Ibstock Country Fair

Well to say it has been a busy weekend is a mild understatement. On Saturday we made our way up to Leeds to see Ed Sheeran (Brilliant Gig) and having arrived home in the small hours of yesterday morning I posted Darren out the door nice and early for a day at The Ibstock Country Fair.

The show as always was every bit a success with a wide variety attractions and trade stands but unfortunately for us things did not work out so well with sales well down on the previous six years despite the bumper attendance.

I quite often believe that sometimes you can over attend events to the point where people expect you to be there and coupled with a change in peoples spending habits and the market now being flooded with Pebble Art it was inevitable at some point the effect would be felt.

Despite our poor sales the event was still enjoyable with some great attractions and stalls and of course the weather held which was a real bonus given the past few weeks.
