Castle Combe Steam & Vintage Rally

Days of preparation, and the two day fair is over! 
I'm so tired.

This weekend I attended the Castle Combe Steam & Vintage Rally, and you would have found me in the craft marquee. 

Unfortunately it wasn't as busy as last year, but it was still certainly packed with red lobster burnt looking people! 

On Saturday, the sun was beaming, it was a stunning day, but the football, and the Royal Bath & West Show certainly took away the visitors for the day. But today, Sunday, even at 10:00am when the gates opened it was all hustle and bustle with potential customers walking about!

It's very interesting, stood there, watching people come into the craft marquee, and do the rounds, studying everyones stall, not buying, then starting from the beginning again with purses and wallets in hand! 

I found my best customers to be the husband and wife team! The lady likes, the husband retrieves wallet from back pocket, and outcomes the dosh! Voila!

I often find that there is usually a jewellery trend at fairs. 
You either sells lots of necklaces, bracelets, pendants, rings, and whatever else you sale... this weekend my earrings were flying off the stands...? 

Why? Maybe it's the sunshine.

Here are some piccies of my stall
