Stallholder Membership

Would you like to part of this dynamic, energetic organisation? Travelling from one fair to the next, forging great friendships and meeting a vast range of different people. You get to visit historic houses that you would never be allowed into and exercise parts of your body that a normal workout does not reach, all whilst raising lots of money for charity. To say nothing of the profits you could make!

  • This is the old traditional way of selling, where the shoppers want to be told about the secrets behind a product, where they appreciate quality and uniqueness, where they like to spend time chatting, browsing and trying on the clothes.
  • It’s the feeling that when you sell you are supporting a charity as well – Usually 10% of your takings go to the charity at the fairs.
  • It’s not just the selling, it is the conversations you remember.
  • It’s having the time to talk with your customers and seeing them each year when they come back to their favourite fair.

Being a member also gives you
