Fabulous Festive Fair

Our third My Favourite Things... fair has been and gone and was a great success.
We had a lovely bunch of talented makers and as always, a great lot of visitors and a super atmosphere.
We all had a great time and the four hours flew by!
Here are a few snaps of the day, all taken before the customers arrived as it was pretty busy afterwards

We had some nice comments left in the book, here are a few

"Super selection of stalls - really high quality products and some really amazing talent. Glad I saved up to visit: bought something from 5 stalls! Many thanks - keep up the fabulous work".

"Fabulous fair, looking forward to next month. Tea and carrot cake was delicious"

"Excellent - lovely variety of things to buy"

Thanks to the stallholders and visitors.

See you in December!

More Festive Fair stall holders

Here are a couple more of our fab stallholders who will be attending the festive fair.
Sarah from Shabby Shed Creations is bringing a varied lot of lovely goodies to sell.
Here is just a small a taster

Dawn is a talented artist who is branching out into jewellery inspired by the sea, she will also be bringing some of her note cards and paintings, I believe, which are also stunning.
Dawn's website is well worth a visit.
What beautiful colours...

Also to tempt you, we have the price list available for the tea room.
All the bakes are handmade by Carol. Why not treat yourself to a cuppa and slice of cake at the fair or a 
slice (or two!) to take home?

Spotlight on four more Super Stallholders

Today I'm sharing some more of our fabulous stallholders.
I wish Love Letters had been around when my almost 19 year old was a child, he has a christian name that was uncommon when he was a child (but heard much more often now) and buying things with his name on was impossible. These pictures are hand painted and I would have loved to have bought him something like this!
Also joining us will be Shabby Shed Creations, this stall has a varied lot of makes - sewn textiles, notebooks, pictures and much more
I am lucky enough to own several things made by Camilla's Crafts (incorporating Camilla's Crochet) and can vouch for the loveliness of them.
This stall will also have some vintage items for sale.
Finally for today we have Mrs Bramble's Emporium.
Mrs Bramble really cannot be fussed to unpack her makes to photograph them, so here is a photograph she took on  Wednesday when experimenting with her stall layout! She will be selling cards, textile items, magnets and more.
