Our Christmas fair was another Saturday event, and although visitor numbers were not as high as we had hoped, we still saw just over 90 people come through the door.
The visitors that did join us spent well, with 81% of customers making a purchase and the average sale being £10.51.
Two of our stallholders did not cover their table cost, but most others made a reasonable profit. The average amount taken per table was £56.
There were no spectacular sales figures for the fair, and more of an even spread across stalls. Having said that two stallholders managed over £100 and two just over £80.
It was a lovely atmosphere at the event and the stallholders enjoyed making new contacts. We have had multiple re-bookings for our 2019 fairs.

Fabled Silver is a handmade silver jewellery brand, focusing on using recycled silver in combination with sea glass and semi-precious stones to create magical and vibrant jewellery pieces. The motivation behind my brand is to make affordable, environmentally friendly jewellery that comes from the heart.
