Lauderdale Carboot Sale - Sunday 24th April 2011

We took a trip to Lauderdale today, one of our favourite hotels for a meal stop whenever we do border events. It was the Lauderdale Rotary Club organising it with all proceeds going to The Lavender Touch.

The event was originally advertised as indoor or outdoor which we booked indoor but because of the lovely weather today they put us all outdoors - glad we took our tables although there were plenty indoors if we wanted to use them.

The only thing I didnt plan for was being outdoors and sunshine i wore the wrong type top it was low cut and I didnt have a cap or sunglasses and boy am I suffering now lol.

The day was very quiet but it was nice sitting in the sunshine and we did manage to get a couple of contacts for good events later this year so it wasnt all a waste of time.

After the event we stayed at the hotel and had Fish & Chips that is a speciality of the Lauderdale Hotel and they didnt let us down today they were as scrummy as ever.

Leven High Street Easter Fair - Saturday 23 April 2011

After both Pauline & Claire said they couldnt make it, I was a bit gutted as I had already paid £20 for this so invited Brian who jumped at the chance and also drove me over

The weather wasnt as nice as last year it rained lightly on and off most of the day until just not long after lunch when the heavens opened and we decided around 3pm to call it a day

Although the weather wasnt as nice as last year people were still about and buying so it wasnt all that bad but could have been better

Have been invited back to their Summer event but not sure what Pauline will be doing and don't really want to keep annoying Brian for a lift all the time as he is coming out of his way to pick me up but we shall see what happenes

Feeling A Wee Bit Sad

Feeling a wee bit sad as due to personal reasons I had to give up my little space at the Hairdressing Salon, I will miss the day to day banter but on the plus side it will give me time to promote my website and Facebook page

Spring Fair In Aid Of Sick Kids - Saturday 16th April 2011

This was a 2 hour event 2pm - 4pm cost £15 per table even although we took our own table and had to give a tombola prize. I felt rotton declining to buy a raffle ticket but they were £2 and after paying for the table and it cost us £3.50  each in parking it became an expensive afternoon

I only made £33.45 so after my outlays I only took home £14.95 so not so sure if I would do this event again.

In all fairness it was the organisers first event organised and it did have a good turnout but lots of stalls there and a few duplicates so perhaps a lot of competition although I had my pocket money toys today so no competition for me - will see what happens when the next one is announced

Glenrothes Art Club - Summer Fair Saturday 9th April 2011

Were invited back to this one from last year's visit, although I do have to say that the turnout although busy wasnt as great as their Christmas fair.

I decided to take only my pound lines and they went really well, so will keep this in mind for any future events here.

Came home was intending to tidy up before beginning to sort out my new Jewellery delivery only to fall asleep at the pc woke up very sore indeed but had a good sleep believe it or not so im now about to attack my jewellery order and get the web and facebook page updated

Mayfield Gymnastics Summer Fair - Thursday 7th April 2011

What a lovely night for a summer fair.

It was in the main hall again which is a large spacious hall, they put on a good night, it was well attended by families, there was a bouncy castle, dj and lots of games for the children which made the night, as some of these events can be quite boring if it is just stalls etc.

Not a lot of stalls which was good, I was selling my pocket money toys at this with some pieces of jewellery and hair accessories. Had a good night sales wise and was home before 9pm so good night in all

Davidson's Mains Children's Gala Carboot Sale/Indoor sale Saturday 2nd April 2011

An event to raise funds to help put the gala day on (11th June)

Well yesterday's weather was fantastic, as a trader I was indoors at this event, there were lots of visitors but didnt make much, never even covered my table costs.

I think the main problem was that there were too many jewellery stalls, infact the whole hall was full of mainly jewellery and cards so from the point of view of a visitor this must have been very boring for them.
