Robin Hood's Bay Craft Fair - May

Today I've been mostly doing a craft fair! There's a really lovely one in Robin Hood's Bay, North Yorkshire on the 2nd sunday of every month (contact me if you would like info).

I loaded up Doris the Citroen and set off via the Whitby car boot sale where I purchased a rather fabulous clothes horse for displaying my quilts.

Got to the hall in plenty of time and started to set up

A few familiar faces were there!

This is Stewart - he makes some splendid stained glass.

I also met up with Deborah from , who also plays in the Scarborough Symphony Orchestra, as I do!

There were some new faces too - like the lady who was spinning wool that had come from her alpacas- I know she's not there at the moment I took this photo - but we all need a cuppa every now and then!

Beautiful soft alpaca wool - wish I could knit!
I love these toadstools carved from old logs! My aunty has one in her garden which I bought at a pre-christmas fair.

Here's some of Stewart's stained glass
I had my eye on these lovely pendants on the stall next to me.
By mid-afternoon the fair was in full swing and I was hoping that Pauline would come round with some of the tasty looking cakes I'd seen in the cafe - sure enough we were rewarded with generous slices of homemade chocolate cake and a mug of steaming tea thanks to Jane!
Plenty for the little ones!

After a really enjoyable day, I called the chauffer to take me home

If you'd like more info on the Robin Hood's Bay craft fairs, please email me and I'll do my best to help, or pass your details onto the organisers.
