First ever craft fair? Check!

21 Sep

At the beginning of the year I wrote a list of things that I wanted to achieve by the end of the year; go to the dentist, get my hair cut ( I seriously HATE the hairdressers!), save money (yea right…), create a website (DONE!) and try to do a craft fair, now DONE! The Guildhall Boutique Market went really well and I enjoyed every minute of it. From setting up stall, to packing everything away into the car in the rain.  I got a lot of interest and people browsing at my stall and managed to sell more than I  ever though I would(confidence is not my strong point!)


I met lovely talented like-minded people, who were all very friendly and keen to give advice. I enjoyed browsing the other stalls (including  of course the talented georgina giles) I also brought this beautiful piece of wall art from Pansy and Chacha.

Lucy Ball’s cakes also went down a storm, especially the lemon and coffee ones! A Very talented baker indeed! She spent all Saturday night baking, scraping, mixing and icing cakes, stopping only for a quick sip of some much needed Vino. We wont mention the fact that she forgot all her cake stands…long live Wilkinsons thats all I have to say!(love you Lucy!!)


So yes , a very successful day all round and I hope that everybody enjoyed themselves. Thank you to Abigail Pallant-Sidaway for letting me be apart of it! I definatly hope to be at the next one! xxx
