It’s lots of fun but a LOT of work too. You have to promote like mad and so it helps if you are doing it linked to a charity that you are passionate about ( as I am with Macmillan) . It’s the 3rd year I’ve done it and so people know it’s coming up and come along with a view to starting their Xmas shopping.
Given that people will have to travel to get to you, you’;d have to really push it as an event and perhaps a weekend would work best and get some other well networked people involved to help with promotion. I live in a large village adjoining a market town, and lot of people attend b4/after school pick/after work up so I timed to fit in with that. I sell and get as many donations from ad hoc visits AFTER the main coffee morning day so it is worth me being ‘open’ all the following week. This pattern would perhaps not work so well for you?
