The Christmas Gift Fair: Part 1

This week­end we were selling our art prints at The Christ­mas Gift Fair in Kib­worth, Leicester­shire (#TheXmas­Gift­Fair if you want to fol­low on Twitter).

The qual­ity of the stall hold­ers was really high, so much so that we ended up buy­ing rather more than inten­ded, including…

All our Christ­mas cards (& quite a few birth­day cards) from

Becky Carr who runs Owa­Boo is tre­mend­ous. She’s a print designer who’s worked for most of the major high street retail­ers includ­ing Con­ran, George Dav­ies, Next, & Gap.

Amaz­ing scen­ted candles from

beefayre pro­duce hand-poured nat­ural plant wax candles with beeswax & essen­tial oils. Run by Sharon Jer­vis (she also designs the gor­geous pack­aging) beefayre donate 3% of their profits to bee con­ser­va­tion & research. There’s no nasty chem­ic­als & the best bit is that you can dip your fin­ger into the warm wax & rub into your skin as mas­sage oil. Neat eh?

beefayre also pro­duce body but­ters & creams, soaps & bath milk in vari­ous dif­fer­ent scents includ­ing orange & jas­mine; rose petal; & the one we bought; lav­ender, ylang ylang, orange blos­som, & geranium. beefayre have a Christ­mas offer of 10% off your first online order placed before 14th Decem­ber 2012. Simply quote busy­bee at the checkout.

and jams from Hedgerow Products. We bought a jar of hawthorn berry jelly & a jar of bul­lace jam. All homemade from fruit picked from hedgerows (as the name implies).

Makes you proud to be British.

We’re at The Christ­mas Gift Fair next Sat­urday, 8th Decem­ber at the Three Swans Hotel in Mar­ket Harborough.
