The school fete is fast approaching, so I have been raking my brain and the internet for some inspiration. As usual….lots of ideas….not a lot of time/money to create some craft stall winners.
So….. what I would love from you is some feedback.
What should I (and my band of crafting mumma’s) be spending our hours making? Please let me know in the comments below what you would buy at a school fete and a rough price. Also if you have kids….ask them. Lots of kids bought things from the craft stall last year. I would love their feedback too.
