Living and learning at the Umbrella Fair…

So it’s now nearly a week since the Umbrella Fair and the dust has settled. We sold forty books between us which is more than some of us expected and less than others hoped, but everyone sold something so we’re chuffed.

What we learned was that we wouldn’t do open air events again where we have to book in advance. This weekend (20-21 August) was one of the wettest and windiest of the year so we spent much of the time trying to stop the gazebo from either flying away or ripping, or both. We failed, and the gazebo was too damaged to use on the Sunday so we blagged space in a neighbouring tent which was great except that we shared with a donated book stall so this, and the weather, meant we could have done better. We were also placed opposite a rock music tent which proved too loud at times, to the point where those browsing left after a few seconds.

Still, it was fun, we were all thrilled when asked to sign our books and that people we don’t know will be reading what we have put many hours into.

The pictures below show Christine… Joy, Morgen and Ryta… Heather (mentioned in Morgen’s chick lit novel The Serial Dater’s Shopping List) and Morgen, and our ‘blagged’ tent.
