I am 10 days away from having a stand at my biggest fair to date...and I am bricking it!
I have absolutely no idea what to expect.

In just 10 days Blueberry Park will be at Country Living Christmas Fair, which is in Harrogate for the first time. 
This is the first time too that I will have done a retail event that consists of more than just a table top display.

I have a stand that is 3m x1m, no great shakes in CL terms but since I normally have a single 1.5m at most table, this is one hellava space to fill.

In an attempt to make it as eye-catching as possible, both in decor and items to sell and have some more larger "in your face" pieces I have designed my Pompom Cushion range of Gerry and Steve, to hopefully catch people's attention as they sidle by.

I am also aware that people will be after little stocking fillers and little extras while they are at it, so have also come up with another new item - a trio of xmas tree decos, screen printed on warm fluffy felt.
I am still none-the-wiser how I am going to display everything and still have a vast amount of stock still to make, but hopefully I am there in terms of which items I am going to take.
And to be quite honest with just over a week to go, let's hope so!

If you live in the vicinity and fancy a little excursion, the fair runs from Thursday November 29 until Sunday December 1. I am on stand C60 and would love to see you there!

ps don't forget about the fab Green Bee Pattern giveaway from The Village Haberdashery that I am running until next Weds...enter before it's too late!

Good luck! Loads of my family are visiting (as it's on their doorstep) and I'm suitably envious of both your exhibiting and their visiting! Bethx

Good luck! I'm helping a friend again this year on her stall at Glasgow Country Living Fair - it is very tiring, but great fun! I'm going to try to get to the Harrogate fair as well, so I'll call and see you.

I wish you all the very best. I'm sure you'll do fantastically well, as your makes are beautifully made and will definitely catch the fair goers eyes with all the bright colours.
Enjoy it and I'm sure you'll come home tired, but full of inspiration.

I really wish I could come and see your stall (and you!) but I'm sure you'll do really well and Gerry and Steve are bound to fly off the table - they're fab!

Best of luck!
I gather that pom poms are very 'in' at the minute so I'm sure you will be a roaring success.
