Well, here we are – my first day at the Hatfield House Christmas Frost Fair. I’ve not done this event before, so I have no idea what to expect. Markets are very strange things. Some may be busy but just be the wrong market for me and I struggle to cover my costs. Others may be quiet with other traders complaining, and I do really well. You never can tell in advance and even the same fair may be totally different from one year to another. I could have a quiet 4 days building up a bit more stock for St.Albans, or I may be run off my feet and go to St.Albans empty-handed. Either way, I have my glamorous assistant with me today so that I can keep turning. It’ll be a different glamorous assistant tomorrow, a third on Saturday and yet another on Sunday. Aren’t I blessed!
