« on: April 01, 2015, 11:10:32 am »
Hello i am looking for some good craft fairs or markets were i can sell my crafts only looking for a couple per year and some around christmas time tried several last year my local markets were great but some of the bigger ones which cost alot to get in to were hopeless i make wooden items mainly using my scroll saw, pyrography and driftwood its my hobby so any money i make just helps me buy more wood ect if anyone knows of any markets or fairs that are good for selling it would greatly appreciated

Hi wolf :wave: ,

The Makers Market at Eype, held at Highlands End Park near Bridport, Dorset pre-Christmas, would be a good place for your lovely items.  Very happy with the things I bought last year.

Hi Wolf

Bit of a trek for you but Earthfest nr Malvern (every Autumn) would be right up your street I reckon!  I make and sell jewellery using old guitar strings from local musicians and did really well at last EF.
Also if you can get into a few music festivals you get to enjoy a day of decent live music plus make a bit of cash I've found.  A lot of the more eco-friendly festi's have lots of people coming along who want to buy items like yours  :)
