Bonfire Night!

Yesterday I had my first ever stall at a craft fair! It was a lovely little one in Hither Green and after all the nerves, excitement, and card making I'm really happy with how it went!  I shared a stall with Vicky and all her pretty glittery things and I'm so glad I did because if I had done the stall by my self I probably would have been waaaaaaaaaaay more nervous than I was! 

I got some really nice feedback from people and some sales too! My favourite thing was when people had a proper little giggle at them because that's pretty much exactly the point of them!
I've learnt a few things for next time too, such as;

Bigging my self up to /generally chatting with customers. - Trust me I am a Chatty person, I probably chat too much sometimes. But in this situation I was a bit more nervous and didn't really know what to say to people, so I need to be more confident in myself and what I'm selling!

Maybe start doing things other than cards - Vicky mentioned this one, and I think its a good idea! I like the idea of little animal key rings! I've also thought about maybe doing posters...

A nicer display- I was pretty happy with the way I displayed my Cards but some of the tables at the fair were so pretty! I'm definitely gonna look up some cool ways to display my stuff!

So those are the main things, I'm sure if I think more about it, I'll think of some other stuff too!

I also got two very pretty things from the fair too! I got a lovely lilac bow from vicky and Richard got me the ring I wanted from Under A Glass Sky






Such a great day!
