Back in the summer it seemed like such a good idea to take part in the annual St. Nicholas fair at Crowland Abbey. Our intention was to raise huge amounts of money for our local community playgroup by making our own things to sell. Considering the committee members met on the Monday before the fair, I don’t think we did too badly.
In the end we managed to come up with folding (Danish) paper stars, teacup candles (inspired by MadMummy at The MadHouse), dough decorations, jam-jar tealight holders and create your own greeting cards. We also had a huge fishbowl of brussel sprouts for the ‘guess the number of brussels’ competition. Like marmite it was a love or hate thing for the visitors, but 9 out of 10 times people stopped to have a go.
Our teacup candles were the best seller of the day. It was a really enjoyable day, I got to spend it with friends and got to see what it was like on the other side of the table for a change! Needless to say we had the prettiest table.
