It's rather humbling to walk into a local craft fair to see hordes of people sharing your interest. The sellers with their beaming smiles as people take to their heartfelt creations, with the buyers in awe of their work. It's pretty gutsy to hire a stall and put yourself out there but we're glad you do it.


As you step in, the child within can barely be contained when the jewellery pieces sparkle in the light, the warm feeling of a hot chocolate hits your tummy, delicious smellies and candles that linger leaving you feeling hungry, the murmur of happy shoppers fills the room and then the taste of homemade cakes melting in your mouth- yum!


For anyone that hasn't been to a craft fair- you are seriously missing out! Those unique gifts mean so much more and who knows, when these clever crafty folk are big brand names, your original piece may be a good investment! 


We sponsored the Fairy Tale Fair back in May and what a delight it was! We saw everything handmade from carved wood wares, clothes, candles and of course LOTS of jewellery. The beauty is that it is all so original, imaginative and this time round, it's no different! 


We are honoured to sponsor this magical event once again on November 15th at the Brighton Open Market. It runs from 10:30 - 16:00 and has free entry. What's more there is a craft table, face painting, and entertainment including a very tall snow queen and dancers so fun for all the family. Below is a list of incredibly talented artists and crafters that will be attending the Fairy Tale Fair Christmas At The Open Market Fair;
