Danbury Christmas Craft Fayre

Today I popped up to Danbury for their annual Christmas Craft Fayre. I haven't been for the past couple of years so thought it would be nice to see what crafts were on offer. It was a bit of a flying visit as I took Tomas and Rachel with me, and there was too much temptation for the small boy's fingers!

So would you like to see so of the lovely craft's on offer?

You'll have to excuse the photos as they were taken in a rush and on my phone - it was kind of a last minute decision to do a blog post!

The fayre is held at the Danbury Sports and Social Centre in their main sports hall with refreshments in the small hall upstairs.

The stall are nicely spaced out with lots of space to walk around

It did indeed feel very christmassy

I met some lovely stall holders and there were a few familiar faces too.

Look at the gorgeous hand knitted baby shoes by Pixie Dust Shoes

There were lots of different styles and designs and no pairs of shoes are ever the same.

for more information you can contact Cherryl on 07407615424 or

There were a few stalls selling wooden gifts but this stall belongs to my friend Laura and we bought some lovely gifts from her today, thanks Laura

Laura also makes greeting cards and you can found out more at

What was nice today was that there lots of different stalls which was nice as these events can be a little samey.

The magpie in me spied these shiny goodies by Charmed Again

Lisa also makes wonderful dollhouse miniatures so pop over to her Etsy shop and take a look.

Next to Lisa was her mum Sue of Denim Bears
I really enjoyed chatting to Sue as we talked about fabric addiction and crafting.
Sue not only make these wonderful bears she also quilts, crochets and makes bags (can you see some similarities here)

Sue doesn't have a website but she will be at Hylands House Christmas Shopping Fair on the 1st December but if you can't wait that long then you can contact her 01245 603614 or email

Tomas loved the idea of this special Santa key made by the talented Jane & Kerry from 

They also made these rather cute tree decorations 

Local Danbury company Blossom Hill Florist also had a stall and although they weren't selling any flowers they were showing of their gift range and had these lovely tea cup snow globes (I may just have to pop into the shop and grab a couple for myself)

as well as these Santa signs. (aren't they cute!)

Another local company is Stephen Holland who can revive your old photos and scan your slides and negatives. Stephen can be contacted on 01245 222523
It's amazing what he can do with old torn and marked photos.

Now if it's food you are after then look no further than Amos Bank Country Kitchen who were selling a variety of jams, pickles and chutneys. 
Richenda can be contacted on 07940069266

Now I know lots of you love old books, especially the Ladybird and Enid Blyton ones, well the lovely Erin from Sawyer & Scout makes these adorable notebooks amongst other things. Jewellery is her speciality so pop over and have a look at her website.

Now this isn't the best photo of this stall as by now Tomas wanted to go home so I took this quick shot, but Marilyn makes the most beautiful knitted and sewn gifts from baby slings to coat hangers
You can contact Marilyn on 01621741734 or

Tomas loved this stall as it was full of lots of lovely Christmas decorations and cards made by Liz.
Liz can be contacted on liz&

Finally don't these yarns look fun, they are hand spun and dyed by 
The Woolly Workshop UK who are based in Witham. 
Pop over to their website as the colours look a hundred times better than in my photo.
