Country Living Christmas Fair 2016



Another week, another festive event! Last weekend I hopped on the tube for the Country Living Christmas Fair at the Business Design Centre in Islington. This is the seasonal fair I've been frequenting the most these last few years (previously covering it with my Woman's World hat on) and it's still one of my favourites. The exhibitors at the event really get that Country Living brand feel across, and so browsing the stalls feels like walking into the pages of the magazine. And this year the quality and diversity of the products on offer was even higher than before, with exhibitors ranging from very affordable to the much more luxurious end – and everything crafty, fun, tasty, quirky and unique in between. 


( The Walnut Tree, every year I get at least one gift for my dad here )
 
( The Truckle Cheese Co has THE best onion marmalade around and I love these new cheese 'bombs' )


( Pig in the Middle is a new addition, I think, and they are incredible! A huge variety of different flavours on offer, very affordable and easily the best sausage roll I've ever tasted )


( I loved chatting to the guys from The Mood Designs whose beautiful works are in colour not only inspired by their Irish surroundings, but they even created their own unique blend for the glaze )
 
( Robert James Workshop creates the most stunning literary inspired sculptures and jewellery ♥ )


( I love acorns and woodland creatures so these stunning pieces by Phoebe Jewellery incorporating natural woods are right up my alley )


( Loving these wooden blocks from Arty Crafty Place! )


( As it says on the tin, The Recycled Candle Company uses old candles that would've gone into a landfill to create beautiful new creations. The winter spice was divine and so I had to pick up one of the trees )


( Green & Black's had a special tasting stall where not only lots of different bars could be sampled but they also made the most gorgeous salted caramel ganache from the bars, yum! )


( I love soaps that are unique in fragrance and design and these beauties by Stable House certainly are )


( Art and Soul has a beautiful array of china but when I spotted these Alice in Wonderland pieces I was especially sold )


( Don't these colourful pieces from The Happy Hen House look like Cath Kidston? I picked up a few tins and they're beautiful and were very affordable )


( I have loved Eve of St. Agnes ever since I reviewed their beautiful body cream a few years ago which wasn't only super moisturising and smelled great but the packaging was also one of the prettiest I'd ever seen, inspired by poet John Keats. I was thrilled to spot them at the fair with a whole new collection of products including candles that I must get for the family (and myself) )


( Katie Alice has some of the prettiest designs around and how gorgeous is this festive mug? *wants* )


( I included Pollyfields in my favourites of the Spirit of Christmas Fair last week but they needed another mention as they outdid themselves again with not only a very Chrismassy smelling stand but also with an amazing display ) 
 
 
What festive fairs or other Christmas events do you love going to in London?
