This is a brilliant and fun fair, with some fantastic handmade crafts, many in a vintage theme, as well as vintage clothing, cakes, jewellery, paintings and signs. There is also a tearoom on site run by all the Tea and China, serving tea in vintage china an cucumber sandwiches and delicious cakes.

A fun day and a very popular event! Pop in and say hello if you are there!

Tis the Season

Where has the year gone? Here we are - November and my busy period!

I have several craft events this season including the Westcliff on Sea Women's Institute Christmas Craft Evening held at the Cliffs Pavilion on the 11th of November! This group WOSWI - are the greatest bunch of ladies ever! Ranging in ages from 18 to 70 plus, every meeting is full of fun, laughter and friendship! I am looking forward to the evening!

Followng this event which is a group event and not a public event, I will be showing at several venues in the Southend on Sea area.

The season is Christmas and therefore a lot of my wares will be in that theme, and will include signs, shelf sitter block sets, ornaments, cards, and wreathes, and there will also be wares to purchase as gifts in different themes including cakes, vintage chic, and shabby chic roses.

The list of events is below - if you are in the area pop in and say hello! There will be many stalls selling a huge variety of special hand crafted items made with love!

Hopefully I will see you there!
