It was a pretty amazing day at Harefield Village Fair on the green. The weather was beautiful all day and there were loads of local people browsing the stalls and buying stuff! We sold several of our body butters, skin oils, skin balms and soaps, as well as bath accessories like wooden soap dishes and shower scrunchy-puff things.
Sponsored by Hillingdon Council, the event was really well organised, with the market stalls being arranged close together in an oval shape, so that customers could walk around it several times without doing a marathon. The green itself is central to the village, on the crossroads, so there are always people milling about and cars driving by. We will definitely do it again if it happens next year!
Our last market was the French market in Rickmansworth High Street, so what have we been doing since then?
Our web orders have increased, and we have also had a few orders from local people following the French Market, which is great!
We are also busy making products for the Autumn fairs we have coming up, and we’re thinking about Christmas, which is going to be extremely busy with St Clement Danes Craft & Gift Fair and a new one for us this year – Beaconsfield School Christmas Fair. Very excited about that!
We’ve just booked a spot on the new annual Harefield Village Fair in September after we were tweeted by the organisers last week! Although I do want to pace myself, the Harefield fair is a local opportunity not to be missed! This way we can connect with the community on the other side of the canal! My aim was always to become known locally, and this will definitely help. You can’t beat face to face interaction, despite what Facebook may claim!
