    Craft Fairs 2nd Dec 17 at 10:20 PM
    Been a bit disappointed recently with these. Sellers fees have gone up, buying public have gone down.
    Anyone else in the same boat?
    Another home made, hand made Christmas planned.

    Perhaps buying public are wearying of "crafts".

    I organise craft fairs and i can tell you they are very hit and miss and theres also absolutely no rhyme or reason to why some are good and others aren't. Generally though if the footfall is ok and your items are unique and well made and you provide follow up you should still be able to sell.

    Craft fairs these days are not what they once were in my experience.

    Is cake-making a “craft”?

    Also, lots of people seem to think ordering a load of stuff from China (via alibaba etc) and then tripling the price of it is somehow a “craft”

    And there always seems to be a stall selling basically bric-a-brac, the sort of tat you’d find in a charity shop.
