The UK is without doubt one of the most creative and diverse places on Earth. The talent of makers and artists needs a vent, a channel that allows both new and experienced people the chance to market and sell their work. They also need to network with their peers and exchange ideas and experiences. The craft fair can be that channel. It challenges people, it inspires and motivates people to do better and more. Supporting your local craft fairs as a visitor, purchaser, supporter helps to grow the community and encourage further creative, social and community wealth.

Discover the improved Click and Collect

This unique service helps to support your local craft events, whilst allowing exhibitors to take advance orders from customers. It removes the effort and cost involved with postage and packaging for both the buyer and the seller. It is commission free, allowing exhibitors the option to pass on some of the benefits to the customer with a small discount. With no listing fees, the cost of adding items is removed, allowing exhibitors to show their full range.

Exhibitors adding items to their shop, can quickly and easily make them available through Click and Collect, when also listing events they are attending.

The calendar

The calendar is looking nicer as it has been improved for mobile, tablet and across multiple browsers. The calendar key has been compressed and hidden but can still be revealed using the drop down. The page title and the date are smaller and have been added as part of the calendar itself.

One really nice new time saving feature is being able to search for events - this weekend - or - next weekend. These special searches group together a couple of day and display the results.

The calendar button is also available within the new mobile header, so it is really quick to get.

The mobile header

If you are using the UKCraftFairs site on a smart phone or tablet, you will want to be able to quickly jump to important pages.

The redesigned mobile header displays three symbol buttons (Home, Calendar and Interactions), in addition to the hamburger menu.

When pressed or clicked the home icon takes you to the sites home page, the calendar icon takes you to the calendar displaying todays date, the envelope will take you to the interactions page (when logged in). If you have new unanswered messages or messages that you have not marked as read, then the amount will appear in an alert next to the envelope.

When you are using a larger screen you will still see all these icons plus additional text.

Click and collect

Just imagine being able to Click and then Collect a handmade item at a craft fair or directly from the makers shop. Well now for the first time ever, you can!

We wanted to create something new, as an alternative to home delivery but what is so good about Click and Collect on UKCraftFairs? It saves the maker money because there are no commission fees, it saves the buyer money on delivery and packaging costs, the buyer gets to meet the maker and gets out of the house, also the maker gets a new customer.

Makers, add your handmade items and events attending or shop and the rest is done for you.
