    Hi there,
    I am really interested in being a stallholder at some of your events, particularly the craft fairs and the alternative wedding fair. My business is called the little shop of lathers and I make natural bath products, soaps, bath bombs, bath melts, salts, etc.
    If you could give me an idea of prices for stalls I would really appreciate it.
    Kind regards

    • Hi Carol – I’ve e-mailed you and forwarded our e-mails from earlier this summer. I reckon I need to announce to the world we are full for November 18th and December 2nd and we have no jewellery spaces anywhere except for the recently added Accessories Evening. If only we had more room!
