Well what a glorious weekend it has been! I hope you’ve all been enjoying the beautiful weather. Today was the Spring Craft Fair at Stanwick Village Hall and I was so impressed with the incredibly high quality of all handmade stalls on offer. Several customers and stallholders commented on how lovely it was to see such a great mixture and all handmade too. We had preserves, upcycled vintage, Lego and scrabble pictures, haberdashery, fabric gifts, clothes, bags, quilts, crochet, photographic prints, face painting, cakes, needle felted animals, lamps, jewellery plus more!
Unfortunately today ended up being a rather quiet event, probably due to the fantastic weather – people obviously preferred to be outside on such a sunny day. I have to say I was so pleased with how positive all the feedback was from both customers and stallholders and how understanding everyone was – and thankfully, keen to come back for future events! Just goes to show that you can advertise as much as you like but some events will naturally be quieter than others.
On reflection, I have decided to cancel the next event at Stanwick as the bigger venues such as Saxon Hall in Raunds seem to draw a bigger crowd (and offer better parking!). I’ll look forward to the next event which is at the Mandeville Hall in Kimbolton on 12th June. See you there! Louise
