Burnham Market Craft Fair 2013

We set off for Burnham Market bright and early on Saturday, hoping for a dry sunny day.  Despite a couple of light showers and a strong breeze, we were very lucky with the weather and had a wonderful day with lots of customers to keep us busy!

As usual, it was a bustling event with a great range of  local craftspeople and artisans, delicious local food and traditional Punch and Judy entertainment for the children.  It was the first outing for our new stall sign, beautifully made for us by Clairabelle’s Signs, and I think the doormice rather liked it!

We were really excited to be using our Baxter & Snow display cabinets for the first time too – they are actually craft tidies, upcycled from gorgeous old wine cases, but they work perfectly for housing our little lavender-scented mice!

Serving all those customers was hungry work, so it was extremely fortunate for us that Heidi, from Cute Little Cupcakes, came to visit us with a box of my absolute favourite almond and amaretto cupcakes – how thoughtful!

Throughout the day we were offering a Ladies’ Lucky Dip to raise money for the Teenage Cancer Trust and we are delighted to announce that we made nearly £200 for this wonderful organisation.  This total was greatly helped by a lovely lady who came along at the end of the day and donated an amazing £40 to support our fund-raising efforts – Mrs W, we just want to say “thank you so much”!

And of course a big “thank you” to all the lovely folk who came to visit us and everyone who helped us raise some greatly needed funds for the Teenage Cancer Trust!  Hope to see you all next time, LouLou & Will x
