Sunday, Sunday....

Well, yesterday was the second of this year's craft fairs in Bath. After last month's miserable showing I wasn't looking forward to it - I didn't sleep much for worrying about it. In the end it turned out pretty well - I was only £7 away from paying for my table. I've yet to see £12 of that as it's for a commission, but fingers crossed it'll all go well.

I've had many a dark moment over the last few months wondering if I'm doing the right thing in trying to get all this going - but yesterday was so encouraging. In just a month, my table looked much more professional, I had carrier bags and I've actually sold some items! Roll on next fair!

Unfortunately I had to turn the job down as I wasn't happy with the contract, but I'll be making the most of the time I've got now. I have loads of ideas for new products - a painted range, novelty cushions and notebooks to name just a few. We're off to Paris in a couple of weeks and I intend to do plenty of 'research' in the flea markets. A few items may also find their way home with me (thank heavens for Eurostar!), which should give me lots more inspiration!

Good luck with all your craft fairs too

I hope you're going to get some more rest now the fair is over. And enjoy all the research in Paris!
