The Yvestown Winter Fair – a few days after

It was bitterly cold but oh so cosy. With fairy lights and A Very Ally Christmas and Michael Bublé blasting out of the speakers. It was a quiet fair but the company was wonderful. And although we were all freezing cold we kept each other warm. Wrapped in blankets, snuggling up with hot chocolate.

I really love the invention of the hastag as it’s such an organised way to see what’s been going on. If you click on #yvestownwinterfair you’ll get to enjoy all the photos made by the stall holders, visitors and me.

Eline’s Doll house was present, beautifully equipped with lights and Christmas decorations. Eline was so lucky to be able to make this doll house assigned by her publishers.

Also Erika’s doll shop made it’s début.

Rosa’s beautiful dolls where having a wonderful time.

And the Dotjes were having such a wonderful time selling their dresses and using the dining room as their fitting room.

It was a good day and it was definitely the last fair in this format as it takes too much from Bo and myself. It’s hard work, not just on the day but the day before and the day after. I’m still cleaning, doing laundry and defrosting. I’ll think of something new to do, I might even take it abroad – I’m not sure yet.

Please consider to shop small this Christmas, to promote small and independent shops and stay the hell out of Primark.

    It does look chilly, but I think I could cope with the cold if blankets and hot chocolate were to hand! Beautiful looking fair – congratulations!
