I'm almost ready . . . I'm going to work through my checklist . . . and when everything is ticked, I'll pack it very carefully and load it all in my my car/van/tardis all ready for a very early start tomorrow morning.

As well as myself the line-up is: 

Bobo Bun – Lisa the colourful crochet queen and organiser of this superb event
Daisy Boo's Kitchen – with her delicious savouries and cakes in tea-shop corner 
Baby Loves Vintage – unique retro tee-shirts for little ones 
Emma Mitchell Jewellery – handmade silver and beady treasures from Mrs Silver Pebble
Faded Splendour – vintage clothes and accessories made by Tracy from vintage notions
Gabriella Buckingham – with handpainted designs from MooBaaCluck
Glory Days – Norwich based tea plate and doily heaven
High Fibre Design – chunky yarn... and I mean really chunky!
James & Joanna – purveyors of vintage textiles
Laura Lindores – colourful fused glass
Mamphii Button – jewellery made from vintage buttons
Miss Poochie – Norf the Dog and his doggie friends!
Planet Penny – in her colourful needlefelted world
Ripping Yarns – Retro Fairisle and Scandinavian inspired knits
Sasha Allan – and her quirky creatures, handmade from colourful fabrics
Gosh! I can't wait to see what's on all those stalls, they sound very exciting – all the makers are East Anglian based small businesses.

It looks like the weather is set fair, so what could be nicer than a day out in North Norfolk? I can't think of anything better!

Hope to see you there :-)



  1. good luck, swift sales, much smiling!

  2. It's going to be wonderful! I hope you have a splendid time and that you sell all your stock.

  3. Oh how I wish I could hop over to Holt. I know your work is superb, and have had a peek at some of the others' who you've listed...they are all so fine!

    I'm going to recommend this to a friend who lives not too far away from Holt.

    Best wishes, Celia. xo

  4. I really wish I could be there. Hope it all goes well.

  5. Good luck! Meanwhile, I shall be in Withersfield ;-)

  6. Good Luck, I'm sure it'll be a wonderful event!

  7. don't you wish that sometimes you could split yourself in 2 and then be in 2 places at once.......Have a great day :-)

  8. Hope you are having an excellent day, sounds like a lovely market.

  9. I wish I could come... this sounds so exciting - I still need lots of Christmas presents and such fairs are perfect for finding something special.

    Well, I hope that you will have lots of customers and enjoy your busy day. I'd like to see some photos!

  10. I do so hope the craft fair went well for you. I have just been directed to your blog by a dear American friend, pleased that I did, I just love craft.

    Unfortunately I missed the craft fair today, would have loved to have gone too as I live in Reepham only about 25 minutes by car from Holt.

    Would be lovely to see some photo's Celia of the craft fair. I have a dear friend who lives in Hunworth near Holt who is potty about craft, would be lovely to know if there will be another fair perhaps just before Christmas, if so I will definately log it in my diary.!

  11. Looks wonderful! just a bit too far to travel. Maybe next Spring ;-)

  12. How lovely, I am sure you will do well ins uch good company.

  13. Hi from Texas.
    I just found your blog via Hen Cam and I just read your co-starring page. Believe it or not, my wife and I also have a hen named...Phoebe! What a small world.
    The other hens are Hoot, Zeebee, and Gwendolyn. We have a cockerel named Marco, but he has to leave if he starts crowing. You have a beautiful and very creative blog.
    Best Wishes,
    David/ Tropical Texana/ Houston :-)
