Our First Craft Fair!

On Saturday 12th June we had our very first craft fair. Magdalena's church was having it's first fete to raise money for the toddler group. We were told we could come along and take up some space. Elaine offered to look after the table as she has taken part in a fair few craft fairs. Here she is setting up the table.

Although Dawn's mum (Moira) was celebrating her 70th birthday she came along for a couple of hours to lend a hand.Both Dawn and Donna brought along a fair number of magazines and books. Elaine had also made some bookmarks which fit right in.

Magdalena made these gorgeous bootees in three different sizes.

As well as some flower boraches, Margaret brought some baby sets she had knitted up.

It's easy to see that Elaine has done these before as she came along with a lot of goodies to sell. Baby bonnets, baby toys, juggling sets, tissue box covers, hot water bottles, decorated gift boxes and mobile phone covers.

It wasn't all work though as you can see with Margaret joining in at the kids table.
We of course got some chatting in.

Elaine then put all our names down to have our faces painted.

Showing off their better sides.

Poor Monika arrived too late for the sale due to ill health but she did bring along these gorgeous bunnies. Both stitched by hand.

We had a lot of fun and were made very welcome. Hopefully we will be able to do it again. Elaine has signed up to take part in a craft fair in November. She has said she is happy to take things people have made with her. This one is in Shawlands.
