Over the past few weeks Ive had some really bad fairs! Some have been busy but no one spending and some have been not as well organised as they should be.
This was the Heritage promotions fair in the Guild hall in York, I think the theme of the fair was a bit confusing for people walking around, there was a lot of antiques, some handmade crafts and some things that didnt fall into either catagory.
Temple Newsam was another one I thought would be a great. The weather wasnt great and the Leeds steam rally was only 100 yards away so we got a bit ignored. I had a stall inside but there were outside stalls which seemed much more popular.
Handmade in Ilkley was much better...well organised and even though the weather wasnt great it was quite busy. The range of crafts was great and as all good craft fair should be - everything was handmade!!
Ive decided next year to only concentrate on the big fairs..Ive got a Reetsweet fair next weekend that are always busy and always well organised.
