Two Christmas Fairs!

Two fantastic days!

And its not just about the sales. Yes, as my previous post says, it is my business! And I did make good sales at both events. But it is also about working in harmony with like minded people and getting nice comments from people who visit my stall.

At both the Stamford Handmade Christmas Market and the Late Night Shopping event at Oakham Castle I met some really  lovely people and got so many positive comments, even from folk who were not actually buying but had just come for a "wander around" at their local event.
I don't expect everyone who comes to a fair to buy something but a little respect for the artisans displaying their creations goes a long long way. And while people like the ones mentioned in my previous post do their best to spoil things there are the good guys who always make it worthwhile! And give me and others like me the encouragement to carry on crafting and making.
