It’s always nice to support budding entrepreneurs…you’re not only investing in the local economy but you’re helping someone’s dream become a reality.
Those of you who follow my blog should know how much I love shopping online. It’s easy, it’s convenient, and you don’t have to disturb the dog/cat who’s curled up on your lap! But I also love a craft fair, especially one that welcomes the whole family. At the end of May, Quiddity Gifts will join 18 other talented creatives as part of a bank holiday family fun day in Cheshire.
Here’s a chance to get to know the entrepreneurs who will be taking part in this year’s fair:
Quiddity Gifts run by yours truly and my mini dachshund Maya (logo inspiration, lap warmer, and postman greeter) from Crewe, Cheshire.
I started making paperclay jewellery in motivational leaf and cloud designs, but over the years have expanded to meet the needs of my customers. Morse Code necklaces are now the most popular item with secret messages ranging from names to dates to downright rude messages! I love custom orders and my favourite piece to make is always a custom design for a bride’s big day! Check out the new collection of beach inspired turquoise jewellery that will be available at the craft fair:
Bella’s Boutique , named after owner Michelle’s Yorkshire Terrier, is your one stop shop to find the perfect gift for your four-legged yappy companion: from collars to pet beds, squeaky toys to fancy dress!
She also stocks the best-selling sports harness, which is a comfortable and stylish alternative to a dog collar. Already got one of those? Wondering what to get for the dog who’s got everything? How about some doggy perfume! You’ve got to pop by the fun day to check that out, or take a peek at the website.
All Good Things run by the lovely Anna and Lynn, the brains behind this wonderful community event, will be there with bows on….literally as their shop is a treasure-trove of ribbons and bows, wool and material, buttons and …well, you get the idea!
And if you don’t know your darning needle from your rug hook, treat yourself to a readymade item. My favourite are the adorable owl cushions, but who could say no to a cuddly teddy or cute hedgehog?! If it’s a baby shower gift you’re looking for, they have a lovely selection of knitted baby booties. Older children would love a reading pillow to store their favourite night-time story book. Come and see all the goodies at the craft fair:
