Public Liability Insurance

I have been  having a nightmare trying to find reasonably priced PLI to allow me to sell at fairs and shows.  I've have been transferred and passed on and fobbed off!  Companies who wanted to sell me anything but PLI, companies who would only insure for set addresses (Can you limit your selling to just one event in one place, Miss Stott?), A company who couldn't help but recommended my house insurance (!!!) and one who had exactly what I wanted ... for £276 a year.

Then came the crafting community.  All it took was one sad voice and a question on Twitter and the amazing and supportive crafting world came to my rescue with a million-ish suggestions.  

Paying it forward, I have gathered all this information into a list below in the hope that it will be useful for others too.  Please feel free to copy/steal/link etc

I have no experience of any of these (yet) so I offer no comment but please feel free to recommend, or not, if you have used any of these policies.
