Creative Craft & Art Show

We recently spent five days at the N E C for the Creative Craft and Art show.

It was a very busy five days, the first being spent setting the stand up followed by four days of hectic trade. Our stand featured many art and craft products and our regular feature of twelve items for £10.00.

We displayed hundreds of Christmas card making and decoration products proved to be hugely popular.

As you can see from the photographs a bare space became full of exciting products with a Caran d’ache demonstrator attracting hundreds of eager enthusiasts admiring their products.

The whole show had a feeling of normality with good attendance, although not as many traders or members of the public as in previous years.

When the Crafters and Artists arrive

We are regular exhibitors at shows and exhibitions like this one. We greatly enjoy meeting old friends, and making new ones, at the shows.

If you can’t make it to these show/exhibitions and the shop in Leicester isn’t in easy reach please feel free to give us a call. We are happy to take phone orders and send items out by post/delivery. Call 0116 251 7792 during shop opening hours to talk to one of the team.
