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I suddenly remembered that our jute banner is out of date as we’re no longer “made in Rickmansworth”, so I printed off and laminated our full colour logo.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.
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:
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!
I’m currently plugging away at getting products made for our upcoming Christmas markets (Chalfont Crafty Collective and St Clement Danes School Chorleywood), as you can see from the photos above and below. I need to wrap and label these soaps and start on the next lot this weekend, as well as getting on with my regular wholesale order. I’m also thinking about what new products we can introduce this Winter…
We’re really looking forward to these two local events because we haven’t been able to take part in many markets most of the year due to putting our place on the market and now awaiting a move date. Hopefully this won’t happen too close to Christmas, which is the busiest time of year! Anyway, exciting times!
