I must be honest - I HATE doing fairs, but we've got another one tomorrow and I'll just need to get on with it  Undecided
This may be quite a fun one, we asked if Kendall could have a wee space to take orders for her nappy cakes and sock bouquets, so she'll be there with Kiera and our other daughter is coming along to - so a family outing

I must say, I'm VERY tempted to suggest that I just stay at home Grin

I have a fair today, a Pamper Evening on Tuesday, an all-day Open House event on Wednesday and then, thanks be, a breather until 18th. Last night's event was a little slow,hopefully today will be better.

So, to everyone with upcoming fairs - Good Luck!!!

i've got an outdoor one tomorrow then a breather like Pam til the 15th (evening also outside) I hope the wind dies down a bit for us all!

good luck everyone

btw, Kingston was quite dead this morning, less than a usual weekday (not that I go often, only a couple of times a year as I hate shoppping)  but there was a queue of traffic building when I left (11am) so maybe people just didn't want to get up this morning? Kingston is usually packed this time of year.

Not a good day today - first time the fair has been a 2 day event and despite notices in the PO and shops the locals weren't there; hoping they turn up tomorrow.

One hell of a draught through the shed!! Feet were fine though - lace-up clogs so 2cm of wood and rubber between me and the concrete (no need bfor piece of carpet here!).

Sorry to hear you had poor sales EJ - maybe the weather put people off  Sad

Mines was good and I am pretty chuffed. But would I have bought from the guy next to me who was having a poor day and had a scowl on his face from about 1pm? He did cheer up a bit later when his wife was there but being a grumpy grump isn;t not going to help with sales.

Sorry it has not been a good day EJ. I hope it picks up for you tomorrow. Perhaps they were all watching Wales lose?

Yes, good luck everyone!

Sorry, EJ, wishing you a better day tomorrow, lots of sales.

I did my bit today, it was quite good, but I was in 'selling mode'.  I've now learnt how to grab customers, they start looking and I ask what scent they like, and follow on from there.  I was pretty impressed with myself, I'm usually quiet, but not today!  Cheesy

Not so good for us today either.
We gave Kendall a wee corner of our stand and she managed to sell a nappy cake - (large one), so she was quite pleased Wink
