Although it has stopped raining at the moment, I am sure I am not the only one who feels that summer has ended and that we are already well into autumn. With the children back at school, here at Flutterby we are preparing for the busy programme of charity and other fairs that we will be going to over the next few months.
The charity fairs are a fantastic way that the charities help to raise money. Stallholders pay for their stands and then usually give at least 10% of their takings to the charity. We love supporting these events… besides, it takes a huge amount of hard work by all the committees involved to organise these events and they do a great job.
Our first charity fair is the Whittlebury Charity fair (www.whittleburycharityfair.co.uk) on Wednesday 23rd and Thursday 24th September. We’ve never been to this one before so are very excited. We shall be bringing a wide selection of new stock! Loads of new necklaces and so many new bracelets that we can’t decide which to take … so we’ll just have to bring everything! Look out for some new photos in the next few weeks as we’ll put up some of our new designs.
