Stall at Sudeley Castle Fair
Here is a short video showing my stall at the Home & Garden Summer Fair at Sudeley Castle, Winchcombe 20th - 23rd August 2020.
The fair ran over 4 days and the weather was a mixed bag with Thursday being the best day. Interestingly Thursday was also my best day for sales. It was hard work setting up the stand, it took me around 5 hours. I was very fortunate to have two lovely neighbours, which made it an enjoyable 4 days and it feels quite strange now that it's over.
I sold products from my whole range, including several lampshades but my best seller, as always, were my makeup and wash bags. It is always lovely doing shows as l meet my customers face to face and get valuable feedback. The lampshades were very popular and l hope to have more post show sales. I was also really pleased to meet return customers, customers who recognised my designs from my shelves at the Malt House Emporium and people who had read my article in Cotswold Life magazine.
Will l do the show again? I'm not sure, it's a lot of hard work yes, but also rewarding. Is it financially viable? Time will tell.
