Megan Jane Jewellery: First Craft Fair







Yesterday I did my first ever craft fair at the Thoresby Miners Welfare in Edwinstowe. I was so nervous that people wouldn't like my handmade jewellery and that I wouldn't sell anything, but I ended up having such a successful day. I think I need to have more confidence in myself! Everyone was so lovely and I enjoyed meeting some of the other crafters and vintage sellers. It was also great to see a few other younger stall holders there, like Bella Lu Vintage!

I must say a big thank you to Katie for organising the 'Something Different' Fayre. Plenty of people came through the door which goes to show how much effort she put into ensuring it was well advertised!

My parents and I had a lot of fun playing around with the layout of my table. I wanted to make it look quite vintagey with the cream table cloths (thank you Liz & Christine) and a little scattered / mix match, like a dressing table. My parents suggested using the jewellery boxes which were such a lovely idea. I always think it's fun when you go to a fair and there is jewellery in little draws. We hung earrings off vintage tea cups and placed a selection of handmade rings on a pretty dark blue vintage plate. The cute little elephant earring holder also went down a treat. I think adding texture to a craft table, really makes a difference!

I got so many lovely compliments on my handmade jewellery and have been invited to a couple more local craft fairs, so I'm feeling quite excited and optimistic! If you are from the Nottinghamshire area and can suggest any more to me, feel free to comment below.

Thank you to my parents for your support & for helping me out - it means a lot!
