Middlesbrough Craft Fair

Well on a very snowy Sunday I took part in the Designer Marketplace Christmas fair. It was touch and go as to wheather anyone was going to make it or venture out in the snow!! However people did come which was great. It took place in Middlesbrough town hall which is a fab building with lots of character. There was a brill atmosphere with Christmas tunes playing, and a little glass of mulled wine was of course needed to keep warm!! Below are a selection of pics of me setting up plus some winter photos of Middlesbrough!!



Well a day trip to London it was, to take a look round this years Origin. It has now moved and took over the inside of Spitalfields Market. It was quite bizarre walking into the market and being confronted by a 10ft high pink/purple box in which the exhibitors where showing.
We went for a little lunch first with plenty of little snack bars to choose from we opted for a little chinese. The it was time to join the que........30mins later we finally got in! There was some lovely works on show and lots of unusual things it was hard to resist!! These are just a few designers that I really liked just click on the link to see their sites Angela Fung Jewellery, Lisa Swerling and Clare Willard.

Crakehall- Sale

This was a little bit of fun for a few of us Bedale business ladies, we got together and sold off some of our wares, at rock bottom prices just to make room for new things!! The little crakehall village hall was a lovely setting and we had a good stream of mums and friends etc coming for a look round and to pick up some goodies. We each also donated a selection of homemade cakes(from the pick I'm sure you'll agree.....yummy) and had tea and coffee available, all proceeds from this went to charity. It was good fun!!
