Contemporary Craft Shopping Experience, Warwickshire

Here's a little bit of a run down on the weekends event and a few stalls that caught my eye at the Contemporary Craft Shopping Event in Warwickshire. Although it was a long journey my husband and I decided to make a weekend break of it and fit in some Christmas shopping and it definitely turned out to be worth it.

Charlotte Hupfield Ceramics (winner of the best stall)
Creative Bumble Bee

Curious Cat Creative (handmade leather gifts)

Elizabeth Richards


Handmade by Moi

I always seem to get the short straw and end up opposite the tastiest stalls!
Harkers Handmade fudge

And little old me!
You might noticed that I left my lovely new banner at home :-(
I had a really good spot right in the middle of the hall (about 100 stalls!). I took an extra couple of plinths not knowing if I would have room to display my large bowls and luckly enough I could. Although I didn't sell either of them, I am certain they drew extra people to the stall. The 'Experiments' box at the front was a big hit (Thanks Taz for the idea!). Huge thank you to Claire Vize for being so helpful, to the lovely stewards helping to unload/load, and to the great caterers. (Thumbs up from hubby for the lovely fry-up to start the day!) It was a very well organised event and will hopefully be on my list of events for next year.


  1. Hi Nicola,
    Thanks for featuring a snippet of my stall on your blog. It was lovely to meet you and such a great day! I agree about the fry-up being a good start of the day, those sausages were huge!!
    See you next year :)

  2. Stall looks great very well organised.
