Kat the hat came to KDF and brought a beautiful witch hat for me as a gift. My favourite colour for hats is black and so i really love this. It was really lovely to see Kat and her Husband Dan. They both stayed a few hours then went onto see the sights in london and Big Ben.
Thank you Kat!
Kate and Lola also came and brought a gift of the most delicious chocolate cakes from Thorntons. I shared these with the two New Zealand ladies i shared the table with. They loved them too! Thank you Kate and Lola, they were total yummy!
I managed to find time to do a tiny bit of shopping myself, although didn't really buy much. Wish i had managed to find more of what i was looking for in my quick shopping trips dotted throughout the three days.
Frst stop was the Village Wheelwright for some knives. Last time i went to kdf they didnt bring there little tray of metal items, and this time the knives i wanted had almost sold out so was lucky to get these.
Some lovely silks from the Dollshouse Draper. These are for Debie of Piskies and Poppets for making dolls cloths. I love these silks and find them easy to work with myself unlike their very fine silk everyone esle seemed to be buying. I loved this colour comination and will look forward to seeing what Debie does with them.
I also bought these buttons from the dolls house draper and will share them with Debie too. Thye are quite big but will look lovely on items like the hat tables i made recently. Mixed in with small and different buttons their size i think makes the display looks whimsical.
More buttons and scissors from http://www.meadowcroft-min.co.uk/. Will use these for two planned sewing tables. I'd like to find a nice sewing machine and have a witch clothes table. These are tiny and were only 25p per pack. Why didn't i buy more?
Some beautiful pots from Clive Brooker Ceramics. firstname.lastname@example.org. I love these and will use them for mandrakes. In a few days i will do a seperate post on the makers of these fine and beautiful mossy pots. Mark is clives son and makes the pots now. Mark and his mum were lovely and glad i met them.
Beautiful buckles and oval glasses from the Dollshouse Draper. I'd love to make some more witchy shoes with the buckles. Kat the hat sent me some beautiful buckles over a year ago which i stored somewhere safe.... have never found the safe place so pleased to have these. I love this stall at the fair.
Lovely barewood carrying basket and pestle and mortars from https://shop.greatnet.de/cgi-bin/shops/s000289/index.cgi. Will use these for potions. I thought the two little compartments would be lovely with potions bottles in.
I think the sellers are from Germany. The items were beautifully made and with good prices. They had some other lovely items but time just ran out.
