Thanks guys, and thanks for the hugs Helen. I needed them yesterday. things were better today, but over the weekend i took half of what i normally take, but thankfully I have enough to buy mroe ingredients  Happy Bounce

vanilla - i changed the layout slightly after this picture was taken. I kept the naked soaps out, but added some of the wrapped soaps too. no difference in sales, cos they pretty much all went for the coloured peaky topped soaps I showed off a few days ago. I sold 4 of teh branded Miss Polly soaps, and I'm sure that is cos the other ones caught their eye more.

Corrie, the cake stand was fro BHS i got it about 8 months ago, but I know they still have that range in the shops. I 'think' it's about
18cm -20cm diameter, based on what I can fit on it.

the woodcrafter (not the guy you know Corrie) did fabulously well today (sold 2 clocks to one customer, £140 thank you very much) and continued to sell. other than him, we all just ticked along. Most of these guys have been crafting for over 20 years and they are scunnered with the whole craft fair scene these days. that at least should let us newbies know that it isn;t out products, it's the overall financial situation.

That is depressing and encouraging both ...

There is a market I've been at for close to two years, and craft sales have plummeted. Difficult not to start doubting your product, esp when people still seem to have no problem buying sweets and cake!!  Grin

Polly - I'm glad you had a better day today - it gets discouraging.  Great display.....

Iulia I have never seen cakes and sweets do poorly at a show, sometimes it makes me want to change careers :mwaha:

Me too. Thankfully they don;t have food stalls at the events I do at Culzean or I doubt i would sell anything.

Lime Blossom - looking forward to Edinburgh too, I hope you can make it

Glad you had a better day but you're right things are not what they should be. Very tough  Sad
Thanks for the info on the cake stand, I'll have a look at their website  Smiley
Eddie (woodturner) is a jammy swine & you can tell him that from me  :mwaha:, he rolls (literally) in wearing the same tshirt every time, unshaven, is very "couthy" yet he sells! His stuff is nice though, if you like that kinda thing  Undecided

eta just read your post again, it wasn't the guy I know - just another jammy beggar!

gorgeous display Polly, sorry it ddn't go quite as well as you'd hoped. I agree, we are all suffering at the moment, we just have to try and stick it out until the upturn.  :buttrf:

Stall looks fanatastic and such a lot of stock. One day.....

I like to sell my soaps naked too (because I can't be bothered faffing about with ribbons etc. - it just takes up so much time).
