The Handmade Fair

Yesterday I went to the Handmade Fair. Sarah Hamilton Prints very kindly made it possible for myself and my friend, Holly, to go to the fair for free. I wanted to go to the fair as it is hosted by Kirstie Allsopp and I basically love every programme she presents! When you enter the fair the first thing you see are numerous food stands selling fashionable food such as Churros. 

As you make your way around there are two large tents with little stands in, and then other smaller tents with activities and talks. I was expecting lots of handmade items, of which there are, but it was mostly a place to buy all the materials you needed to make handmade things. For example, lots of 'fat quarters' to make patchwork quilts, along with wool and craft tools. Check out the woman with her giant knitting needles below!

Victoria and Abigail are worth checking out.

Christmas products were already on display!

Anyone recognise this mirror? For reference it is by Connell and Todd.

I was so pleased to see an Etsy stand, as I am obsessed with their website.

Essie Button's dream! You can find all this washi tape at Chamby and Cor.

 Finally, the person who made it possible for me to go, Sarah Hamilton Prints!

If you want to go to the Fair, you best hurry as it closes today!


  1. Oh my word that looks like my kind of fun. A visit there would have been so dangerous for my wallet mind you! Love that birds in hat print and those Christmas/advent wall hangings - so pretty!

    1. It was fun and I had to take a set amount of cash otherwise it would have equally been dangerous for my wallet! I know, I was soooo tempted to get a birds in hat print but held back. Possibly one for the Christmas list! xx

  2. Great pictures! I loved going to the Handmade Fair but I got so distracted by all the beautiful crafts on display I realised too late that I hadn't taken snaps of half of it! if you'd like to see my experience check out xx

    1. Thank you! I love it when readers like the photos, it makes me happy as photography is my dream job! Looks like you had an amazing time! I wish I had gone to some of the interactive parts! Thank you for reading. xx

  3. This looks so cute. Love how many quirky unique buys there are x

    1. That was definitely the highlight for me, seeing products not normally found on the high street. xx
