Custom orders are also available on request! We usually spend Valentines enjoying a nice meal together at home. I make sure to always buy a hand illustrated card and love to get creative with present ideas for G. I will be sharing what I made him after the day – it’s pretty awesome.
Happy Valentines Day to you all *insert heart eyes emoji*.
I spent last Saturday at From Cambridge With Love, a handmade and vintage market in the Guildhall. Christmas shoppers were out in their thousands and Cambridge had a great festive buzz.
I thought I’d share some photos of the wonderful sellers and my stall styling for you.
My pitch was the first stall as you entered the venue. Although I was placed just outside of the main part of the fair (with one other stall holder), it was the perfect spot as it meant I had a constant flow of shoppers. Lots of my lovely friends and some Twitter followers came to see me. Plus a blog follower – hello and thank you for stopping by!
The floral hair slide sets sold out as stocking filler gifts.
I expanded my range of fabric covered button hair slides for my stall and may add the additional designs to my Etsy store soon!
I debuted some fabric brooches too, with the Russian Doll one going first!
Here’s me at work! I was lucky enough to have visits from G and my family so I was able to have quick loo breaks and do some speed shopping with G around the fair. We got some fab gifts for Christmas and of course gifts for ourselves too 😉
It was a great day and I was pleased to make a very healthy profit. Other opportunities have also come my way as a result of the fair, so watch this space!
I can’t sign off without mentioning these awesome sellers too…..
Harpers Bizzare who sell the most amazing scented soy candles, made with vegan ingredients. We snapped up the Bakewell Tart, Lemon Drizzle and Gingerbread candles (yeah yeah we like cake).
Daphne Rosa offer beautiful handmade fabric flowers. This was Kate’s first fair and her stall looked gorgeous.
I’ll be back on Friday with a peek inside the next issue of Crafty Magazine.
Initially, five word designs will be available, but I will also be accepting custom orders for 3 letter words or names. Brooches are £7.00 plus £1 for postage and packaging.
To my surprise, a TEA Brooch sold tonight! *Happy dance*
I want to thank all of you who took part in my giveaway and survey to determine which were the best phrases for the Scrabble brooch pins. It’s so valuable to have your feedback on what to create and I had a real giggle at some of your suggestions.
What do you think? And which phrase would you wear? I can’t decide on my favourite….
This week I was also lucky enough to get some great feedback from my customers including a lovely feature on the Duck In a Dress blog. Thanks Louisa!
