It was a good first experience, lots of people, decent sales- LOTS of mistakes made and lessons learned but the trailer transport turned out to be easier than I thought which is quite a relief Smiley

I didn't have enough time to prepare the price signs, kind of a last minute realisation... plus I need WAY more practise putting up and taking down. The table was much smaller than described in the T and A document so had to find workarounds my dress rehearsal.

Gorgeous location  Smiley

That looks wonderful and thank you for sharing that with us.  Your set up is just lovely and I absolutely love how you have wrapped your soaps.  What a brilliant experience for you.  Remarkable how that simple table can be transformed like that.  So pleased it was a good day too.   :buttrf: :buttrf: :buttrf:

I love the look of the stall. The colour of the cloths really sets off the products. It all looks so inviting and lovely.

Your stall looks great and I'm very impressed that you cycled it all there. Gives me something to consider for the future because I don't drive, so assumed fayres would be impossible for me to do but I do have a bike Smiley

Looks really great  :buttrf:

Hope you enjoyed the experience, setting up and taking down gets a lot quicker with each time you do it.

Def agree setting up and packing down gets quicker. I am so fast at packing up now as it's the worst bit for me. At the fayre I was at the other day I managed to pack up my whole stall including the gazebo in less than 10 mins, my friends were shocked when they came back and my stall had disappeared!

Your soaps look really lovely too  Grin

Looks really good for your first set up. Yours still looks better than mine a year on.
I did those same mistakes of price tags. Someone suggested even if you write on piece of paper, atleast people can see it .

I still take time setting up and packing up.  Daisyage - 10 mins,  Shocked.   Wow.

I agree, 10 minutes!! It takes me longer to take down a gazebo alone!
