Crafty Castle Cary

So, it was craft fair time just before Christmas. Kilver Court in Shepton Mallet didn’t run one this year, so I was hoping to do the 2 fairs nearest Christmas at Frome’s Cheese and Grain. Unfortunately the lady running it, after about 5 weeks of me asking her, finally told me there wasn’t space. So a few weeks ago I did a stall at Caryford Hall in Castle Cary. Having seen the type of shops in Castle Cary High Street (lovely little shops that I love, but quite expensive) I decided to risk the £25 pitch fee. I’m glad I did – I did very well and was my most successful craft fair yet. From a buyer’s point of view I’d recommend it too – there was a really nice variety of crafts and lots of choice for Christmas gifts. To be honest, several of the stalls were selling higher priced items, so were out of a lot of visitors’ budget, and they didn’t do so well. Perhaps the local rich people were busy shopping in the High Street! However, the fact that the hall is a bit out of town, meant that people had made an effort to go there, and were therefore ready to spend their money if they saw things they liked.

Handmade business,

Adulting: A series of things I should’ve learned by now – Keeping receipts
October 13, 2016
I always have the best intentions of keeping receipts. In fact, I gasp in horror when people throw away a receipt before they’ve even tried on the item of clothing; or plugged in the toaster – let alone keeping them for a year at least! Like everything in my house, I struggle to throw anything anyway in case it comes in useful one day. Keeping the receipts isn’t the problem – it’s keeping them in an orderly manner that is. As you can see from the photo, I currently stuff all receipts in the same cupboard that I keep the ketchup and honey. Why I do this? That’s anyone’s guess….
3 Days in Oxford – Day 2. The story of the photographs
October 12, 2016
If you haven’t yet seen Day 1, then you might like to follow this link and come back here later. The morning of my second day in Oxford was mainly spent walking from the Four Pillars Hotel in Sandford-on-Thames along the Thames path into Oxford. I’ve already written a detailed blog with photos about the journey in this post, so I’ll begin here where I left off, entering the city by Christchurch College. I sort-of meandered my way through cobbled streets and past various ancient University buildings until I came out at a place I remembered….
Reaching a YouTube goal
A quick Vlogmas update + 1000 thank yous!
December 5, 2018
If you haven’t heard of Vlogmas, or aren’t entirely sure what it is, it’s when a bunch of entirely mad youtubers decide that in the busiest time of the year they will vlog every single day of their life from the first of December until Christmas Day and edit and upload the video the following day. There is of course the blogging equivalent: Blogmas, but as I’ve done Blogtober in the past, I’m not about to try that again! I was one of those mad youtubers last year and the year before, but in 2018 I thought I’d do something a bit different….
