Boy, is it cold today! Is it because we had mild weather in October that the recent cold and frost makes me think we have a bad winter on the way? Snow is already forecast for the midlands - is it earlier than usual? I like snow and it is lovely to wake up to find everything covered in the garden - especially if I don't have to go out in it. Being a clumsy idiot who manages to fall over when there is just a sprinkle on the ground, I would prefer it to fall and then disappear pretty soon after.
I held my second event in the Wilfrid Noyce Centre on Saturday and although it would have been great to have several thousand visitors, the stlalhodlers entered into the spirit of the occasion and created a really lovely busy, buzzy atmosphere. As always a big thank you to everyone who took part. Our next event is on 3 December, my last one as organiser for this year and as always I am looking for attractions to encourage and retain visitors. However, I always say I work hard to get people into the venue, then it is down to the stallholders to turn visitors into customers - even better if they are ones who came back again and again because they are pleased with what they have bought. Here are a few photographs of some of the work that was on sale at Saturday's event and more can be found on the A Fair to Remember Facebook page:
I am taking part in three events (two as a seller one as organiser/seller) and have a lot of work to do: bags to decorate with new and popular designs, candles to make and wreaths to make - if time permits.
Have a great week everyone - see you next week.
