*Christmas Fayre*

The Christmas Fayre on Sunday went really well.
I managed to take a few quick photos of the stall but they were quick as I had only just finished setting up before it opened at 10am, and as I was taking these photos people were starting to arrive to buy!!!
The light in the hotel was really yellowy too, so they are not great photos.
These photos seem to make the stall look as if it was a jumble sale!!!!
The tables seemed really thin so it was difficult to get everything on & make it look pretty!
Lots of people came along & said how lovely the stall looked so it must have looked a bit better than these photos show!!!
I had my vintage style mannequin dolly at the side with rose garlands, pretty signs & birdcages but I didn't manage to get a photo of her.
It was a really good day & I sold lots but the only thing that bothered me is that I was one of the few stalls that were upstairs in the hotel event room & I think downstairs was a lot busier!!! I don't think a lot of people knew there were stalls upstairs as I never once saw a sign on the stairs saying there were more stalls!!!
But it was a great day, lots of sales & I met lots of lovely stall holders.
It was my first fayre in about 3 years so I was a little apprehensive, oh & I had forgotten how much work goes into doing these things!!!!
Anyhoo I had a lovely day & my sister who was 'my assistant' did a wonderful job I couldn't have done it without her.

  6. Your stall looks fabulous I'm not surprised you did so well although it does sound like it would've been even better with some additional signage!
