This is what my table looked like, and all went well. For me, fairs are just as much about selling as pointing people towards my website and collecting their email addresses for marketing.
I'm hoping that I will be attending another fair through the National Trust at Brodie Castle in time for Christmas at the end of November.
I am now planning my build up to Christmas, and have ideas swirling around in my head, including an Open Studio day in December, craft fairs galore, advertising and offers through my website and of course Christmas exhibitions at galleries.
I'll let you know what I do end up doing, but I'll just have to remember that I can rest in January.

I can spend hours fiddling about on a computer working on designs trying to get them right, deleting bits that don't work and undoing things until I find the image I liked before I ruined it. So much to my surprise, and utter delight, I got my grubby paws on an iPad; and it took me all of one day to realise I could use it, amongst many, many things, as a sketch book.
I have been exploring the potential for just a week now and have loads of ideas and possibilities buzzing about in my head already.
As I said before, I love technology.
Thank you Steve Jobs. RIP.
