The Crafties at The Birmingham Handmade Market

 Feel like a stranger on here it’s been that long since I have managed to do a blog.  Personal issues and just lack of time (can you believe its October on Friday?)Is what I am blaming for my lack of input, but back on it now.

As you can see in the snaps, half of The Crafty Muthas had a fabulous (but chilly) day on Sunday at The Birmingham Handmade Markets on Edgbaston Street..  The other 3 Muthas otherwise engaged much to their disappointment, so it was left to myself, Ceri and Jennie to man the front line, and fun was had by all…along with lashings of hot chocolate and plenty of banter.  The market is amazing, so many lovely things to buy and see, especially from our beautiful stall and very proud of it we were too.  Jen’s owls were a huge hit again, people love them owl’s man, and Ceri sold some of her lovely fabric baskets and corsages.  My rings were my best seller of the day, and didn’t our stall look pretty?

Now we have the Handmade Market done, we have to concentrate on our very own Handmade Christmas in Bearwood fair on 20th November.  This is very exciting for me and all of the other Muthas as we have had so much interest from people wanting to know if they can have their own stall and people just generally wanting to get there to buy our products, it is such a compliment.  My husband on the other hand is not so excited as he now has to help me peel 10 kilos of Shallots for me to start my pickling fest..yum.

The Christmas Fair is being held at St Mary’s Church in Bearwood starting at 9.30am and finishing around 2.00pm, there will be many gorgeous and lovingly made Christmas gifts and eats on sale.  I really hope you can pop in.  Any comments or feedback would be greatly appreciated,

Thanks Nat. x
