Oh The Shame

The cloud cover was a bit dark and looming, it put people off, a really quiet morning as I chewed on paracetamol and shivered in a hot/cold sweat. Elizabeth came with me to set up and was an absolute star. Later Simon came down and brought his Mum and the rest of the children. We had a picnic lunch together and then my Mum and Dad arrived.

This is what my little offering looked like;

The bunting looked really really good, lots of people came and admired but no one bought any to take home;

Francesca turned into a butterfly;

And Nathaniel turned into a scary lion (although we thought he looked more like a tiger);

And the shame; I only just covered the cost of my pitch and that was only because my Mum and Mum-In-Law bought things. I wish they'd just take the things they like.

Your stall - especially your bunting - looked amazing! I think these fairs are very hit and miss, sadly.

Oh so sorry to hear your stall didn't do well, what a shame, with all that effort you put in as well. I think some people don't know a good thing when they see it, do they?

I hope everyone is feeling better soon.

Lots of hugs to you all xx

I'm in total agreement with everyone else your stall looked fab! I had a similar experience at the fair I did on Saturday too (even down to the mum and mum-in-law bit!) so you're not alone x

Your stall looked lovely! And as for the only just covering your costs thing, I had one where I didn't even manage that much. I think I'm going to give it up as a bad job till Christmas!
