We start planning Spring Fair in Feb as the previous one closes and we have to decide what to do about space for the following year. But then we put it to one side.

What we should be doing on the final day is making a list of all the little things that make the subsequent show so much easier:

* how many new bulbs to buy

* top up the stationery box with staples and pens that actually work

* how many display stands are now at the end of their lives and need replacing

* remove any items from the stock samples that have definitely sold out

* jot down any ideas about improving the stand - don't rely on your memory as once order processing starts, these ideas will be filed away in the depths of your brain only to resurface on day one of the next show

Wishing all Spring Fair exhibitors a great show next week!
