My First Craft Fair...

Last weekend I sold my artwork and stationary at the Artisan's at St George's Hall fair. It was my first time selling things in real life (other than etsy!) 

I had been putting off selling things in person, probably because I was nervous about all the things I needed to do to prepare; designing/ordering stock, making stands/shelves, and mainly worrying about whether anyone will actually buy anything!

After reading lots of blogs and trawling through pinterest I decided on a what products to sell and how to design / build elements of my stall. My woodwork skills from uni finally became useful! So a bought a few sheets of OSB and went to B&Q with the boyf for some dowel, brackets and screws. 

Although the fair wasn't the busiest I've been to, it was great to sell some bits. It was also good to experience start selling in person, meeting customers, getting feedback and the most valuable part of the weekend was meeting other sellers. I met some really great people, who gave me lots of tips and knowledge about the do's and don'ts of selling at markets. Overall I was happy with how my stall looked and now I will be prepared to apply for more in the future!
