Here’s my boat shop all lit up for the Christmas market in Bradford in Avon on 2nd and 3rd of December. We had a good weekend, thank you to everyone that came. There were lots of lovely goodies being sold from 12 boats and stalls. Of the pieces I sold, one was a delicate rose quartz teardrop and garnet necklace with a matching bracelet. Hopefully to a very happy recipient!
That was my last trading for the winter. Easter is at the end of March when I will open again. I’ll keep you posted where I’m going to be, probably somewhere near Reading.
Meanwhile I will be updating my website with some new pieces. Don’t forget you can also keep up with our boating life and new pieces on Facebook.
Well with only 2 weeks to go, I think I’ve made enough new pieces to give you all lots of choice. I’ve been using most of my spare time in the last 2 months, designing and making.
We were moored on the outskirts of Bath for the last 2 weeks, which was lovely. Siteseeing and trying to avoid the temptation of all the fabulous shops!
Hope to see lots of you the weekend of 2nd and 3rd December in Bradford on Avon. We will be decorating the boat and lighting it up at night.
2nd and 3rd DECEMBER 2017
BRADFORD on AVON
This is a big event. Lots of fun and handmade gifts to buy.
There will be many boat traders set up on their boats or stalls in the Tithe Barn, carol singers and a buskers corner.
Do come and join us. We’re slowly making our way along the Kennet and Avon.
We treated ourselves to a trip to the Budapest Christmas Market at the beginning of December. The variety of stalls was amazing.
Considering the history during the war there is a lot of beautiful architecture still left to see, a lovely city indeed.
The display all lit for evening trading!
Friday 2nd December Ware
I will be trading from 6-10pm down on the canal. Do pay us a visit and share a cup of mulled wine to warm you.
This elegant pair of Garnet triple drop earings are available for £32 inc postage. For more information visit; Earrings. Ref 349Gnt.
Meanwhile we have had a beautiful autumn with all the colours and bright days. It’s lovely coming back to a warm fire inside.
I shall next be open on Friday December 2nd in Ware near the road bridge for their Dickensian evening. 6 to 10pm. The boat and display will be lit up to join the festivities.
This is a Jasper necklace which I’ve made especially for a winter exhibition in Parndon Mill Gallery.
I still keep busy in the winter making stock and trading from the boat if the weather is good. However you can also find my jewellery at the following places:
1st November to 23rd December…Parndon Mill Gallery, Harlow CM20 2HP. ‘Present Arts’ Christmas exhibition.
Sunday 6th November….Puckeridge WI Christmas Fair 11-3pm at the community centre.
Friday 2nd December….Ware (we’ll be down on the canal) for the Dickensian evening.
Other galleries that have my jewellery all year round…
The Design Gallery, Westerham, Surrey.
Jam Gallery, Arundel, West Sussex.
AD Designs, Kettering, Northants.
I’m pleased we have managed to get a winter mooring at Dobbs Weir, Herts. That gives us a base so we don’t have to move every 2 weeks.
This also means we will be trading during the winter, weather permitting, between Ware and Cheshunt on the river Lee. I also hope to set up a stall in some Christmas events.
