Top Ten Craft Fair Essentials

In the run up to Christmas we're attending a few craft fairs, so far the essentials list reads as follows:

1. Jewellery - labelled and priced
2. White tablecloth
3. Wooden bowls, mirror and boxes for display,
4. Business cards, sign or banner saying who you are, where to find your work after the fair and accepted payment details
5. Gift wrapping bits - pillow boxes, tissue paper, raffia, tags and brown paper bags
6. Cash box and float (coins and notes), calculator
7. Receipt book and order forms
8. Stationery - pens, scissors, sellotape, blu tac, notebook for recording sales, customer / contact details
9. Camera
10. Refreshments

got my first one coming up soon.
I was wondering about lighting. Do you take a light or something?

Am going back to a venue that is well lit so not for that one, get in touch with your venue see if you need extra lighting, ask if you will have access to electric socket, will you need extension lead or will you need to find a cute battery powered lamp. Where is it? Good luck!
