Amazing Christmas Craft Fair

Standard

imageHand made sales

Saturday saw the village annual craft fair. I had a stall selling hand poured candles in china cups. I was delighted with the presentation of my stall and it was a very successful day. Choosing to perfume the soy wax definately made a difference. I used a blend called “Tranquility” and one called “Baby Lavender”. Perfuming was a big improvement on past years as I had noticed that everyone picks up the candles and smells them to see if they will buy them. I hadn’t perfumed in the past as my interest was more in the fact that I use Eco friendly Soy Wax. Lessons learnt!

At these events you do meet some lovely craft workers. I also did some serious networking, bought some gifts for Christmas and treated myself to a lovely silk scarf. One lady I met is in the process of opening a craft workshop locally. This sounds like a very exciting project so. I will be blogging more about this shortly.

Crafts and Candles

Candles with a DifferenceCraft Fayre Poster

This ¬†week has been very busy, candle making, working, and just living! Tomorrow we have the annual Christmas Fayre ( why is it spelt this way?) here in our village. I have a stall selling candles. I have tried to be a little different and seek more unusual containers as you can see from the picture. Some of the candle are perfumed with “Baby Lavender” and some with an oil blend called “Tranquility”. The fine china cups and saucers that I usually look out for have become much harder to find, and often far too expensive. I try hard to keep the final price as low as possible. ¬†This is a hobby not a real business I just need to cover costs. I don’t expect to sell out tomorrow, although I would like to sell as many as possible, as Hubs complains about candles taking over the cottage!

Next week I intend to front load my Etsy shop with remaining candles- well some of them! So visit noddfa.crafts@etsy.com

Oh and by the way pop along to the Fayre (fair) in Cilcain village tomorrow!
