The following weekend is Easter, there is a non-league groundhop in Devon on the Thurs, Fri & finishing late Saturday evening, might catch a few on their way home on the Sunday?

Although that would be Easter Sunday.

Not sure what you need to know Infoman, the majority of viewers won't have a Scooby about whether its a good or bad idea.

You're local to the area so you should have some knowledge about the logistics. As you well know, after being to all the fairs that you've been to, that, finding a good venue is key. Speaking from personal experience it also helps if you can get assistance from others.

It's fair to say International weekends appeal to sellers and punters alike because there's less fixtures to worry about.

The Great Lancashire Fair is on the Sunday but that shouldn't affect a fair in Bristol.

I’ve emailed John about this but thought I’d ask here too, in order to gauge interest from others.

Is there any interest in a footballl shirt stall at this fair? I’d be selling programmes also, and I have a good stock of other football memorabilia too ie sticker albums, books and magazines and more.

Also, what is the usual footfall for this fair please? Any info greatly appreciated!

NWM Football attending !

Have previously had stalls there when the much-missed Gordon organised a couple of events there, and have also been at an Antiques Fair at same venue. Very good sized room, so plenty of space to accommodate a good selection of dealers.

Are tables provided at the venue or is it just an area you’re designated?

Bumping this as a reminder that it’s tomorrow. It’ll be my first ever fair selling, I’ll be the one with the rack of football shirts, as well as some programmes and other bits too. Come say hello! Paul.

Good fair today, I think it was 10 stall holders and approx 40 or 50 people through the door. Really enjoyed it!

Thanks to John for organising it, and it was great to meet some very nice people too.
