I've just finished my first craft fair!  I can't believe I actually did it but I finally did.  I spent weeks making things to sell, trying to restrict myself on the number of items I made as I had no clue what would be likely to sell well. I laid everything out on my kitchen table to see what I had and how everything would look once I got to the fair.  Here is a piccie of my layout...

I was quite pleased with it and I did sell really well.  As it's getting close to Christmas, I made quite a few christmas bits. 

Heres the front and inside of my Snowman Soup box!  I just loved these.  I saw them on someone's blog ages ago and had been dying to try them out.  I made 20 of them and I sold them all within the first few hours!  It had a hot choloate sachet, some marshmellows and a couple of Matchstick chocolates inside.

I made a whole bunch of christmas cards (3.5x3.5) and then I made a box to put them in and stamped a design all over them.  I put 8 cards and envelopes in each, cut a square hole in the front and inserted a clear acetate protector sheet.  They sold well too.

As the craft fair was held on 31st October, I thought I'd try my hand at a few Halloween treat boxes filled with chocolates and other sweet treats and hoped that I could sell them otherwise I'd just have to bring them all home again and eat the contents!  Luckily for my waistline I did sell them all.  Here's a look at what I made...

Some coffins filled with chocolate skeletons!

Dracula, Mummy and Frank - treat boxes with wire handles.

I've signed up for one more craft fair before Christmas and then that will be it for me until Easter.  I think my husband is begining to forget what I look like I've been so wrapped up in getting this made for both these events! Not to mention my bank balance buying all the card stock and stamp sets I used to create these things!


  1. Wow, it looks fantastic! Glad to hear your Craft Fair was a success :)
