On Saturday I took part in the Etsy Cambridge Handmade Fair. Our wonderful team captain and leaders did an amazing job with organising the event. Here are some snaps of the day!
Our venue for the pop-up market was Cambridge’s historic round church.
Here’s my stall set up. I always get nervous before a fair, but had lots of lovely comments about the display which was great.Zenia showed the most beautiful needle felted designs which you can find in her store here.
Dittany showed her screen prints and jewellery – such amazing colours! Justine set up the prettiest vintage style pop up tea room. I was OPPOSITE THE CAKES ALL DAY. I caved about an hour into the fair and had a brownie.
Mel had some amazing boho jewellery on display so I grabbed a wrap bracelet which hasn’t left my wrist yet.
Kate of Daphne Rosa was testing out her new products at the fair with these fabric pom pom rings and flower crowns too. They were a hit!
I did some speed shopping at the end of the day and nabbed myself one of each!
At fairs I like to accept card payments as I find customers are more likely to spend more! I would especially recommend having a card reader if you are planning any fairs and have items to sell that are more than £15.
The card reader I use is by Payleven and I cannot recommend it highly enough. Super easy to use with a smart phone app and their customer service is excellent. At the moment is is only £34.99 for the reader (I paid £70!) if you use this link.
There were so many other great designer makers at the fair I just didn’t have time to photograph them all. The Etsy team had worked so hard and will be continuing the fun with a pop-up stall at the WOW event on 8 March. For more info, check out the team Facebook page!
