Christmas Fair!

Phew, what a weekend! Despite snow and freezing conditions (ice on the inside of the van windscreen and doors completely frozen solid) we all made it to the annual Vintage and Handmade Christmas Fair in Chipping Sodbury on Sunday to put on an amazing display of gorgeous goodies for the public to savour and buy. As always it was a delight to catch up with fellow bloggers and regular customers, my only disappointment was not having enough time to chat properly, as selling was full-on right from the word go. Only when the children's choir started singing carols in the afternoon did I manage to grab a few moments to take some pictures.

Here are just a small selection of the stall displays......

Louise Taylor-Bowen (and Mum)

There was just so much to see I went a bit do-lally because I simply couldn't take in all the visual beauty and inventiveness and creativity of the makers there.

Gertie from 'Treutmade'

And lastly my own stand

I confess I was so shattered after getting home yesterday that I stayed in bed until 1 O'clock this afternoon! Shocking!


  1. Beautiful so very beautiful...I know how busy you must have been, and everything looks just gorgeous, what a fabulous enchanted day a wave and kiss to you all..( and all the hard work that goes to make it that way xxx)
    Love Lynn xxxxx

  2. I think you were amazing to drive all that way in this weather. I would love to have gone but its a long way from Sussex too. Glad you had a wonderful time and your stall looked beautiful in your pictures. Keep warm. Karen X

  3. So glad you got home safely.. we did worry about you after seeing you drive off in your frozen wagon. It was lovely to see you Christine and thank you so much for your excellent display at the fair. Hope to see you in April..

  4. It was lovely to see you Christine. Hopefully we'll catch up again in April but if not, then I look forward to another visit to Portscatho (at a date to be confirmed!).

    And I don't think one o'clock was too late - I was much the same!

  5. Hi Christine,
    THANK YOU for including me in your line up of stalls. Your photos are so clear, colourful, and beautiful, too...
    It was a lovely fair, wasn't it?...just like fairyland some how...with a little magic in the air...and I was enchanted by the same stalls as you, I think...

    Hope you received my email OK and you don't think I'm completely awful! ;-))

    Keep warm Christine,
