Stoke Craft & Flea Fair
The diary is already getting full with craft fairs to visit and support this Spring.
We've found some really interesting venues too and we're combining visiting the fairs with a good walk around the local area to try and burn off the tea and cake!!
Last week we headed to the Craft & Flea Fair at the Kings Hall in Stoke. There was such a good mix of crafters!
As soon as I walked in I was drawn to the pastel candles and holders from Florescence perfect for Spring! The smells from the gorgeous vegan handmade soaps from Wild Venus were amazing too!
We're working on Valentines peg board displays at the moment and so I couldn't resist two bunches of dried flowers from Sara at Arranging Flowers absolutely stunning and I'll definitely be using them around the house too!
After filling up on the best banoffee slice ever!! ..from 4eyespatisserie and a good couple of hours chatting, browsing and shopping we headed out for a walk along the canal. We were so chuffed to find two of the iconic bottle kilns along the way! Apparently there are 47 of these kilns across Stoke!
The walk was a really interesting mix of wildlife, industrial buildings and inner city life. We found the coolest graffiti along the canal walls.
