Zoom in at the village show

after months of talking and planning, my crafting for charity group finally set up our craft stall at a local village show to see if we could raise money with what we make as well as sending needed items to charities


the weather was lovely and there were lots and lots of families there to enjoy the entertainment and stalls.

Young girls with pocket money burning holes in their purses made up over half of our customers, attracted by the hair decorations and my little animals.  Dog owners were another good group buying the handmade dog biscuits and toys.

We took  £200 and learnt a lot about doing a craft stall - only 2 of us had been involved in craft shows before - and are talking about trying a Christmas market next.

Anticipating a fine array of  zoom in zoom out this week, as always and thank you to everyone who joins in
