Preparation is Key

This evening I’ve been getting things together for the Chalfont Crafty Collective Christmas Market this coming Saturday, our first market in MONTHS! 

I updated and printed off our sales ledgers, a photo of our Christmas stall layout,  created a newsletter sign-up sheet, got out a pack of our new business cards. 

I suddenly remembered that our jute banner is out of date as we’re no longer “made in Rickmansworth”, so I printed off and laminated our full colour logo. I do love to laminate 😀

I really need to make sure we’re prepared as it’s been such a long time since our last fair. 

More tomorrow….

Move

Great news! We’ve finally got a move date… Next week in fact! However, this has crept far too close to our Christmas fairs, so we’ve decided not to take part in the St Clement Danes School Christmas Market this year and give ourselves time to settle in to our new place and concentrate on Chalfont Crafty Collective’s Christmas Market on Dec 16th, our online orders and our regular wholesale order. 

Sorry we won’t be there, but don’t let it stop you checking out the fantastic school  Market:

Booked!

Autumn Market 2017

Yay! We have confirmed our place at the Chalfont Crafty Collective’s Autumn Market and Macmillan Coffee Morning at the end of September. I’m not really a baker, so this is a nice way to be involved without being a Mary Berry 🙂 We haven’t done any markets since March, and I’ve really missed them, so it is definitely something to look forward to. The local community of Chalfont St Peter come out and support this ever-growing market every quarter and it has become popular with stall holders too, as the organisers say they are over-subscribed and have a waiting list this time! So it’s even more “yay!” that we got a place.

We have quite a bit of soap in stock as we’ve not been doing any markets over the Summer, but we will will need to make more body butters nearer the time as they have a shorter shelf life.

We will also be on holiday at the end of the Summer, and we are really looking forward to the break :))
