Our Taster Stall scheme is specifically designed to encourage new artists and crafts people to participate with Craft*folK at our Cardiff Christmas Market.
They are a very affordable way of test trading your work, especially during the Christmas Market, when our customers are always looking for new ideas and that ideal gift for the “person who has everything”.
The taster stall trading periods at the 2019 Cardiff Christmas Market are:
|Period 1||Thursday 14 to Monday 18 November||5 days|
|Period 2||Tuesday 19 to Saturday 23 November||5 days|
|Period 3||Sunday 24 to Saturday 30 November||7 days|
|Period 4||Sunday 1 to Saturday 7 December||7 days|
|Period 5||Sunday 8 to Saturday 14 December||7 days|
|**Period 6||Sunday 15 to Saturday 21 December||7 days|
**Please note that stalls located in our Taster Area in Trinity Street will close two days earlier, on the 21 December 2019, due to the logistics involved in dismantling so many stalls in just one night.
With the wealth of knowledge gleaned from organising and participating in events for many years we are also happy to advise any new artists and crafts people on any aspect of participating with us as having the courage to sell your work to customers, other than friends and family, can be very daunting and additional encouragement is sometimes needed. A PowerPoint Presentation is also available on request containing tips and hints on stall set up, lighting etc
We also offer taster stalls at both our Spring and Summer events in Cardiff City Centre together with an offer during our Summer event of having a “Trial Run” where shorter slots may be available of 4 or 3 day duration, depending on uptake. However, these further discounted stalls are only available if you are a new exhibitor to Craftfolk and have already been accepted to take part in a Taster Stall at the Cardiff Christmas Market. It is an ideal way of experimenting with your stall set up and lighting so that you can get the most out of your time with us at the Christmas Market from day one.
