Fun & Frolics at the Mid Winter Fair.... PART 1

This is such a large post that I have decided to split it into two parts, so here we have Part 1....  This years Wealden Mid Winter Fair, held in the beautiful surroundings of Bedgebury Pinetum in Kent, was a roaring success, from the moment the doors opened on Thursday morning I didn't seem to come up for air until late afternoon... it was fantastic, so many lovely people came shopping over the three days.
Maygreen Fairies stand was full to the brim with lots of goodies from Cards and Tags to Jewellery, Altered Art, Vintage Style Cushions and Lavender Pillows.
Lots of Christmas Shoppers browsed round the Stand and I sold out of many items on the first day, which was wonderful.  Thank you to all my regulars who popped by and said hello, and to all the new customers who came my way, it was so lovely to meet and chat with you all. 
There were many familiar faces, including these two lovely lady shoppers who I met at the Summer Fair earlier this year.  They work at the wonderful Whiting Post Boutique in Kent, selling beautiful brands such as Noa Noa, Sandwich and Darling, they always stand out from the crowd in their gorgeous clothes, I just had to snap a picture of them... thanks Ladies!
Lots of new faces too, including this lovely little lady, modelling a beautiful tutu from her Mothers company Angels Face... how scrumptious she looks!
Lots of products on my Stand were popular this year, but in particular my Teacup Pin Cushions went down a storm, they make such wonderful Christmas gifts!
Another big seller were the little burlap gift bags above... they are just the right size to slip Gift Vouchers in or money, and they are a little gift in themselves.
My stand display was slightly different this year, in addition to a table and wooden crates I also had this pretty little dresser that I had picked up in the Summer at Ardingly Antiques Fair, it looked fab crammed with lots of my creations and really dressed up my stand.
There were some fabulous stall holders this year with amazing items on offer, in Part 2 I'll give you a little tour of some of the other stands... they are worth the wait I can assure you!!
