It was lovely to meet Jenny at last and with over 700 people through the doors of Sandwich Guildhall, all her amazing hard work really paid off.
I had a very early start, leaving home at 5am to catch the train from London in time, but was rewarded with a lovely day out, seeing the meerkats in their wooliness and meeting new sellers, including makers of mermaids and all sorts of loveliness, including knitters, embroidery, biscuit and chutney makers and these buttons...
And we were kept going with homemade cakes and cups of tea served through the Guildhall's panelled serving hatch. This building was fill of all sorts of nooks and crannies that I could have spent all day taking pictures of.
And it was lovely seeing familiar faces again from Handmade Craft Fairs, including the lovely Kali who shared some celebratory chips with me and the rest of the makey doers outside the Guildhall, and drove me all the way back to London - thanks, you're a star. She has been updating her shop with lots of lovely new jewels, so take a peek.
Sandwich looks a sweet and interesting place from the few glimpses I had, so hopefully I will pop back for a day trip.
