Craft Stall - Total Sales £3!
Thank you so much for your kind words about my first craft fair. I have to say it was hilarious! Now, if you judge the day on sales it was a disaster, but if you judge the day by the value of myself laughing so much that tears were streaming down my face then it was a roaring success!
Here I am at my stall. If I look a little tired and unkempt it's because the sleepover last night did have very little sleep in it! It was lots of fun though and the girls were really pleased with the owl bags. It was just a bit manic in the morning with Mr HoffiCoffi printing off signs for me whilst I ironed my wedding day tablecloths to display my wares on!
This is my friend Lisa's stall.
She did really well selling plenty of these lovely felted soaps. As the title of this blog subtly hints at I didn't do quite so well! I sold a bookmark for £3. The stall cost £5 and I spent £2 on raffle tickets but I did win a bottle of wine. Can I say I broke even? :-) I've convinced myself that is really the case!
But I was so happy. Starting the afternoon with a coffee and one of the leftover sleepover cakes I laughed almost solidly for the next four hours. From sniggering at my friend's reaction when the lady in the stall next to her told her that her items were too expensive to shock and awe at a couple sitting at a stall a few tables up where the husband was filing his wife's feet to pass the time! Really it really happened! To sitting resolutely drinking tea when all around were packing up an hour early to hanging around awkwardly just so I could see if I won anything in the raffle to fulfil my 'break even' plan, I had a ball! Seems I am a glass half full kind of a girl!
Thanks Lisa for a farrrrbulous day!!!
