Craft Fair report

Hi, it is a beautiful day, the sun is shining and it is looking good for all week, it is nice that we can get the chairs out and have a sit out side. Well I have been to the craft fair and I am happy to say that it was a success, the good weather brought the people out and a good day was had by all. We got off to a slow start as when we all arrived at 8.30 the marquees were late arriving and they were only just putting them up so we had to wait around a while but we had a good chat and got to know some of the other stall holders. I was put next to a lady selling jewellery made from paper beads and a man selling baby gifts, the man was standing in for his wife and sat on his chair all day and didn't say anything to anybody. I got on with the girl on the jewellery stall very well as it was her first time doing the craft fairs. I had good sales with my cards and some good comments too, I have sold over half of my stock but the pin cushions didn't sell, there was a couple of crochet stalls which were also selling them, but never mind I made a good profit on my cards and I only had to pay £5 for my stall.
I have put a picture on which was taken when I was setting up my stall.

I had all my cards flat at first but then decided to stand them all up which looked much better.

The next two pictures were taken in the Town Green park before the craft fair started.
