Once I had taken out £25.00 for the stall itself I just about broke even. I shared the meagre 'profit' with my son who kept me company on the day and gave me support and encouragement.
Here is a round up of how my items fared:
- mini cards the most popular items
- wish bracelets sold well at only £1.00 each
- Stretch bracelets with high quality beads brought in most money per item at £7.50 each
- no sales of angel charms, general cards, necklaces, earrings, decorations, pendants, tote bags, wooden key rings, bag charms
- Two rings stolen
The day itself was a confidence booster as I really got into my stride talking to people and it was another example of how I can function capably outside of my comfort zone.
Would I do another craft fair? Never! What next? I am going to let things sink in over the next couple of weeks and see how I am going to move forward. I do tend to be an all or nothing person and as I have given the crafting game my all I now feel like I want to give it nothing!
Time to pack up the boxes and all the crafting paraphernalia and return to less manic creativity such as painting or drawing (or even picking up a sketchbook Anne!)
I feel such a sense of relief that it is over. *Sigh*.
