As well as this online store, I’ve been to a few craft fairs and school fetes to sell my wares in the last year. I haven’t done a lot, but I look to do a lot more.
Every one that I attend brings new ideas and new acquaintances. I have a very long list of ideas that I will one day get through.
One thing I have definitely learned though is that – at school fetes at least – cheap sells well. There tend to be a lot of kids, and they like things that they can afford with their pocket money. My best seller by far at these fairs has been these bangles:
They sell for just 50p, but they sell like hotcakes.
With plans to do many more fairs this year, I decided I should stock up. I may have gotten a bit carried away.
There are 160 there. Like I say, I may have gotten a bit carried away. But in theory I won’t have to make any more for a while.
