Clothes Swish and Craft Stall!

Hello there! I hope you've all had a pleasant start to the week! I spent a lot of yesterday making new things to fill up my shops with, and hopefully if I get time this week I'll be setting up a new online shop on Zibbet (does anyone else have one - what do you think to it?) - I'll keep you updated!

The Farsley Clothes Swish was a great success - both for the stallholders and the bargain hunters...and I was one of each!

That's me and my mum hunting for bargains (with my arms full of clothes, of course!)

My stall looked something like this (hello, stupid photo of me!):

This was the first time I'd had a stall, and I came away with lots of things to improve on next time:
- I'll have a plain table cloth to stop it looking too busy!
- I'll divide what I have for sale into 'types' - cards, brooches, decorations etc so that people can see exactly what I have
- I'll put prices on my table! I know I get uncomfortable asking for prices at craft fairs, so goodness knows how I managed to forget to make price signs, oops!
- I'll make a sign with my name on, to help people remember me! I quite fancy crocheting the letters, but I've not quite got that level of crochet skill yet, so maybe just a printed sign first!
- I'll colour-match my business cards with the table cloth - there was rather a lot going on haha

The other stallholders included Silverglaze Jewellery:


and Clarise Designer Jewellery:

There were more, but these are the ones I think have websites - everyone had beautiful things on offer, which required spending some of my profits, obviously!

All proceeds from the swish went to Arthritis Research UK, so it was an evening well spent all round! Have you been to any good events recently?
