We all know that the weekend begins on Friday and finishes with a relaxing day on Sunday - well most weekends that is. Mine began almost at the crack of dawn on Friday setting up my spot at Secretts Christmas Fair and finished at 4.00 pm on Sunday. Those of you who do fairs know the drill, you take time and care when setting up and then it's a mad rush to put everything away as quickly as possible when the doors close.
It was a great fair for me and I almost doubled my takings of last year. I think it was because I had extended my range of makes/items for sale this year to include my jute bags, more wreaths, gift bags and other Christmas decorations. I had a great time, met some lovely new crafters, one in particular was Cathie Brooks who has seven cats! As you can imagine we had lots in common. Cathie very kindly gave me a bag of knitted catnip balls to pass on to my cats and foster kittens as well as some other lucky kittens and cats currently being fostered by Woking Cats Protection. Thank you Cathie - look forward to seeing you during my time in the Christmas Emporium at Secretts.
