Another Fair

Knaresborough Viaduct on a wet and windy day.

After saying I wouldn't be doing anymore craft fairs, I've booked myself to do another on Sunday the 3rd of December. It's only £10 for a stall, and I've got stock left over from the last one so I figured I may as well. Besides it's in a fantastic location, Henshaws Arts and Crafts Centre in Knaresborough. I used to work there before I became a Mum, teaching textiles to adults with visual impairments. It's a brilliant place, there are different studio's such as textiles, jewellery, paper making, pottery and woodwork. During the week these are open to the public so you can see the artists at work. There is also a huge sensory garden which the children love and a gallery with touchy-feely art and crafts. I'm hoping to get some little purses made for this one, thought they'd make good stocking fillas .

Here's my latest charity shop bargain, I got all of these for £1.50. I love wooden tree ornaments, they are so colourful. My daughter had a good look through them when she got home from school. Her favourite is the little white angel with gold wings at the bottom.

I love woodden Xmas decorations and I wish I could find the same treasures in the Aussie Op Shops, (In Aust, we call them Op, short for "Opportunity". You cannot buy such lovely decorations in the retail outlets.
