10 highlights from the Country Living Spring Fair



I love going to the Country Living Fairs to find unique, non-high street gifts for my friends and family and beautiful decorations for my own home. Last night I went to the gala evening of the Spring Fair in London and rather than writing an extensive post about it I thought I'd show you pictures of my 10 favourites stands.


> Swoon Lounge was the very first stall I stopped at and at the end of the night it was still one of my favourites at the fair; a beautiful collection of unique, vintage and bespoke homeware gifts.
 

> The second stall that caught my eye was Shabby Sheep Crafts. My phone image does not do it justice, but the felt creatures created by this mum are simply stunning.


> The beautiful colours of the ceramics by Material Pleasures are perfect for Spring and Easter (and the rest of the year!). And how cute are the mice?


> I love figurines (especially cats and woodland animals) and I spent quite some time rummaging around the extensive collection at Rummage and Rootle.


> This beautiful cheese from The Haciendas Company is something very special; a unique flavour that is highly addictive.


> I love soap and I love books so these soap books from Heyland & Whittle are right up my street. They don't only smell amazing, but they're puntastic too. I mean, Grime and Punishment? Genius.


> Every single time I find a Jane Means stall at a fair I have to stop by to stock up on ribbons, gift tags and other wrapping supplies. They're unique and perfect to turn every present into something special and eye-catching. Jane also hosts great gift wrapping workshops at events!


> Candle Le Fleur was a super cute, girly stall and they did a brilliant job on the Easter theme.


> Having a dry skin I am always keen to try new body products to help me battle the dryness and when I tried the rich, manuka honey-infused Restore Me Honey Nut Body Butter by Apicare I was sold.


> I collect mugs and how beautiful are these Katie Alice ones? I am in love and definitely need a set to brighten up my kitchen *hint hint*

Honorary mentions: Heck sausages, I always pick up a pack of their sausages when I see them at a fair and this time around they had a new one I'm looking forward to trying: Chicken Italia; Truckle Cheese, I had to buy a jar of their onion marmalade, which is unrivaled; Green & Blacks chocolate have new 'thin' bars, the salted caramel flavour is particularly scrumptious; and Alula's Garden, a beautiful collection of crafty gifts.

The Country Living Spring Fair is on at the Business Design Centre in Islington (London) until Sunday 22 March 2015, though I linked the individual shops too so you can visit them even after the fair has finished.
