Post Craft Fair High

 The craft fair on Saturday went very well.  I met a lot of lovely people, had some great feedback and sold a lot more than I'd thought.  So all in all, a very successful day after a lot of hard work.  I can't wait to do it again!
 Some of my journals remain unsold so I'm going to try to set up an internet shop sometime soon but in the meantime I'll sell direct from my Facebook page via Paypal.  (If you 'like' my page you'll get my facebook updates appearing on your home page).

 I had two great helpers on Saturday, friends who went above and beyond the call of duty so I decided to make them a couple of brooches to say thank you.

I discovered Bojangle Beads in Loughborough last week, a very friendly and totally inspiring bead shop that also do mail order.  One of my friends had asked me to make her a kilt pin brooch for Christmas, as she spotted on there, and well, I couldn't wait to make one! 


  1. I am so glad the craft show when well for you. It will probably get in your blood and you will be busy all season. My mother in law did craft shows for years; crafting was her second job. She made a lot of friends and had some very loyal customers, as will you if you stay with it and I think you should given the uniqueness and beauty of your items. Have you looked into, an online market? So glad that you did well.

  2. So sorry forgot to wish you well for the craft fair but so glad it went well for you. Great idea for the journals on Facebook. Popping over to have a look now. Those kilt pin brooches are very,very nice!!Great work as always, Shaz. Have a great weekend. x

  3. Congrats to your great success!
    Your brooches look gorgeous! Beautifully done.

    Have a lovely Sunday!
