OK, so hands up if you’re still Christmas shopping. Be honest now. Yes, I thought so, me too!
I don’t have masses of people to buy for – so for me, it’s even more important to get my family and friends something I know they will treasure, something personal and maybe even totally unique. What this means of course, is that high street shopping is out, and the hunt for that perfect gift is ON!
If you’re facing the same dilemma and you’re in the York area this Sunday, I’m going to play at being your Christmas Angel and let you know about FLARE, my very favourite craft fair in York, which holds it’s final market of 2010 on 28 November.
Whether you’re on the look out for a small stocking filler or are planning on pushing the boat out, if you Y homemade, you’re pretty much guaranteed to find something special.
There’s a glorious selection to choose from, including ceramics, brooches and buttons, prints, photography and textiles – all handmade of course. Frankly, the FLARE poster below only gives the merest hint of all the gorgeous treats you can pick up….
…….and since you’re asking, I’d be the opposite of disappointed to find one of these fabulous crochet scarfs by Donna Taylor under the tree on Christmas morning………
