Dates: Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th November 2013
Event: Burton Constable Christmas Craft & Gift Fair
Location: Burton Constable Hall, Sproatley, nr Hull
Amount raised: £120.82

Maria and Louise attended the weekend event at the Burton Constable Hall, which was its 5th year, and there was a very wide selection of stalls selling chocolates to various handmade items. The Saturday started well and thanks to Christine from Shaun Foulds Tai Chi class we sold quite a few of her donated handmade shopper bags. We also sold quite a few Christmas bags, handmade cards and some donated toiletry items. Unfortunately we had to keep passing all the stalls to go to the little ladies room and it would be rude not to help out other stall holders so we did purchase a few things for ourselves!!!

The second day started well and we saw quite a few people first thing in the morning and then it picked up again around lunch time. Again we sold some cards but also managed to sell quite a few Christmas items. We met some very nice people running the other stalls and two of them donated items for us to sell, which was very kind of them. All in all it was a very enjoyable weekend and we managed to raise more funds for the charity.
