I went to the Ropewalk first, it's an arts centre nearby. I like to see the hand made crafts, there was some lovely handbags, but oh so expensive. I think if they dropped the price a bit they might sell some, a few scraps of fabric and some buttons for £40 seems a lot.
I saw a couple of friends at the craft fair, they had a stand each, one sells cards and the other cushions. I used to see them several times a year when I sold at the fairs, but I closed my business, it just wasn't worth doing any more. I felt a bit guilty looking around the stands and not buying anything, because I know what it's like to chat to people and hope they will open their purse. I saw some very unusual handbags made from men's ties, a clever idea, I know a charity shop that sells ties for 50p so I might try that.
Outside there is a country park, too cold to walk very far today so I think I'll come back in the spring, maybe when they have the next craft fair at Easter. This is the centre and the ducks, there are birds everywhere.
