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I suddenly remembered that our jute banner is out of date as we’re no longer “made in Rickmansworth”, so I printed off and laminated our full colour logo.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

Christmas is on its way! 


Can you believe it’s November already? 

In anticipation of our upcoming Christmas fairs we have been busy making products and ordering all the supplies we need for making our stall extra special this year. 

As usual we will be selling at St Clement Danes School in Chorleywood at their annual Christmas fair in December. Because we do that event every year, it’s important to keep things fresh and interesting, with something different on offer to last year (as well as our usual products). 

Because we are apparently heading towards a cashless society, we have just invested in a PayPal card reader, so we should be able to take card and contactless payments this time around! Yay! 

We are really interested in The Kitchen Croxley’s Christmas Shopping evenings in November and December, but we anticipate moving house in a couple of weeks, so probably a good idea to calm it down this year 😭… 

Right, back to work!
