I’ve been making some festive HooterNinnies (similar to hedgehogs!) and robin decorations ready to come to my last fair of the pre-Christmas season next weekend along with a posse of cute and crazy sock creatures.

 Hair and Makeup by Beautycall – offering Vintage hair and make up: £15 for both or £10 each

Craft Fair – Sun 18th Nov – St Bartholomew’s School, Newbury, Berkshire

This week I’m busily sewing up a box full of sock monsters and monkeys to replace the ones that were sold at last weekend’s craft fair. This little lot will be coming with me on Sunday 18th November to the next fair at St Bartholomew’s School, Newbury.

My OddSox stall will be placed next to award winning Mrs Chutney – I bought three pots of delicious items from her stall a couple of weeks ago and can thoroughly recommend her produce – top fave is the Chillililli – fresh, crunchy, fragrant and with a good spicy kick. And the best thing is, she has little taster bowls out so you can sample before buying!

I hope you can come along – we’ll look forward to seeing you 🙂 Here are the venue details…
