Now never had the joy of Belvoir Castle as its usually submerged but Blenheim is a great earner and really very busy for traders. In fact if you can see any floor space between the isles its because you are pissed and lying on it. Ragley Hall near Evesham was so quiet I expected tumble weed to blow around. Dont get me wrong but spending money for a pitch at the CLA usually guarantees a good income, we bought twice the size of Blenheims pitch only to see takings down by a third. I like to tow an empty ish trailer home but I'm no mug and not cutting my prices like some traders just for the game fair to the point where you make no profit. There are plenty of fools doing that so if the trend continues there will be no traders. I wont bother with mythering the CLA for a discount as they dont care, they werent even interested when on opening day the data network crashed and no one could take cards or call the tech support line! We actually raised our prices with new stock (exclusive to us) for the show and it sold well but when these bargain hunters get home and want to buy more from the cut price johnnies they will have a fit. Our prices include shipping in the UK and in fact whilst away we had plenty of online orders in. I can see if this level of price cutting and low attendance continues then the traders will drift away and the shows will fold!
