I'm sorry you're disappointed. At least you did make some profit! I do loads of teeny local events where I make only £12 and the table costs £5. But I guess you do put in a lot of time and effort for the larger events.

Aww, Emma - I know how disappointing it is, especially when the table cost is high. At least you did make that back, but - "meh" does sum it up rather.

That was a shame Retro - it's very dificult to predict results from fairs/shows these days, more so than it used to be.

Sorry it wasn;t so good Emma. You did make your table and a bit more but its not a huge amount for 2 days hard work  big hug

A few crafters this weekend said they are down pretty much 50% freom last year and that seems to make sense from my takings. People are just not spending. Gone are the days when they would like and buy.

Lets hope people's thriftyness has gone by the time the xmas season kicks in

thankyou for your kindness and support everyone...at least I made enough for my MR SIte renewal that I have to pay off on the credit card next month, but I was hoping to get enough on to buy a small laser printer, cos my labels aren't waterproof right now!!

retropants - have you tried putting clear shipping tape over them?  Or even shiny clear labels over them before you cut?  It gives them a more finished look that is waterproof until you can afford that printer. :buttrf:

I do put tape over the scrub labels, but the labels are glossy to begin with! It is OK for fairs I think, but not good enough for boutiques etc.

I know exactly what you mean.  I bought a Samsung and it is quite inexpensive to purchase with wonderful print.
