Now to start with we have got to apologise that this has taken so long to do, we have been so busy with Christmas fairs and lots of Christmas orders. But, we thought we would tell you all about last weekend, which was jam-packed with 5 Christmas fairs! Why do we do it to ourselves I hear you say...well we couldn't do it without the help of family. Izzi's family kindly stepped in and helped us so we could do all the fairs over the weekend.
The weekend kicked off with Deepdale Christmas market, where I was for 3 days, from Friday- Sunday. Deepdale is a fantastic local market that has over 100 stalls, most of which are local designers and producers from Norfolk. It was so busy throughout the weekend and it was fantastic to see so many familiar faces and met lots of new customers too.
On Saturday Izzi and her Mum, Sally, went off to Glebe House School in Hunstanton for their Christmas Fair. They had a great day and managed to get some Christmas shopping done too...always a bonus!
Olivia, Izzi's sister, spent the afternoon at Gresham's Prep School for their small Christmas market. A big thank you to Olivia for stepping in such short notice and braving the cold weather too!
And while all this was going on...Izzi's Dad, Graham, was kindly setting up our stand at our village's, Hindovleston, Christmas fair. This picture above was the village hall that the fair was in. It was so beautifully decorated, it looked like it could have come straight out of Country Living magazine. Graham wouldn't let us get a snap of him behind the stand...but it did look fantastic!
Izzi and I then went to Gresham's Senior School on Monday evening. It was such a lovely event, it felt so festive with all their decorations in the beautiful school chapel and the choir singing carols. It was great seeing lots of our old teachers and of course seeing all the other stall holders and customers too.
What a fantastic few days we had. We really want to say a HUGE thank you to everyone that helped us, we couldn't have done it without you and all of you support. Thank you to everyone that came and bought from us that weekend, it makes it all so worth while. Also, a massive well done to Izzi who managed to organise everyone enough stock for each fair...she was spot on!
Sorry that we haven't taken any pictures of all of the other fantastic stands that were at all these fairs like we normally do. We were just SO busy that we didn't find the time. We have one final fair left this week on Wednesday at Taverham Hall School. They are holding a Christmas shopping evening, so please come and see us there for some last minute gifts.
