Lovely day at the craft fair last Saturday

Last Saturday was one of the nicer days in the last fortnight of grey clouds and roofers banging about (it's nearly finished as I type this!). The sun shone and the apple themed craft fair was in the pretty village of Warter which is quite unusual for round here in that it has some thatched cottages, see below.

I got to meet lovely Twitter friend Hilary who had organised this event for the village and I will put a link to Hilary's blog post as I didn't get many photos with manning my stall.

This is my stall being set up in the village hall.

Great that the weather was kind because we had outdoor stalls, traditional apple bobbing and apple and spoon race for the kids and a Morris dancing group.

I made some peanut butter tiffin for the produce stall, it turned out pretty tasty and if you fancy trying the recipe, I picked it up and the beautiful packaging idea from Lemony Loves Baking.

On the subject of baking, there was a cake competition for an apple themed cake and the variety of apple cakes that had been made was amazing and they all looked fabulous, I sampled a beautiful cake with glazed lemony apples on top. I should've got a photo before they all got chopped up and eaten but I was too late so I will put a link to Hilary's blog for this.

I did quite well with my stall, selling quite a few lavender items and brooches.

I also bought some lovely gherkins and got a bag of apples from Hilary's stall which have made into a tasty apple crumble tonight.

It really was a lovely, traditional village fair and nice to see people enjoying themselves in a bit of late summer sunshine.

So pleased you had a good day with your craft stall. The tiffin looks scrummy, and I love the presentation on your packaging.
