Belton House Christmas Market review

30 Nov

OK, I know it was a couple of weeks ago now, but better late than never!

Even though I was nervous beforehand about it being outside (and cold!), I really enjoyed the weekend, and met some lovely people (public and other sellers), and there was a festive spirit in the air.

YUM! What I found Handmade at Belton Xmas Market - cakes by Kate Elizabeth's Cupcakes

On the stall next to me were the friendly duo of Kate and Kate – one bakes yummy cupcakes using local organic flour, and one is a designer/dressmaker making textile goodies including pretty aprons, belts and corsages.  Take a look at their websites at KateElizabeth’sCupcakes and ThePartyFrock.

The organisers and volunteers did a great job, especially the plentiful cups of tea were very welcome!  With just a bit of rain on the Sunday, I think we were really lucky with the elements too – especially looking out of the window now at the snow!

I also did some shopping myself over the weekend, finding some great handmade gifts for Christmas – more of that to come next month…
