I have decided to try some art fairs, I have applied with http://www.penistoneartisanfayre.co.uk/ their website and their fb page https://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/pages/Penistones-Artisan-Fayre/356826704352523.
On the day, I had expected rain and cold, it was freezing. My fingers went numb and I tired hard to continue drawing to try to keep them warm but that didnt work, They were just numb...It was damp and wet,but the organizers were great. They made sure everything went smoothly, very professional. I met Sarah Catteral, she was very helpful.
Overall, I loved it. I enjoyed talking to the people that popped into my gazebo. I had a chat with a few of the other traders. I have to admit I was very nervous to begin with, it was my first ever stall and I didnt know what to expect. I had a chat with Louisa Kemp, from http://louisakemparts.moonfruit.com/ her fb page https://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/pages/louisa-kemp-arts/267917239864 . She gave me some very helpful advice, at the end of the day she didnt have to, she didnt know who I was or anything, but she did and that's all it took a few tips from a kind stranger to put your mind at ease. It turned out to be a good day, lots of lovely people and sales, we likey!!!
I will definitely do it again...
