As I mentioned in my last post, Elsie May and Bertha was at the Vintage and Handmade Craft Fair at Woodside Ferry, Birkenhead last Sunday (17th Feb). It was a beautifully sunny day and where we had a table meant that we had a great view of the Liverpool skyline.
The fair, and the cafe bar we were based in Home, was really busy. Probably due to the happy coincidence of good weather, the start of half-term and the visit of HMS Illustrious to Liverpool.
We met lots of new crafters who were selling at the fair including:
Natalie Louise Smith who is an illustrator and artist.

Vintage Fairytale - this mother and daughter combo create beautiful cake stands (or use them as jewellery stands) and candles out of vintage cups, saucers and plates.

Loves a good yarn, owner Pam Harrow makes lots of lovely things out of crochet, including children's clothes, bridal accessories and afghans.

CD Clockworld, Alan Southern takes old CDs and DVDs and creates them into clocks. It's such a simple idea but terribly effective. A Bart Simpson clock anyone?

It was a good, but tiring day, that means I need to get back into the Elsie May and Bertha workroom to replace all that I sold! So it's sewing (sorry!) for me.
PS - Our next fair is at the Community Centre, Hoylake on 9th March.
The next one at Woodside Ferry is 21st April.
