Have a Crafty Christmas Shopping Experience Just Like This One!...

At this time of year there are some spectacular events to find all manner of handcrafted goodness.  These events don't happen by accident of course and behind the scenes the organisers spend months of planning, co-ordinating and generally running around like blue-bottomed flies!  Sellers too of course, have spent time applying to attend, frantically making stock, and planning fab displays.

One of our favourite annual Hawkes Bay based events - Fruit Bowl Craft Jam, organised by Jess and Jo of Coco and Co - took place this past weekend, and we thought we'd share some pics!

It starts like this....
