Preparations For Easter Fair

By Paul, 12/04/2017 2:52 pm

We have begun all the moving about and re-organizing we need to do to make room for the Crafters and other stalls for this coming weekends Easter Fair. This year we have overflow hard standing for extra parking and the weather forecast looks good for the weekend (if You will be able to warm up with a nice hot beverage and a slice of pizza.  Sadly, due to illness, we won’t have the mobile forge working this year but we will have their Victorian Sock Knitting Machine working away making some seriously good quality socks! We try to post more about individual crafters over the next couple of days if we get time.

This coming Easter Sunday, after a year off last year due to the roadworks (now just a distant memory) we are preparing for the return of our ever popular Easter Fair.

With more local crafts people displaying their wares plus some additional refreshments including cakes, Pizza and other hot food plus teas and coffees.  Meadow Forge are booked to bring their mobile forge along as well as crafts ranging from pottery, woodcraft, felting, lavender products, jewellery, illustrations, textiles and more. This year to add to the atmosphere we have a vintage DJ spinning old 78rpm records on wind-up gramophones. So save the date in your diary, Sunday 16th April entry is FREE so come along and have some fun and support local crafts. All our usual plants, pots, composts and sundries will be available including our range of tub & basket plants. This year we will also be joined by the Culmstock Chilli Company who are passionate about growing Chilli plants so this year is sure to be Hot, Hot, Hot!

Devon Fairies and Gargoyles at Cove

Deep in thought!

Deep in thought!

Knock Knock!
Knock Knock!

Devon piskies and fairies, you don’t want to get on the wrong side of them so we now have ‘Fairy Doors’ from Nicky Chapman of  Goblin Dreams on sale.  Think of them like a cat flap but for fairies and easier to install!  Let the fairies in and you are sure to have good luck!

For those who want something a bit bigger for the garden we have a small selection of Devon made statues.  Big dogs, little cherubs and scary gargoyles, sure there is something for everyone.  I particularly like this big fella, he looks how we all feel sometimes!

 

Its currently raining but we have had a good run of fine weather which is bringing out the bulbs.  We are waiting for it all to explode into colour just in time for Easter.  We have lots planned for the long weekend, we will have a Tea Tent on the lawn serving simple Devon Cream Teas and our own savoury Cove version.  (Not a Hot Cross Bun in sight for those who have been eating them since New Year  when they went on sale in the shops!)  Wicked Willows will be here on Easter Saturday working on something wonderful (probably not an Easter bunnie!) and we will be open on Easter Sunday 10 till 4.   Will keep you updated!
