Stamford Dog Show - 13th September 2009

I have agreed to have a craft stall at the Stamford Dog Show being held on the Stamford Meadows on Sunday, 13th September 2009.

The Stamford Dog Show is organised by Trinity Methodist Church, Barn Hill, Stamford Lincs. This is the 5th Annual Dog Show and Children's Pet show. It has always been a family Fun Day out and is very popular with animal lovers, young and old.

And our Friends Tony and Sandra from Pets Korner Stamford are the Main Sponsor for the Dog & Pet Show.

I will display my jewellery there (of course!) but we will also display a range of rough rocks and tumble stones. These are becoming increasingly popular as decorations and also for people who are into crystal healing. And of course my dear friend Amanda of Greensleaves Florist will be sharing the stand with me with her range of Fresh flower Bunches, Bouquets, Flower arrangements and Silk Flower displays. Amanda also makes greeting cards for all occasions.

From previous experience at craft fairs and family fun days I have learned one very important lesson, I must have jewellery on display which would fit a child's Pocket money budget. Children often get a little pocket money on days like this to spend on treats, rides etc. and some of them like to occasionally buy a little gift for mum or dad. How Sweet! There will be bracelets, necklaces and rings for little girls and also simple jewellery kids could get as a present for mum. All made from Shell, Pearl and Gemstone beads of course. And little boys have a fascination for rough rocks so there will be something for them too!

If you are in the area do come and join the fun. Have a look at the Stamford Dog Show Website for more details.
