...never one entitled 'VINTAGE AND HANDMADE FAIR'

And now I'm going to one! ;-)

The Vintage & Handmade Fair to be held on Saturday the 22nd of November 2008 at Rangeworthy Village Hall, nr. Chipping Sodbury, South Gloucestershire. 10 a.m - 4.00 p.m.

It's now...

I have until...

I'm rather excited, not to mention..well you can imagine..PANIC!

I roughly know what I'm making and taking... but I know that time will fly and I really must get a move on!

So if I do get a little behind with my blogging, you'll know what I'm up to...snip snip!

I think there is a collective wobble amongst all the bloggers taking part in this debut Meet and Fair...I keep thinking .. oh plenty of time to make some stock but how time flies when you are having fun!!
Can't wait to meet you Sal.
Get back to your sewing now!

this is my patch said...

I wish I could come. I was thinking of asking Michele and Jayne if they could set up a webcam! I wish you well with your sales on the day. If you have just a couple of seconds to spare, there is an award for you to pick up over on my garden blog. x

This Vintage Life... said...

I did caft fairs many years ago and never got into the swing of things so to speak. I'm a very organised person but even so I used to be up till all hours of the morning faffing and packing...such a perfectionist, everything had to be just so! I'm sure it'll all come good for you and everybody else taking part. Boy, there'll be some blogging going on post V&H fair!

I feel like the kid that couldn't go on the school trip! I wish I could come and visit the fair but I live too far away and don't drive so I couldn't carry home all my purchases! Will you all take laptops so you can carry on blogging as you sell?!!! Have a wonderful time in the preparations and the day itself.

Hugs Lynn xx

Ragged Roses said...

Good luck with it all Sal, I am so sure you are all going to have lots and lots of fun together, at least the worry will be collective! I have done lots of craft fairs before and have always had a good laugh with my partners in crime!

Debbies-English-Treasures said...

I`m sure that you will do well, but most important... have lots of fun!
Thanks for your lovely comment on my post!
And an apologie is in order!
... I haven`t added you to my favourites yet... BUT, I will today!
Sorry sweetie!

Oh I wish I was near enough to come and see your stall and meet all the other bloggers!
Perhaps I should organised a car share from up here for all the local to me bloggers who fancy making the trip??
I'm sure you'll have a super selection of wares by Novemeber
