Hey! We have just about recovered from our stint at Denham Village Fayre on Spring Bank Holiday Monday!
It was our first time there as stall holders (having gone along as punters in 2017) and the organisers made it really easy for us as we didn’t need to bring a table or gazebo, which saves a lot of time in setting up, plus there was free parking 🙂
We were situated between a homeware stall and a plant stall, from which we picked up lots of useful gardening tips.
The weather was really lovely and sunny after the initial overcast sky in the morning and the village was HEAVING with visitors all day.
There was much to enjoy; a great atmosphere, interesting food stalls, crafts, funfair, tombola, a raffle, Morris dancing, all within a picturesque, Midsomer Murders-esque village!
So what’s next?
16th June – Chalfont Crafty Collective Summer Market at St Peter’s Church Hall, Chalfont St Peter, Bucks 11-3
14th July – Chorleywood Village Day, Chorleywood, Herts 10-4
Yesterday we had our stall at the Chalfont Crafty Collective Spring Fair over in Chalfont St Peter between 10-2.
We arrived at the hall around 9.20am and got set up. I have to say I was really concerned that we were almost directly opposite a stall selling very strongly scented wax melts… Not good for a scented soap stall! Last time this happened was at the Little Fox Market in Rickmansworth where we were side by side with a similar stall and people were ‘smelled out’ by the time they got to us and either couldn’t smell our essential oil products or just didn’t want to! It seems to throw up an annoying either-or scenario. Or people think you’re selling the same thing!
Anyway, we actually did fairly well. The fair was busy most of the day and we recognised some visitors from previous fairs, which is great. We actually sold out of our Miracle Mango and Hemp Butter (not hard as we only had a few left in stock!) after having a discussion with a few ladies about dry skin complaints and the amazing benefits of mango butter and hemp oil, along with the therapeutic effects of Lavender and Tea Tree. Of course I am able to share my own experience of eczema and generally dehydrated skin. I really hope it helps with their skin issues as you really can’t escape your skin.
Also got given a few leaflets about fairs and shows that are being organised if we’d be interested. Always good to find other events in the area.
We are booked into Chalfont Crafty Collective’s Spring Fair on Saturday 18th March, which will be our first fair of the year!
(We were going to do another event in February, but it turned out to be a Valentine-themed Pamper Evening which in our experience usually means that guests are there more to enjoy the massage appointments and not so much to spend spend spend on products…especially not that long after Christmas)
Anyway, we hope to see you in Chalfont St Peter and hope it’s a fun day!
