Oh dear..........I don't think many people were shopping in Guildford on Sunday  Sad

I had no real need to be nervous - I suppose I had expected something a bit different, with it being held just off the High Street. The organisation of the event was brilliant, but even the best organisation won't make people come!

As it was, I cleared my stall fee and made money on top AND sold stock right across the board but a lot of the stallholders didn't and were very downcast - the girl with some fabulous artificial flower arrangements and christmas wreaths sold NOTHING Sad

I was really pleased with the interest in my body butter and my Winter Balm - and the solid massage bars and baby massage bars went as well. Soap was a mixture of CP and M&P and yes, I know, I haven't posted any pix but I will tomorrow - honest!

Oh that's sad.  I am sorry it was so rubbishy  Sad  big hug

Still, you have got your name around a bit and there's a good chance some of them will come back to you as we get closer to xmas. 

Just out of interest, in terms of experience, is there anything you have drawn from this that you will use in future events?

Oh, absolutely.....if I can, I'll check out the venue first! What I didn't put in my last post was that the unloading area was down a steep driveway with a small car park at the bottom where you could turn round. That was fine when we arrived, as the organisers had issued everyone with time slots, so we were able to unload and then go back up the driveway easily. However, at the end of the day, we weren't able to turn the car round (too many other vehicles) so we had to reverse up that driveway (a 45 degree slope!!).
When we got to the top, there was smoke pouring out from under the bonnet  Shocked and we were sure that we had burned out the clutch....which on any car is an expensive job and on the Volvo  - well- let's just say I almost cried!
We called the RAC and by the time they arrived, the car had cooled down - RAC man said that it was good we'd stopped when we did, as we probably saved the clutch.
Moral of the story - go and check the venue for access and make a plan for arriving and leaving!

Also......I will put out unwrapped soap samples because people wanted to smell the soaps but were reluctant to pick up the packaged ones.

I don't think there is much you can do with regard to "footfall" - the guy who had the stall opposite me - Quack's Pickles - said that he had done a tiny village hall event on Saturday and had been really, really busy all day (and hadn't expected to be, either). He reckoned everyone in the village came (it was Sherfield on Lodden's Holly Fair, I think). I guess I'd thought that, with it being Guildford, we would be busy but......
