Crafty Castle Cary
January 13, 2012
So, it was craft fair time just before Christmas. Kilver Court in Shepton Mallet didn’t run one this year, so I was hoping to do the 2 fairs nearest Christmas at Frome’s Cheese and Grain. Unfortunately the lady running it, after about 5 weeks of me asking her, finally told me there wasn’t space. So a few weeks ago I did a stall at Caryford Hall in Castle Cary. Having seen the type of shops in Castle Cary High Street (lovely little shops that I love, but quite expensive) I decided to risk the £25 pitch fee. I’m glad I did – I did very well and was my most successful craft fair yet. From a buyer’s point of view I’d recommend it too – there was a really nice variety of crafts and lots of choice for Christmas gifts. To be honest, several of the stalls were selling higher priced items, so were out of a lot of visitors’ budget, and they didn’t do so well. Perhaps the local rich people were busy shopping in the High Street! However, the fact that the hall is a bit out of town, meant that people had made an effort to go there, and were therefore ready to spend their money if they saw things they liked.
