Christmas Fairs

I’ve been scratching my head a lot about fairs and evens this year. I attended Okehampton Show in August this year, but that’s about it. I really wanted to get into a Christmas event this year to dip my toes in the water and see if it works for me.

Every event I enquired about was full, not the right thing, already has jewellery of my “type” or just didn’t seem the right venue.

I must admit, I was starting to feel a bit down. Then a chance conversation led me to a couple of venues that might have space.

I’m very pleased to announce that I will be attending the Lupton House Christmas Fair on the 28th and 29th of November (

Also, I’m very excited about attending The Bovey Castle Christmas Fair on 6th December. They also do a fantastic afternoon tea there, but you will need to book. (

Both of these venues are incredibly picturesque and well worth a visit. My first view of Bovey Castle was a few years ago. I was driving up trough mist and then suddenly it appeared. It left quite an impression on me.
