Cabo de Gata Feria de Artesania

Fabulous location right on the beach - what a great little craft market it was today (shame about the weather and us having to pack up earlier than expected)

my stall is looking a bit empty with out the fans

Activities for the kids and my little monster loved it

Had a good beachcomb before the rain and picked up some more goodies to work with

Wholesale Wish Strings

I am busy with wish string orders with the run up to christmas - these are great stocking fillers and have excellent resale potential. I can do them any color with any charm you want - also an idea for schools to give to the pupils? fundraising events, corporate business gifts....options are endless

I can make 1 or I can make 1001!

Below is a recent batch of stars on gray cords (as requested by customer) - all packaged individually in their cello wraps and I am just about to box them up and take them to the post office

Lucky Sixpence For Men

I have been selling the bridal sixpences for years and I am not sure why I never thought of offering the same deal for men. Great to have his and hers lucky sixpences or even for civil partnerships. Anyway I thought about it today and here they are - 4 colors now available in my shop

Something old, something new
something borrowed, something blue
And a sixpence for HIS shoe!
