Hi, I've been lucky enough to get a stand at Hugglets in September..this is my very first show..Ever! Up till now I have just sold my bears on Bearpile and my Facebook page. So my questions are 1 Do I need insurance? 2 Does it need to be specific to doing a show..eg public liability? And any recommendations as to which insurance company's are good? I'm in England and also what do we call ourselves on the insurance!..Artists?.. Thanks.xx
Yes, you do need to have public and products liability insurance.
I used to use GM Imber's Craftinsure Starter policy which is around £50 for the year. Unfortunately this policy doesn't cover selling overseas though.

I am currently with a-n. It's £36 for the year to become a member of a-n.co.uk, which includes public and product liability insurance (this includes cover for items sold to USA and Canada etc).
