Handmade Monday and Leigh Retro and Craft Fair

Yippeee ... it's half term!! Pickle-Lily and I have lots planned this week!

 Last Saturday we went to Leigh Retro and Craft Fair (it's near Sherborne, Dorset) and what a fantastic day we had!  The fair was really well organised with a brilliant mix of stalls, and busy from the beginning to the end. We spent lots and met loads of great people...
From Home Grown Originals
 P bought an owl as a birthday present for one of her best friends, from Home Grown Originals . I also bought a lovely cheerful red seersucker tablecloth, just right for Christmas.

P had to buy some hearts!

I also had lovely, long lingering looks at Make and Mend

I want wee Jock, he is lovely... I might finally make the Sasha Kagan Scottie beret because he has inspired me!

Aw. don't they look nice welcoming stalls with such a different array of goodies. Love your little felt makes, very appealing.

Great pictures - the hearts look so pretty. Sounds like a really love fair to visit. Hope you have a good half-term.

Wee Jock looks scrummy and I'm not surprised those hearts were a hit I'd have wanted them too. Glad you had fun x

Wow, lots of cool stuff here today, thank you for sharing. Love the owl! I also have had a thing for hearts lately. :) And the make and mend interested me as I was dragging out all of the kids old stuffed animals this weekend and washing them and trying to salvage what I could for the upcoming Grandchild. I was thinking of replacing the stuffing (not sure if stuffing from 30ish years ago is all that clean, even with a washing). But the little creatures carry such memories! Thank you for sharing!

Looks like a good fair. And when did you last see a sooty glove puppet. The scotty dog stuff is soooooo cute

Lots of different goodies on each stall. Hope they all did well. You certainly came home with your hands full!.

It's great when you go somewhere and you are not disappointed, it looks like you all had a great time, I have to agree with everyone else.... the wee jock motif is great.
