Events in 2019
Hi and Happy New Year to everyone!
Just want to give you the heads up about fairs in 2019.
Christmas Fair 2019 I’m moving the Christmas fair forward this year, to November 9th. We always used to have the fairs in November, at the beginning of the Christmas shopping period, and it seemed to work better for both shoppers and stallholders. It will also coincide with Headingley Farmers Market which works well for everyone.
Stallholders’ need-to-know: We’re also going to have a new application system, to give people a fairer chance of getting in and to continue to get the best quality makers. So this year, applications will be a deadline, and stallholders will be selected all at the same time. I know people like to know whether they’ve got in early on though so they can schedule the rest of their Christmas fairs, so we’ll open applications early in the Spring.
Craft Clearout For the past couple of years we’ve had a Craft Clearout/Destash sale in the Spring. Unfortunately I don’t have the capacity to run one this year, which I know will disappoint many, as it’s a great way of getting hold of some lovely crafty goodies and of clearing out your cupboards. But I’m going to set up an online selling event in the Spring for anyone to sell their goodies. You’d have to be prepared to post or have people collect whatever you’re selling, and their will be a few rules about what you can and can’t sell, but other than that, anyone can join in. You will be expected to advertise it like mad to all your friends, customers and followers obviously!
So, that’s it for now. Please keep an eye on the Facebook page and your inboxes for further news.
