I’ve done a couple of fairs in the lead up to Christmas this year, one of them was meant to run from 11 til 3. It wasn’t well supported, probably not widely advertised, and by 12.30 several stalls were packing up and going. I felt quite uncomfortable - leaving early seemed rude to the organisers and left gaps in the hall making it look less appealing to customers coming in the door. However, it was very quiet and some stallholders made no sales.
I stayed until 2.15, by which time everyone was packing, but I wondered what other people think - what should you do in this situation?
