I have been hesitant to write this post......
yesterday was the long awaited xmas fair in torquay and something whichi have been gearing up for, for a while now.
The evening was a preview for guests that turned out to be mainly family friends of the charity organisers. All the stall holders were told that a wealthy selection had been invited and so to stock up. Well i think these wealthy people were wealthy because they didn't like spending money.....I didn't do to badly on the evening, alot better than others who sold nothing.
But we all had high expectation for the following day which was open to the public and had apparently been well advertised. I made even less on the following day and we were hanging around for a great deal of the time. It makes me so sad to think of all that talent in that place that was going un-noticed. Thankfully i did make some money but it was nothing in comparison to what i laid out for this event.
One thing is for sure, i met some lovely people and in typical british fashion we made the best of a bad situation. I also learnt a great deal about what makes a good fair and how to choose selling avenue's wisely.
Now i have the task of looking after sick children whilst feeling pretty crap myself....oh thats enough self pity...life goes on.
