First was New Milton....
I attended this one twice last year and it was one of the successes of 2014. It was also a good excuse to see my parents and visit the beach.

The tables seemed larger than usual and I was really worried about the space on my table so I had to be clever with my display, what do you think?
There are a lot of crafters in the area that came to the event so I had a lot of fun conversations taking about craft techniques and took the opportunity to plug this blog (if I met you at New Milton, Hi! *waves*).
Sales weren't great but I have ideas for new products in the future and people signed up to my newsletter. (Some exciting news coming in the next 2 weeks!!).
The following weekend I was at Royston....
I love Royston, it is such a well organised event by Laura from Kozmic Dreams. She is so passionate and has worked so hard promoting the event and managed to get featured in local press. The Mayor came along and spent time taking to all the stallholders, it was lovely to meet her.
There is a good variety of stalls and I was opposite the tea room, Vintage Allsorts, which serves tea in vintage teapots and cups.
Of course after staring at the cupcakes all day I did have a snickers one and it was delicious!!
From June it will be monthly, unfortunately I can't make the June and July dates so I will be back there in August and every month until the end of the year.
I'll be back at the Little Fox this month and you can see all the craft fairs I have booked for the year here.
