Outside Parking 
for vans
You have a few options for parking but the one above is ideal if you have a van as it has no height restrictions
1, We supply a 6ft Unit and seating, please ensure that you do not cover the front of this with your own table cover. You can use your table cover as a topper if you wish but please don't have this hanging over the front, as requested by Centre Management.
2, Please ensure that no eating or drinking is done behind you stand as requested my Centre Management this must be done away from your table.
3, Please make sure you are set up with all trolleys, boxes or hazards cleared away for the public opening times which can be seen above. We also cannot have hazards on the mall floor before the public leave the Centre at the end of the day, this is a Health and Safety Issue. If you have to leave early please call us and we will arrange and escort.

1, The Crafters who continuously do well are the ones who have spent a little time thinking about their presentation, remember we are in a high quality retail environment and the public expect a certain level of sharpness.
2, It's not all about what you earn on the day use this opportunity to hand out business cards and gain new excited customers who have never seen your product before. The leaders in Craft all do this gaining them returning customers and sales out within going to events.
3, The biggest of them all that everyone doesn't like to do is COLLECT EMAILS Yes! I know you hate it but you must start now building a mailing list to send out information about you and your company to your excited new customers who want to know more!!! You don't need to send them out all the time just as little as once a month. Tell them about new products your working on (not selling) Tell them your next event or how about a genuine special offer.

Run a raffle of something really good that you create and have a draw once a month from March-December (normal Craft event trading times) that's just 10 items. It has to be a high valued items ( you have to make it worth it to ask for their email, a genuine offer) now we know this won't cost you a lot and
think what you will gain, NEW customers all year long who are interested in you and your products. The best Crafters collect around 10 emails per day, could you collect more? Please try this and tell me about how much it's working for you.

Look up www.mailchimp.com it's one of the best FREE email marketing service provider and the one we use. OK we now pay for it because our database is so large but it's well worth the money.
Use the car park above for cars and jeeps
