Heskin Craft Fair and Farmers Market

Our next craft fair is quickly upon us because of the Bank Holiday Monday. We're at Heskin Craft fair in Chorley. It's just past Park Hall/Camelot

I have had such a good response to my framed poems, that I am concentrating on exhibiting a good selection of them as well as the jewellery I make. I had a few more orders for poems over the weekend so hopefully this will continue.

I've also put some of the poems for 'marriage' into slightly more expensive frames which look really nice and great as a wedding present

My website has also recently been updated with the poems so take a look

BC VH Craft Fair

Yes it's the Bromley Cross Village Hall Craft Fair goodness doesn't time fly!!!

We have some great crafters coming along with a few newbies and we're starting up again with outside stalls so if you know of anyone that is used to having an outside stall and has their own gazebo etc, please get in touch.

This month, however, we have a local craftsman who makes everything wood.....tissue boxes, planters, bird houses etc etc so hopefully he'll bring along a really good display and he'll be the first person you come across when visiting the craft fair

We also have paintings, cupcakes, framed poems, cards, knitted items, cushions, cakes, felted scarves and bags, nappy cakes, gifts, forever living and so much more......

Will update my blog and website with pictures shortly

Framed Poems a hit!

Well, that craft fair was an experience!

After one of the women from the shop nearby didn't like the way I'd placed my table (even though everyone previously placed theirs in exactly the same position!!!), and re-positioning it several times, I finally set up but not ideally I have to say as I have too much stuff!!!!!!

It was my framed poems that people wanted and not much else - interesting!!!!!

I also picked up another commission to complete so looking good. AND, I managed to write another poem ready for printing and decorating so not a bad day really

We have a weekend off this week as we are visiting friends in Northampton but back to a busy weekend again 25/26 may when it will be my craft fair in Bromley Cross and also the craft fair at the Last Drop Village

Will put some info on about my framed poems soon.....

Heskins Craft and Farmers Market

Doesn't time fly when you're having fun!!!

Sunday is the next craft fair and it's in Chorley just past Park Hall Hotel/Camelot (no I won't be stopping off for a ride!)

Heskins is run by 2 ladies who converted 2 large buildings into a craft haven. There are lots of lovely permanent stalls selling everything from fresh fruit and veg to meat, jewellery to clothes and so much more

It has an on-site cafe and loads of parking and gets really busy. There's so much to see, it would probably take you a couple of hours easily and then you can have lunch by the fire. Anyways, that's where I'll be, so pop in and have a chat and a mooch round the shops. 

See you soon xx
