Photos from Ely Cathedral Fair

Well locations for a Christmas Food & Craft Fair can't get more spectacular than Ely Cathedral.  We spend a magical three days there, setting up on Thursday 13th November, with a preview that evening.  A full day on Friday, with a break for evensong from 4:30 - 6:30pm.  This gave us a chance to go out for dinner with some fellow stall holders.  The show continued on Saturday with huge numbers of visitors.

My best sellers were the new 'Cat in the Meadow coasters' and new Boats tea towels.  The Penguin cards also went down really well and I am busy making more Red Birdy decorations in time for Cambridge Christmas on Monday 24th November.

Our neighbouring stall was Slate & Nature run by the charming Jeanette and Gerard who'd come all the way from Northumberland for the show.  They sold wonderful reclaimed slate bird feeders, candle holders, garden ornaments and such like.  We swapped a few tea towels for a couple of bird feeders which are really beautifully designed.

Another favourite purchase was from the Ely Gin Company - a lovely selection of little bottles of flavoured gin.  Had to buy it for the packaging alone.
