I've been busy crafting away making jewellery for my first indoor market of the year which will be taking place at the Pleasley Landmark Centre on the 28th of April. I like to display a variety of pieces at craft fairs and markets so there is something for everyone. It's funny because when I'm designing my handmade jewellery I tend to think of people my own age wearing it, but at craft fairs I find that both young girls and older women love it too! A lot of people buy my jewellery as gifts, which I think is lovely, as handmade items are so much more personal and unique than high street jewellery.
One of my favourite things about craft fairs (aside from meeting lovely customers) is setting up my table. I always make sure I have a cream lace table cloth with me to cover my craft table and a variety of vintage style jewellery boxes. I don't like things to be too organised as I think it can sometimes put people off picking pieces up and looking at them up close. I sort of think of my jewellery table as a little like a dressing table. I'm tempted to actually do a post after my next craft fair so I can show you how I set it up. I have some lovely display pieces including a miniature jewellery wardrobe and a vintage style box that is disguised as a book!
Do you like going to craft fairs and vintage markets? What sort of things would attract you to someone's stall? xo
