Events This Weekend

FOX Fair


So envious of you folk that live on the Island! There are 2 events going on in Victoria and I so wish that I could make it there. The list of vendors look fabulous and includes some names that I am not familiar with. Love new things!

Anyone going? Would love to see some pics and hear all about it -- I am shamelessly living vicariously through you :)

Happy crafting and and happy craft-fair-visiting!

Ahhhhhhh....a sweet sigh of relief as I finally sit down after a busy market day! The United Eclectic market was wonderful! Bustling all day long, with great music, exceptional organization and my two best sellers: Vintage glass magnets (sold about 80!) and Brass Anchor bracelets (sold 10, I think)! I even had to keep making more bracelets as my 'last one' kept selling. :) A great day!! Thanks to all the new customers and the market team!

New to your blog Tamsin and love it! I too wish I had time to peak into every Craft event in town so this is such a treat to get to hear and see inside many of the events through others reviews and pics. Such a great idea. As a crafter/vendor myself - trying to juggle 3 kids, family life and my business - scouting new shows is just about impossible. Reading some of your blog reviews has really helped me in my decision making come application time :) Many, many thanks to yourself and all the other reveiws that are posted.

Thanks Pebble Creations! Hoping people will post their impressions and experiences with shows they attend. I have found that different shows are targeted to different audiences and knowing which ones are which helps.

One pet peeve of mine is signage. So often I head to a show and once I am there am not sure if its actually going on and if I am in the right place -- there are simply no signs!

One of the best fairs for signage is the Carney Christmas Fair -- and it shows -- their attendance numners are awesome! Simple poster board signs in and around the community as well as clear signage at the event makes such a difference! But I digress lol :)
