Bungay Christmas Street Market 2012

A couple of weeks ago, we braved the sub-zero temperatures to exhibit at the Bungay Christmas Street Market and goodness are we glad we did!  Despite wondering why we were putting ourselves through such Arctic conditions (mostly at 6.45am while putting up a marquee in the dark with so many layers on we could hardly move!) we had a fantastic day and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!

We were fortified by flasks of soup and hot chocolate from the Bungay deli, who had thoughtfully set up a stall directly opposite us!  It was wonderful to meet and chat with so many lovely Christmas shoppers who had turned out in spite of the chill to enjoy the festive atmosphere of the market.

It was also great to see Angelina Lou Designs’ beautiful stall, which was buzzing with customers as usual, and have a visit from Anna of Bullrush Art who was browsing rather than having a stall herself for once.

A couple of days later, when we had almost thawed out, we enjoyed the experience of being on the other side of the stalls when we visited Earsham Hall’s evening Christmas Food and Craft Fair.  It was a lovely cosy event, held in their courtyard with warm food, hot chocolate and mulled wine and cider on offer.  We caught up with Heidi and Beth of Cute Little Cupcakes and treated ourselves to some of their festive offerings: Baileys and chocolate, cinnamon and mince pie, and mint chocolate – yum!

For those last minute Christmas shoppers, we still have lots of lovely lavender-scented textiles gifts in our Etsy shop:

And for those difficult-to-buy-for fellows, we are offering a new range of gifts for men in our upcycled emporium.  There are mounted comic book prints, bottle openers and unique cufflinks – something for even the fussiest man in your life!

 We are still busy cutting and stitching, folding and upcycling to finish all our orders in good time for the last post, which is next Thursday 20th December – so if there is anything you would like please contact us soon at Louise@farrellandholmes.com!

Wishing you all a magical Christmas and a fabulous New Year,

LouLou & Will x
