It was lovely to see so many old friends, both behind the stands and as visitors and customers and thanks to those who popped along to say 'hello' or purchased items from us. This is our favourite fair and as it's literally just up the road we're so lucky in only having a five minute travel....many, many standholders and visitors come a significant distance.
As a standholder the opportunity to browse and buy is seriously limited (the big downside) but I did come home with 'Busy Bee' from the wonderful Shoebutton Bears stand. I love him!! I've also ordered the beautiful, diminutive Alice in Wonderland from Sandra - Tower House Dolls, and look forward to her arrival in due course.
It was sad to be saying goodbye to Tony Knot and Vic Pain (Simply silver) as they attended their last fairs.
I believe they've supported the fair and the Breast Cancer Campaign Charity from the beginning and we shall all miss them.

Anthony Church our Town Crier, once again did sterling work, pounding his beat in town to advertise the fair on a bitterly cold day, then announced the winners of the raffle etc. It was great to see him in his green finery, because as you'll see if you look on the side bar it's how I portrayed him in miniature a year or two ago.
If you noticed something on the Blog during the fair previews and wonder if it was sold, or is still available, do email and I'll let you know.
Thank you for looking.
