Craft Fair

Sunday’s are usually a day of rest for me and a time to catch up with the family before the working week starts again on a Monday, but today we had a table at a spring craft fair not too far from home.

Networking Group

A year or so ago I joined a free networking group called Networking Mummies (Wolverhampton) or NMW for short.

Initially, I met them online via their Facebook group but eventually when my day job allowed it I attended a couple of their meetings that took place at a local hotel.

The group membership is mainly of women who have their own business as well as juggling a fulltime career and/or children.

The group arranges seasonal events for the members to take part in where we can sell our wares or showcase our business service, whichever is most appropriate for us.

Bantock Park

The Spring Craft Fair was taking place at Bantock Park in Wolverhampton and is the first for us this year and with this group.

I didn’t take much in the way of stock to sell because I didn’t really intend to anything, especially as I usually prefer to make bespoke items.

However, I did take some belts and dog collar’s, that were left over from last years’ trade stand and are still for sale.

I then made a couple of new key rings and bracelets, just for something else to display as well as a few tools and some leather to showcase what I do.

It was a slightly damp day outside but we were all inside, so that was ok.

The footfall of people was constant with a lovely mix of young, old, parents and grandparents coming in and taking business cards and/or chatting to stall holders.

I managed to chat to a few people who remembered the olden days when saddler’s and leather work was much more popular in Walsall than it is now and I chatted to others who would really like something specifically made either for themselves, their pet or as a gift, so hopefully, I can fulfil their desires.

Future Events

I have a few shows and fairs booked throughout the forthcoming year, so if ever you are out and about and you see the Lady Saddler logo, then be sure to pop by and say hello.
