I’m a bit more awake now, so I thought I would bring you a few more tales from the Kilndown craft fair. As it was my first fair I had no idea what to expect, so I was nervous and excited in equal measures. But I needn’t have worried as the fair organisers and my fellow stall holders were a lovely bunch; friendly, welcoming and happy to share the benefit of their experience.
I was one of a group of three stalls with Gill:
a seasoned pair of fair goers who were very generous with their welcome and advice. They were both very amused when I pulled out my camera and started taking photos of my mid afternoon cake.
Despite the misty autumn weather, everyone made a big effort with their stalls and I was impressed with work on offer. There were lovely textiles from Tracy Roberts:
beautiful crochet and vintage textiles from Wendy and Shelley
some lovely woodworking with local wood – these spoons caught my eye:
and some lovely vintage homewares:
All in all an enjoyable and encouraging first outing.
