Today was the day of the long awaited 'Craft Candy Spring Fling Fair' . I didn't have a stall (maybe next time) but I did go along to help tie balloons and sit at the 'Welcome' desk. The fair was a huge success.
I left at lunchtime, halfway through the fair, and there had already been over 400 visitors. Everyone seemed to really enjoy themselves both the visitors and the stall holders. The quality of the stalls was just fantastic.

Elliot bought a stuffed robot brooch that was made by Lucia of Bettyjoys ( http://www.bettyjoy.co.uk/ ) and I bought a felt cat brooch and a rabbit card from Joey of Joeys Dream Garden ( http://www.joeysdreamgarden.etsy.com/ ) although I have to admit it was as much to get one of her screen printed paper bags that she had done by hand.
