Wow, what a great day! I’ve been really looking forward to these Craft & Vintage Fairs at the Working Men’s Club in Higham Ferrers and today went so well which was a great relief!! We had 20 fantastic handmade and vintage stalls including small leather items, cakes, wooden items, vintage haberdashery and kitchenalia, crochet, baby quilts, an author with her children’s books, fabric gifts and home accessories, shabby chic furniture, hair accessories and much more!
As always, lots of customers commented on how impressed they were with the high quality of the stalls and the wide range of items on offer. I saw lots of people leaving with bags full of goodies which is always a great sign! It was nice to have a chat with customers as they enjoyed a cuppa and cake and they told me their thoughts about the event. All were very keen to take a flyer with the upcoming dates so I’m sure they’ll become regular visitors.
Feedback from stallholders was equally positive and I really do appreciate the compliments and the constructive ideas – one person suggested an arrow by the Queen’s Head pub to point people in the right direction which is a great idea so I’ll do that next time. It was the first event where I didn’t do a table plan and so everyone chose where they wanted to set up which seemed to go well, thank you also to all those who helped put the tables and chairs back at the end!
The next Craft & Vintage Fair in Higham Ferrers is on Saturday August 27th 9am-1pm so I’ll look forward to seeing you then. There are a couple of spaces left so please get in touch if you’re interested: firstname.lastname@example.org
