Kingsclere Craft Fair

Apologies for the lack in blogging. I have been busy preparing for and going to my first proper craft fair! Jacqueline Austen of JAustenJewelleryDesign organised a fair in her village. There were a few folksy sellers there and it was fab to put names to faces. Very busy for such a small fair so thanks muchy Jacqueline for all your hard work advertising it!

I shared my stall with my bestest friend Jen. We decided to call ourselves JenGem Accessories. Here's our stall (we had 2 table pushed together).



We both had a few sales. Jen sold one of her dinosaur bags; the pink monster purse and a kiddies apron. I sold a couple of hairclips; a resin pendant; and Natalie (NOfkantsCurios) bought my beaded flower pendant. We both bought a few bits too! I bought a piece of malachite from Natalie that I am planning using in my gem cutting experiments and a gorgeous felted monster charm from Jesselu.

Such a fun day out! Hope the one we're doing in Croydon on 4th Dec goes as well.

Edited to add: Jacqueline has done a huge blog post about the fair too. Go see here!

Yay! It was a fun but tiring day! You got my little girl in the picture too, crafting away beside her Mummy!

So kind of you to spend some time with her explaining about resin and beading, she really appreciated it, you are now Auntie Gemma!

Thanks Claire. The earring boxes were really easy to make. They are canvas frames from the pound shop (with the canvas taken off) with that plastic stitching canvas staple gunned to the back. They are hinged with a strip of fabric

It was lovely meeting you all. You were both lovely 'neighbours' at the fair. Your photos are great. I think I had too much coffee before taking mine! Hope to do it again next year.
