Enville Village Show 2019

Enville Village Show 2019

On Bank Holiday Monday, (just gone), I took the Lady Saddler stand to the Enville Village show. "I have an affinity with this show" It is the village in which we live and so not only do I love to give them my support, it's also where I launched the business' first trade stand in 2017 and so I have an affinity with this show. All Things Western Every year there is a theme to the show. This year it was all things western and we were encouraged to dress as a cowboy or girl. In the rush to get everything completed on time I forgot the dress code. However, it was great to see some people had put on their checked shirts, cowboy boots and/or hats. ***Note to oneself - remember the dress code next year. lol :-)*** Busy Day The weather was glorious, all day; in fact a little too warm at one point but thankfully the Gazebo gave us some shade. I was so...

First Trade Stand of the Year

First Trade Stand of the Year

Event in Wolverley On Sunday 2nd June I attended the Wolverley Country Craft Fair and Fun Dog Show with my trade stand. It was really nice getting the trade stand back out again, especially after last year's disaster, when the gazebo blew over by a freak gush of wind. Just before Christmas, my wonderful husband found another gazebo online that was second-hand but was better quality for a not such a bad price, so off he went in his truck to pick it up. Networking "Much prefer to talk to people than sell to them" Usually, I attend these local events to network with people more than sell to them, as I'm pretty useless at being a sales person and would much prefer to talk to people than sell to them. As long as people are taking an interest in what I'm doing and take a card (just in case), then that makes me happy. Products & Services on offer I made some different coloured stirrup keyrings this year,...

Spring Craft Fair 2018

Spring Craft Fair 2018

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 full-time 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...
