The Best Exhibitors at the Country Living Magazine Spring Fair
The Country Living Magazine Fair is one of those rights of passage into Spring. The show is lovely – there are lambs to stroke and beautiful chickens to coo over, the food is very good and it is all decorated beautifully. This year there are even more talks, events, workshops and classes which is a great addition to the day. For me, the best thing is discovering new exhibitors. Country Living put together the perfect mix of skilled craftspeople, talented designer-makers and passionate artisan producers. Mum and I have been regular visitors over the years with and without various children hanging off me. With all the boys in full time school now we went just the two of us and there was definitely an element of ‘ladies that lunch’ to our day!
I have listed my favourite exhibitors from this year and links to their sites.
Note - I have not been approached or am an affiliate for any of these companies - I just wanted to share my lovely finds.
Gabrielle Parker Clothing is a small and friendly business based in East Sussex.
Gabrielle has a lifelong love of colour, floral prints and fine natural fabrics combined with an appreciation of all things vintage, quirky and quintessentially British, which she expresses in her designs...
I wanted to dive into this stall and all its beautiful fabrics.
The focus here was block craft the company had an extensive collection of beautiful hand carved Indian printing blocks. They were demonstrating how you can print your own fabric and paper using these fabulous blocks. The designs were wonderful and filled me with ideas for wrapping paper, bags and cards.
Munchy Seeds are a small family run business dedicated to producing great tasting products using high quality ingredients and flavours. Delicious, all-natural wholesome seed snacks available in sweet, savoury and choccy flavours. All seeds are gluten free and suitable for vegetarians.
