Whether you're preparing for your first craft fair, an old hand at setting up your stall or just a happy customer, you'll enjoy these hilarious tales from our craft fair veterans. If you didn't laugh, you'd cry.

Myself and Claire (of The Bellwether) have been selling our wares at craft fairs for over ten years. In this zine we share our worst experiences for your amusement plus tips on how to avoid a bad craft fair and be a good customer or organiser. We also rounded up some friends for even more stories and advice.

Your download also includes a printable fun activity section with colouring in, quiz and BINGO. Buy a copy and you'll never be bored out of your mind at a poorly-attended craft "fayre" again.
