And the sun sets on my third Ballymaloe Craft Fair. It was great to be back in the wonderful surroundings of Ballymaloe House, Co. Cork. I love this fair – if I didn’t have a stand here I would make sure to visit anyway. I got to be reacquainted with past customers and met lots of new ones, made friends, got to explain my work and describe how I hand make my jewellery.
The Allen family create a lovely Christmassy atmosphere to discover talented designer makers, delicious food trucks, a string quartet, kids’ activities, antique stands, and it’s dog friendly!
I hope to be back again next year. Keep the last weekend of November 2024 free – it’ll be worth it!
