Frequently Asked Questions
How do I get a stall at SoLo Craft Fair?
The best way to stay up to date is to sign up to our mailing list as subscribers will be informed of all our events.
If there are applications available you will see them under a ‘Become a Stallholder’ tab.
How much does a stall cost?
Cost of stalls are completely dependent on the location of the market and size of the stall. We endeavor to keep costs down as much as possible and put a large percentage of stall holder fees back into marketing for the event. Table prices range from £25 - £75.
Can I run a workshop at one of you events?
As long as you have public liability insurance and a valid and clear DBS we'd love to hear from you. We give free stalls to workshops to encourage a range of creativity at our events. Please email us with information of what you do.
Do I need insurance to sell with SoLo Craft Fair?
Yes. Having public liability insurance is extremely important to cover yourself and your customers should the worst happen at a market. We do not accept any stall holders who do not have or are willing to purchase public liability insurance.

Can I perform at one of your markets?
Yes! Some of our markets have spaces for bands and other acts. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with information of what you do and which location you'd like to perform. Unfortunately, we cannot pay performers but we will promote on many platforms.
How do you promote your markets?
We promote our markets using the normal techniques such as social media and listings sites. In addition to this, we are listed in many 'what's on' apps, have had articles in many publications such as Time Out and we send out over 10,000 flyers per event to the surrounding areas.
What sort of stall holders can apply?
We mainly focus on crafters and vintage traders, we generally have stalls selling art, jewellery, homeware and fashion. However, we are open to 'interactive' stalls such as beauticians as long as they have all the relative qualifications. Generally our venues are pubs so we can rarely accept hot food traders. Cakes & sweets are normally fine if you have all the relevant documentation and permissions from the local council.
I'm a fashion based stall can I bring a rail?
You can do, though if you have opted for a table option then it will incur an additional cost due to space restrictions. A lot of our fashion stalls would opt for a pitch only space when bringing rails. If you are unsure of what would be best then please email us at email@example.com
Can I write about SoLo Craft Fair?
Yes! Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for a press release and any questions you may have.
How do I become a guest blogger on your site?
We love to have a collection of different writers on our blog whether you're a crafter, musician or author - we'd love to share your creative tale. Please email us with your ideas.
