Liability Insurance

Because BLW isn't just for lentil-weavers. Some of us like to piddle about with bits of felt and sticky-backed plastic as well.

Liability Insurance

Do any of you who have stalls at craft fairs etc have liability insurance? Can you recommend an insurance company for it?

Cheers

I have public liability through artists network (a-n air) which worked out the cheapest.

I completely forgot to reply to these, how rude, sorry. t&ns mummy thanks for the link, I've gone with them. The artists network thingy looked good but for, you know, artists, not dabblers like moi. Market is on Saturday. I have stock, price labels, sticky labels and bags, and a collage print of my cakes to put up too. Wibble.

Good luck... Business cards? Note book and pen for er notes/contact details of customers etc, lots of change...scissors and tape (I always have it but never use it, however I'm always asked to loan it to people??)

Thank you! I have cake business cards but not any for the crochet side yet, I'm still unsure of whether to go for it as a 'proper' thing or not so trying to keep cost down. I have stickers with business name, contact details and fb page URL on, which I'm planning to use to seal bags of purchases, and will stick some on the back of cake business cards to make a double sided card iyswim. Pens and notebook, check. Will add tape and scissors to ensure popularity :) :wink:
