I might or might not go this Easter. Really depends on how much is outside.As that is the only real chance of getting a bargain or something interesting in Studio Pottery.
Inside is for looking. Studio is going to be too expensive for me. But the selection of modern glass, Poole, ad Art Pottery is truly excellent. Amazing just to stand and stare.

the last few years I have managed to find 1 bargain each fair  that will pay for my visit and can be resold immediately, so it's a free day out with a chance of finding something to complete a collection

done OK considering I'm selling at the moment. Only brought 4 pieces but sold 2 to cover my entry and diesel so not too bad at all.

I'm looking forward to it, biggest problem is finding quality pieces at the right price. Its good that people go to buy rather than just spend the day 'mooching about' - at least on the Friday.

Very very busy fair, I did extremely well ( for me ) including having a good day on Saturday - the 'moochers' day.
