So following on from last week’s post (which I had actually written a few weeks earlier) it seems a great time to update you about the fair appearances I will be making over the coming months. I spoke about how I had applied for 20 fairs, been rejected from 8 and accepted to two. Since then I have looked at some more applications, and got a fair few more rejections. Happily though, I now have a chocca fair line up to take me through until Christmas.
28th- Sheffield Craft and Flea. Back once again with their last Sheffield market of the year I will be in the beautiful Sheffield Cathedral. I will be alongside talented makers and purveyors of vintage fashion and finds. I’ll be bringing lots of locally inspired prints along.
18th- Levenshulme Market. I’m taking a little break at the beginning of the month to celebrate mine and my other half’s birthday but will be making my debut at Levy Market. It’s their Pumpkin Party Night and I’ll be bringing plenty of spooky finds including my brand new enamel badge.
26th- I had such a brilliant time at the Manchester Print Fair in February! I am ecstatic to now be part of their Spooky Print Fair at the Hat Works in Stockport. You’ll probably find me spending all my takings at the other fab stalls. So come along and keep your eyes peeled if you want to catch me there!
9th- Design 44, Intu Derby. I am currently stocking in both the Design 44 store on Sadler Gate and their shiny new pop up in the Intu shopping centre too. I will be running a pop up in store thus November. I’ll mainly be promoting Christmas commissions. I only have a limited number of spots for this so if you are interested, act fast!
23-24th- Now this is a bit of a trick question as yes I am at the Whirlow hall Farm Christmas Fayre but no you won’t be able to pick up any This Is Sian Ellis goodies as I am too busy running the show! Come along to see a range of stall holders, enjoy mulled wine, Christmas Carols, meet Santa, the whole shebang. There’s even a snow wolf! And all for a very great charity too!
30th- 1st December- Kelham island Christmas Fair. My first time to the museum fair and my first time to the museum! This Victorian themed market will see me dust off my purple velvet high neck dress (you bet I’m going victorian goth!) and bring local and spooky products. It’s your last chance to peruse in person before the big day comes.
I’ll be accepting commissions throughout the period too, but only as many as I am confident I can finish and have posted out to you in time for Christmas. So if you are interested in a bespoke house portrait, bespoke venue portrait or haunted house portrait then get in touch ASAP to avoid disappointment.
