My Last Christmas Craft Fair This Season....

Over the past few weeks I've been busy attending various Christmas Fairs, some have been good, some not so good, but I always enjoy myself however the day turns out. On a couple of occasions I've been accompanied by my good friend Carol, who is extremely talented in her own right. Carol produces a stunning bespoke ladies clothing line, along with unusual fabric jewellery, handbags, hats and scarves.
This Christmas my stand has been packed with a variety of goodies to include cards, gift tags, bookmarks, magnets, my boudoir feather dusters, vintage jewellery, journals, gift boxes and much more besides.
As my stock grows it is becoming increasingly difficult to display it all on the standard 6ft table, so when Carol attends with me we take along free standing shelving and other display items to help cope with the large amount of stock. I think next year I'll have to invest in more display ideas!
Setting up the stand is always a favourite part of the day for me, I love tinkering around to get the stand looking just right, it's very satisfying standing back once it's finished and seeing all your hard work on display in one place.

Just look at this gorgeous waistcoat made by Carol, it is soooooo stunning, and the lining inside is just as beautiful.

Above is a shot of my Marie Antoinette paper doll, I just love her, she always gets lots of attention from visitors to my stand.

Above a selection of my handmade journals and Christmas Gift Boxes, these are the last few I have left.
A close up of a fabric brooch made by Carol, pinned onto her beautiful waistcoat, and you can just make out the fabric chain necklace made by Carol also, a great festive piece!

Some more of Carol's fabric jewellery.... beautiful, fun, quirky pieces, that are very unique!

And above, a shot of my fabric Christmas Angels and some of my vintage inspired jewellery, more jewellery below.......

And always popular are my bookmarks, below, these are really good selling items for me, and they make great Christmas gifts.

Here we are below, smiling and ready for action!! LOL!!

Look out later this week for my Christmas Angel Brooches and also a tour of my home decorated for Christmas! Ta, ta for now.
