This little piggy went to market….(again)

Artisan Markets, Decorating

BAM Undercover Christmas Gift Fairs Advert

This weekend we are off to the Bath Artisan Market (22nd November) for the Christmas Gift Fair.  It is a really lovely fair set in a very grand old Victorian railway station in one of the most beautiful cities in the world, and too often I end up doing a LOT of gift shopping there so I must behave this weekend.  It is a covered area, so weather is not an issue and there is a very nice Brasseries for lunch as well as lots of local hot food stalls selling delicious morsels.  There are beautiful handmade items for sale ranging from yummy foods to Art to Clothing to unique items that I cannot even catagorise, but all are made with love and skill.

We will be selling our paper wreaths which come into their own at this time of year, paper cut art, gifts and cards.  And if I say so myself, my wreaths look pretty spectacular in a house in this beautiful city!  There is live music too , and it is the first time that I have started to feel very ‘Christmassy’ this year…

Selling at Artisan Markets

Artisan Markets, Craft


I have been really busy recently redecorating the house, and have not been running stalls at Artisan or Craft Markets for over a year.  The last one I did was great, and I totally sold out and also took extra orders for my paper wreaths… but WOW was I knackered at the end!  Christmas is a time when people want the paper wreaths, so I need to prepare them early so I have enough, I definitely learned that last time.  However, the advance orders are also good as people can choose their colours to match their Xmas decorations.
