Autumn

Autumn is definitely here. I drove down the motorway yesterday with the wind tossing the autumn leaves around. Whilst I planted some bulbs a week ago, I have a few more to put in, but it is raining, so I will have to leave that till another day. Our clocks change tonight, so it really does feel like it is heading for winter. At least the craft fairs now are all indoors, which is less work, no putting up the gazebo, but the weather can have an effect on the numbers that attend.

This time in two months, it will be Christmas Eve. I have completed most of the Christmas items for Didi Lou Crafts, with a few in reserve just in case. Last fair Didi Lou Crafts had close to 300 items of stock, although many of those are small items that are not suitable for selling on Etsy. I do want to list a few more items on Etsy over the coming weeks. I have some new secret stash books to list and I will also add some wooden wreaths. Keep an eye out for these on the Didi Lou Crafts Etsy store at https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/DidiLouCrafts

Another Fair

craftfair151017-2Didi Lou Crafts attended another indoor fair yesterday. It wasn’t necessarily a huge success but each one teaches me more, even if perhaps the biggest lesson this time was don’t dig a whole new garden border in the days before a fair… not only has it taken me days to get the dirt out from under my nails but also I ache all over, but I did “borrow” my husband’s cushion from his wheelchair and sat on that… it is very comfortable on the horrible plastic chairs found at most craft fairs.

craftfair151017-1I am happier with how I am setting out my wares, although it is much harder to fit all my stock on just a single table. I have a few weeks break (this was the only fair I booked for October), before a very busy schedule with 7 fairs from the beginning of November up until Christmas (and still looking for more). I am now considering a well earned break in January at my favourite crafting hotel, which will give me the chance to do some more items.
