6th Annual Country Christmas Gift Fair

This coming Saturday 26th Nov I am having a table at the Country Christmas Gift Fair. 
If you are going to be in Palmerston North on Saturday it's well worth visiting. The last two years I went along to shop there were hundreds of people popping in and out.

It is held in the gardens of Caroline's Creative Interiors between 10am and 4pm. 
Poppies Bookshop will be there with their lovely selection of books and Hester Guy will set up a cafe and have a selection of yummy things to eat and drink. She will also hold two demonstrations of Creative Christmas ideas at 11.30am and 2.00pm.

What makes this market special is that this homestead used to belong to my great grandmother. My grandmother grew up here. There used to be a tennis court where the fountain is now. 
The grounds are beautiful and the old home is beautifully cared for. 

I will be down in this sheltered oval with the cafe and the tables and chairs. 

I've got a wee gazebo to put up over my table, but am keeping my fingers crossed it's not showery and blowy. I haven't had a table out of doors before.

There are lots of lovely nooks in the large developed garden. 
It must be amazing to live here.

There is going to be a lovely selection of Christmas gifts.

What gorgeous grounds! And amazing back story (too bad the property didn't stay in your family!) Hard to imagine a "green" CHRISTMAS fair, OUTDOORS (says she from brown, chilly Missouri)). Hope you sell well!
