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.

Another successful Easter Sunday Craft Market here at Cove Garden Nursery is over and the dry  Bank Holiday Weekend has ended in typical fashion with a day of rain!  We’d like to thank the stall holders for making it a most pleasant day out for our customers and we look forward to doing it again next year bigger and better!

Easter Sunday Craft Fair

By Helen, 04/04/2012 6:59 pm

It’s the Easter Sunday Arts and Craft Market at Cove Garden Nursery this Easter Weekend and although we won’t be enjoying a heatwave like recent days we won’t actually be knee deep in snow like some parts of the country!  Forecast is fair but cooler and it won’t stop us from putting up our gazebos for our annual Easter Sunday Craft Market!  We have a good selection of quality crafts such as: ceramics, jewellery, textiles, wood workers, photography, cupcakes, glass and a blacksmith complete with mobile forge to name a few!  Its a great day out for all the family in the beautiful Exe valley and you can even get a cream tea or cake on the lawn!

We are currently having the hottest and driest April and Easter ever!  Which is great news for us especially this Easter Sunday when we host the Cove Arts and Crafts Market.  We have jewellers, potters, wood turners amongst others and should be a brilliant day to meet with crafters and maybe buy an original piece of work!  We will also be selling cream teas from our now green Tea Tent or maybe a nice ice cream from Langage Farm!    We will be open normal Sunday trading of 10 till 4 so come and meet the crafters!

Easter Weekend!

By Helen, 01/04/2010 3:25 pm

Well we have been preparing for this Easter Weekend by putting up a tea tent on the lawn.   We have ordered in scones and cakes, Westons clotted cream and a beautiful sunny weekend.  Unfortunately we will probably only be able to deliver on some  of those orders as the forcast is set to be wet and windy!  I am sure that there will be some blue skys between the showers but a Devon Cream Tea can be savoured whatever the weather and there is room in the tent to shelter!  We will be open 10 till 4 Easter Sunday.

Ever wondered what happened to all those missing socks that you knew were a pair when they went in the washing machine but one always vanishes?   Well these little fellows appeared on our doorstep yesterday looking for a home!  These little ‘Sock Buddies’ have been rescued courtesy of ‘eckel and noo’ who are Torbay based crafters.  Each have there own little personalities and you can come along and adopt one of them from us and give them a loving home.
Please look after me!
