Let them eat Cake at Handm@de Oxford

Saturday 9th November saw Let them eat Cake displaying our wares at the Handm@de Craft Fair in Oxford Town Hall. The town hall was a beautiful location, built in the reign of Queen Victoria, with a stunning ceiling and organ in the main hall adding a large slice of elegance to the proceedings.

The fair itself saw over 1300 people through the doors, and a lot of interest and lovely comments on our cake stands, with many of our leaflets given out on the day for our online shop.

What was truly amazing was the wealth and quality of handmade items presented by all the stall holders on the day - so much talent, so many beautiful items, that we had to be extremely careful in not blowing the bank as we picked up lots of lovely gifts. Meeting a lot of the other crafters on the day also led to some great discussions on other fairs, products and generally the love of everything handmade.

There are lots of fabulous pictures of the day collated on the Handm@de Flickr group and you can check out the individual crafters exhibiting on the links panel of the Handm@de blog. A big cakey thank you again to the organisers, especially Beccy (whose Moments by Martha shop is well worth checking out if you love beautiful jewelery)
