Aw Im so proud...Kirtsy Allsopps team contacted me to see if I could take part in there handmade fair..
Kirstie Allsopp's The Handmade Fair
Hi Sharon, I hope you’re well?
I am writing from the team behind Kirstie Allsopp’s The Handmade Fair
as we are really impressed by your products and feel you would be the
perfect exhibitor for our Shopping Village.
The Handmade Fair will take place on The Green of Hampton Court
Palace on the 16th – 18th September 2016. This three day event is
designed to get people making, shopping and learning and we work hard to
create an exciting and influential line up each year.
The Shopping Village comprises of two large marquees full of the
most beautiful suppliers, designers and makers selling handmade
products, kits and materials. I think yours is the perfect brand to have
at the show with our visitors in mind.
Our fair differs from other shows as we encourage our visitors to
try their hand at something new, in fact all but one of our ticket types
include an element of making or learning, whether this is via a talk in
The Super Theatre, or a Skills Workshop. Kirstie has invited a whole
host of experts in previous years such as Cath Kidston, Emma
Bridgewater, Dawn O’Porter and Fiona Cairns to impart their knowledge on
our keen audience.

I have been oiling my oak worktops with vegetable oil, olive oil, chilli oil lol/
I read online that mineral oil is whats used on chopping boards, tables..food prep surfaces.
The other oils dried up quite quickly leaving a really dull oak surface...
so we will see....
I thought I would take a wee picture or 3 of my kitchen unit all tidy and oiled :)
