Book your space today at one of our six venues
If you make homemade jams, honey, cakes, sweets, have a food hygiene rating and insurance, why not have a table at our fayres.
If you make handmade items, paint or draw, or maybe a photographer, then we are the fayre to book a table with.
We also have a few tables available at our fayres for sellers of preloved (second hand) items. We must however request that preloved stalls do not sell jewellery, out of respect to our sellers who make hand crafted jewellery.
We are a symbiotic business, whereby what we do also helps others and the local community.
We offer a free space at any of our events for local charities or fundraisers to run a stall.
Small businesses who can help us make our fayres even more special, (i.e. bouncy castle business, face painter, entertainer, food business) are very welcome to attend, as not only does it advertise their business, but widens the audience for the small businesses who are selling at our events.
We also work alongside some local councillors and local groups who have been very helpful in extending our remit within the community.
When you support a small business, you are supporting a dream!
My name is Cath and alongside my husband Pat, ran a successful pre-school in Formby for over seventeen years. Since selling that on in 2018 due to health reasons, I started crafting items such as jewellery, hanging gemstone items and others. I took over running a craft fayre I regularly sold at which had closed, and found I really enjoyed setting up and running them. We now run four at different venues.
My motivation comes from the sellers who attend our events. The feeling I have watching them sell their crafts and interacting with each other and customers/visitors to our fayres is all worthwhile. For a person to come along and buy something they have designed and made is amazing. We also have a selection of stallholders at our fayres with preloved items, one just never knows what interesting items will be found on their tables. All our sellers are small businesses in one way or another, and we love to support them.
Our fayres have been made possible by those who've helped us along the way. Close family especially, who help with every event they can. Not to mention the sellers attending our fayres, fayre venues, customers and friends who all give ongoing support.
