The Handmade Fair

The Handmade Fair

This year was my first time visiting The Handmade Fair, and I'm pretty sure it won't be the last because I loved it!

Held over the middle weekend of September on the green opposite the grounds of Hampton Court Palace, The Handmade Fair is the brainchild of Kirstie Allsopp, and is a chance to meet and buy from small craft companies and independent designers and makers, as well as to learn from the experts and try out new crafts.

My First Craft Fair

My First Craft Fair

I did my first craft fair last weekend. It's the biggest step I've taken with my business so far, and a scary one, but also so rewarding. I'd been invited to take part in the second Support Local Pop Up in Tunbridge Wells, and we had the most beautiful venue - the Function Room at One Warwick Park Hotel, a gorgeous high-ceilinged wooden-beamed space with big windows and lots of light.
