What they say

"Thanks for a fab event Saturday in Hadleigh - hope to be at another one of your events soon. keep us posted for the October hadleigh one too please. thank you kindly x"

"I just wanted to say a big thank you for Saturday.  It was my first fair with you and I hope to do more in the future.  You certainly have a good footfall, which is all we can really ask as stallholders, it's then up to us to sell!"

"I really enjoyed today at Hadleigh and I have got home and my online shop at etsy, has had loads of views plus sold a few more pieces to people who were there today.

So Cogs and Gems would like to thank you and can't wait for your future event dates, thank you again."

"I wanted to say how much I enjoyed doing the Lavenham craft fair.  I have to admit at first I was concerned that there might not be as much footfall upstairs, but it was virtually busy all day, plus I had an excellent spot in the centre of the room, so thank you!"
