So we have officially launched our little business, after week of sewing, pressing, painting and creating lots of lovely things I won’t say we were ready for the fair but we arrived, set up and had a great time.
Now we did forget the carrier bags, price tags and didn’t even have time for a nice cuppa before we met the public but our little stall looked lovely.
Now I love Elsecar Heritage Centre, it’s a little gem of south Yorkshire and doesn’t get as much exposure as it should. If you are ever looking for a lovely day out with a little bit of history thrown it you can’t go wrong with a wander around Elsecar Heritage Centre.
Anyway back to the fair, we set up in record time as despite our best intentions we didn’t have a run through the night before so we were a little nervous about whether we had brought enough stock or remembered the table cloths. Luckily we remembered our hand painted storage boxes, and signs which were big sellers on the day.
Becky from Paper Doll Events did a fab job of promoting the event and we had lots of customers browsing before the doors officially opened. The event was a blend of vintage home ware clothing and accessories along with lots of lovely handmade items.
We had lots of lovely feedback about our products which made all the hard work worthwhile which we celebrated with a hard earned drink in the pub afterwards.
Now we just need to restock so it’s back to the sewing, painting and sanding
