It’s Fair Time

Do any of you live near or in London?  Or perhaps you are wondering this Saturday what you and or the children might do?

If you have answered yes to any of these then I have the answer for you.

Come to the Fair!

Barnes Fair is on tomorrow, Saturday 11th July 2015,  9.30 – 5.30.

It is a fabulous event, not only hosting over 300 stalls, attracts around 25,000 visitors each year but has events for children, entertainment and much, much more.

The stalls have absolutely everything you could think of, lots of arts and crafts, accessories, food, homeware, jewellery, the list is endless.

I have been going every year as a customer and it is one of my highlights of the diary, but this year I am exhibiting, woohoo I am so excited.

I will be in the Old Sorting Office Arts Centre, 49 Station Rd, London SW13 0LF

If you do pop by, please make sure to come in the Old Sorting Office and say hello to me.  There is a cafe inside, so you can take some respite, have a cuppa and peruse the many artisan stalls away from the blazing sunshine as it is proposed to be a sunny, sunny day.

On a side note the Eclectic Odds n Sods shop will be closed for the day, as I will be taking a lot of my stock down to sell.

I invite you to take another peek at the shop just incase you want that essential item, many items being one off that I won’t be able to get again:

If any of you have had your eye on something and cannot get down there, waste no time and drop me a comment or email at before tomorrow (Sat), if you want me to set it aside, because it might have gone by Sunday!

I will be exhibiting there myself this year with products from my Artisan Online Store called Eclectic Odds n Sods, which you can find online here:  Eclectic Odds n Sods  (

I was very lucky to get a spot in the Old Sorting Office near the pond on Barnes Green, so I will be inside come rain or shine and none of my items will get blown away.
