Extremely disappointed in the Sunday craft fair at the Salford City Stadium!

Hardly anyone came through the doors which was unbelievable as it's such a big place and supposedly very well advertised. however, there were no banners on the roads leading up to it, no posters around the area, no signs on the road to the stadium, no posters in or around the stadium......mmmm

All the advertising seemed to be done online - a high percentage of the people who attend these events like signs to let them know what's going on and where it is so I suppose it's no wonder there were no customers.

There were around 40 stallholders and I'm not sure many of them will be returning or giving it positive feedback - such a shame as it's a nice venue!

Well a weekend off this week then back to a full weekend of craft fairs - GREAT!

Salford City Stadium Craft & Gift Fair

Busy busy busy!

Our next craft fair is at the former Salford City Stadium on Sunday 17 November and it's on from 11 until 4. it's for a great charity

I've also been busy drawing, painting and making pictures and gift boxes in readiness.

Here are some of my smaller pictures that measure around 4" x 3" and are silver plated photo frames

As you can see they're only £3 - bargain eh!

One of my drawings/paintings is below. he took me a few hours to draw then paint and frame but really pleased with him lol. I've also done one of Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck and Winnie the Pooh with Tigger. There's a picture of my stall below and you can just see Mickey on the stand

So, let me know what you think and what other drawings I should be attempting!

See you on Sunday!
