Festive Fairs!

After a delightful day of shopping (and selling!) at the Christmas at the Orangery fair in Clifton yesterday, we have spent most of today catching up with orders and writing lists of what to make for next weekend and our next festive fair! 

Next weekend (3rd & 4th December) we will be at The Makery Christmas Market in Bath. We are so excited to set our little 'shop' up again, this is honestly our favourite time of year. 
Seeing the results of all our hard work culminate in a stall full of goodies is so rewarding, and I would set up our stall every day if I could!

So if you are out in Bath next weekend, or nearby and fancy popping in to see the wonderful array of handmade delights at The Makery Emporium, sat nav BA1 5AR and come and find us at 16 Northumberland Place in Bath... hopefully I can restrain my excitement until Saturday! x

The French Market

The French Market returns to Tetbury a couple of times every year, and each time we head on over to get our fill of delicious cheese, a wide range of saucissons, meat and other French delights.

This time was no exception, the smells of Camembert and Reblochon wafted over us, the air was filled with the scent of traditional crêpes being cooked and the general hubbub of shoppers getting into full market swing was delightful to see. We only wish they would return more than twice a year, but perhaps that's just a little greedy! x

Country Living Christmas Fair 2011

Yesterday was a day of recuperation and unpacking after the Country Living Christmas Fair which finished on Sunday. We had a fantastic week and met so many wonderful people over the 5 days, and now can't really believe that we're home again, what a whirlwind! 

So here are a few snaps of our stand, that we shared with the fabulous Julia Davey (Julia Davey Ceramics), who helped the week to fly by - thanks Jules :) 
We are now catching up on orders after a week away, so have plenty to get our teeth stuck into, hope you all have a lovely week, and if you didn't make it to London we will be selling lovely Christmas wares (both our own textiles and Julia's ceramic goodies) at our next festive event, Christmas at the Orangery in Clifton, Bristol on the 26th November, hope to see you there! x

The Country Living Christmas Fair

On Tuesday we are off to set up for the Country Living Christmas Fair, I am equally very excited and very nervous! We have been featured in the preview leaflet that went out a few weeks ago and also in an email that was sent this week from Susy Smith (editor of Country Living) to all subscribers and mailing list, which was so wonderful! With most of our preparations done and only the packing of our suitcases to go, I think we are just about ready! 

If you haven't quite got around to buying your tickets for the fair you can call the Ticket Hotline on 0844 848 0152 or head to and enter the code CLXMAS9 to get a discount on your tickets. We are looking forward to seeing lots of lovely people there and to begin the festive season in true Country Living style! x
