Last Sunday I attended my first craft fair! It was at Platt Fields Park in Manchester for an event called Apple Day. The event was organised by Etsy Mcr.
I had a really fun day despite the weather being miserable. It was great to talk to customers face to face, I got loads of lovely comments and a good few sales too! It’s really made me want to start selling at more craft fairs for the run up towards Christmas so I have just applied to some more. I even had one customer start off by wanting just 1 card but then spotting more and more she liked and ended up buying 6 cards, a pack of Christmas cards and a big bag of confetti because she just couldn’t resist! Amazing!
All my cards were sold ‘Naked‘ with just the display models in biodegradable cellophane. The customers loved the idea of them being plastic free, it was great talking point.
