Saturday 7th September 2013 was the big day… the Revival List event at Kidsgrove Town Hall, our first event since June 🙂
The day didn’t start off too well as we both slept through the alarm clock and were woken up by a phone call fifteen minutes after we were due to leave home!! So it was a mad rush of sort the animals, have a shower, get dressed, load the car and set off… forty five minutes after being woken up and we arrived in Kidsgrove (including stopping for petrol and £1 coins for our float!) – not too bad!!
We got our stall set up and all of our Cards And Candles For All Occasions and Badger’s Woodcrafts stock out on display, including lots of new Christmas stock for 2013 almost an hour before the event was opened to the public which gave us time to relax a little and network with fellow stallholders.
The doors opened at 11am and got quite busy with visitors/customers pretty much straight away… lots of people browsing, buying and wanting to chat. There was a lovely atmosphere and we were made to feel very welcome within the local community.
Throughout the day we received lots of interest and compliments of our handcrafted products, spoke to a couple of people who are organising Christmas events and are going to send us details, had lots of interest in our personalised keepsake cards and a few ladies have said they will be in touch via our website and we also made a few sales.
We met some lovely stallholders including an Avon representative, a lady who makes delicious cupcakes, a lady who handcrafts some lovely felt goodies and a lady who handcrafts beautiful owl themed family trees while her friend does some gorgeous handcut images and quotes. There were also a few vintage clothing stalls, vintage/pre-owned niknaks and books, local community stalls and a stand and display for Staffordshire SANDS.
All proceeds from todays stall fees and the raffle will be donated to Staffordshire SANDS which is the Kidsgrove Mayors Charity of the Year 2013. You can visit the charity’s website at www.StaffordshireSANDS.co.uk 🙂
All in all, we had a really good day and can’t wait for the Victorian Fayre at Kidsgrove Town Hall on 30th November 2013.
Thank you to the great organisers of this event for all of your hard work and for inviting us to join your fayre today!
