The East Stratton Christmas Craft Fair!

I had a really good time at the East Stratton Christmas Craft fair yesterday! It was great to be able to show off and sell my work and also to see what other people are making and selling! Luckily my stall was inside the heated hall as it was such a chilly day!
I am really pleased with the response to my work I had from people and for the chance to meet lots of other crafters!
I hope to start doing more fairs as I really enjoyed the day! I took lots of photos of my stall and I will be replenishing my Etsy shop with lots of pieces this week!
