Whitstable Craft & Gift Fair

Well *cough* apologies for not posting pictures before now. I did say I was going to post up some pics of the bits I'd been working on to take with me to the fair at Whitstable, but alas time slipped away, so albeit a bit belated, here are a few of the textile treasures that traveled with me to the fair on Saturday.

some colourful bloom brooches


fragrant shabby chic hearts


more petite and clutch purses


what more clutch purses?!?


And so to the Fair.................


the sweet building we were all tucked away inside


a few pics of my stand


my clearance area! well everyone likes a tidy up and a clear out of older items!


my wee birds just wanting to be let free and given new homes!


And for your delectation here are Two for Joy Originals! they have a wee shop on etsy, not fully stocked yet compared to their beautifully vibrant and colourful stall at the fair. Gorgeous work ladies, so covetable!


I couldn't resist this wee monster from them, I've yet to name him/her?......


And the most lovely and wonderful Helen of Simply H Designs, a shot of her stall, although many items had already found new homes by the time I got round there with my camera to snap it!


Helen's dolls and mermaids are sooooo sweet!


Phew! what can I say?! Thank you Helen for having a last spare stall for me to jump in and take part! It was a fab day, made good sales (yay!), met some lovely peeps and now have even found myself volunteering to do a small workshop during Whitstable Oyster Festival!!???? what moi??!!! will keep you posted as and when I know more. I've never taught in my life, but I like a challenge!
Hope you're all enjoying the gorgeous sunshine! ;0 X
