Sharing a craft fair table with a friend when you first start out is a great way to dip your toes into the water and is much less scary than doing it on your own! Neither of us sold masses but it was a lovely day with lots of chatter, meeting some new customers, making new contacts and eating biscuits :-)
Plus I got to have lots of cuddles with THE cutest baby ...
The eponymous Miss Willow
Tintern is a small village on the banks of the River Wye situated between Chepstow and Monmouth, famous for its fabulous Abbey ruins that have inspired artists and writers for centuries.

Good ol' village craft fair advertising (balloons are NOT optional!)

After setting up my table I went for a little stroll across the cricket field to admire Tintern Abbey before the tourists arrived.
When I got back all the other stalls were set up...
sweet crochet baby shoes
This table was full of toy dogs modelling the funkiest dog coats!
Colourful tissue flowers
There were several stalls selling antiques and collectibles - I nearly bought this entire vintage alarm clock display!
Pretty vintage hand painted ceramic door plate (this nearly came home with me too!)
A selection of beautifully restored chairs and stools
A lovely day in a lovely location with lovely company.
And although I didn't sell a huge amount of stock at least I have some lots of pretty new things to add to my Folksy shop next week!
