The Artisan's Christmas Fair

The Artisan's Christmas Fair a date for your diary................. Sunday 2nd December

This time we are in a different venue for our fair. As a result we will have more space and a more prominent position by the A36. Along with more space we will have more stalls with a greater choice of vintage and handmade pieces. There will be gifts to suit all pockets which, unlike items on the high street, will be unique.

The Artisan Friends gathering together include:
Beulah's Vintage Attic, with  kitchenalia, vintage inspired clothing, painted items and accessories. See web-site for details http://www.beulahsvintageattic.co.uk/.

Camelia with vintage linens, handmade lovelies, vintage objects, haberdashery & small decorative items. She now has a space in The Vintage Quarter, Wilton (within the Shopping Village complex).
Caroline with her handmade jewellery, using semi-precious stones & more recent quirky pieces. Caroline started beading 3 years. ago, when her Grandchildren were staying with her  and she needed to do something with them. Since then she has become interested in
semi-precious beads, and the ideas are humming in! She makes a great variety of jewellery to suit all types, and whilst making variations on a theme, will not repeat herself. Colour and texture are very important to her.
She will be selling at stall at the Godolphin Christmas Fair, Salisbury on 10th November
10th ( 10 a.m. -4 p.m).

Jo & Margot with their lovely cards, gift tags and vintage items.

John Gustard with his lovely collection of art http://www.johngustard.com/ He will be doing quick portraits in Conté Crayon... perfect for Christmas. We are hoping he will be able to run some more workshops with The Artisans in the future.

Kiss the Book, Jane the English Booklady, with her lovely books, kitchenalia and decorative objects. Her blog has recently won an award.http://thelifeofaneccentricenglishbooklady.blogspot.co.uk
Sky Blue- Anne-Marie with her own design, Sky Blue, hand knitted and handmade items, incorporating vintage fabrics, as well as a selection of other vintage pieces.

Tanya Wadey with handmade rabbits, hair slides & broches. She will be joined by Imogen and her Limited Edition Lino-cut prints, produced entirely by hand (pictures & cards).

John & Sue's delicious vintage inspired cakes & teas are available all day and they will introduce their preserves and homemade produce. (Buttercup Cottage Farm, as seen on Facebook).

& many more stalls including a £1 stall.............something for all

If you are out for lunch with family or friends, in need of inspiration or just curious, you will be made most welcome.

You may wish to combine a day out with friends or family and be in need of a little inspiration for Christmas.
The Artisan's Christmas Fair at South Newton and Great Wishford Village Hall, Salisbury, Wiltshire, SP2 0PJ, just off the A36 with plenty of parking.

Together we look forward to welcoming you.

With many thanks to Anne from 'Camelia'- I've snaffled all this from her- so she, wonderful woman, has done all the work! Only the photographs are mine.

    1. Wouldn't be fun, Diane, if you just walked into a fair one day? We would have so much to talk about! Jane xx

  3. I wish I could come, too, Jane! I guess I will have to make do with the local fairs and I might also buy a few bits in Italy (though I can't bring too much back, because of luggage weight restrictions) as we are going on the 21st and I can't wait!

    Your fair sounds really lovely, though, Jane!



    1. Hello Anna, I'm so glad you will be back in your beloved Italy on the 21st- have the most wonderful time, Jane xx

  4. Hello Jane:
    Alas we are separated from this wonderful fair by over a thousand miles, but it does all sound as if it will be very good indeed. So many intriguing stalls and a wealth of fabulous hand made goodies, who could resist. Good luck and good sales at the Artisan Fair!!!

  5. Hello Jane and Lance, we are lucky to have such an interesting collection of people doing the fair-I do hope it will be a happy day for all. Jane xx
