The Flying Duck's Big Vegan Fete & The Scottish Bead Fair

Last weekend appeared to be very busy for was. As is tradition, we held a stall at The Flying Duck's Big Vegan Fete on Saturday. Traditionally - because we didn't miss any of them since we were invited by organiser to hold a stall at a first one. This is a quite small event but is growing bigger and bigger. Despite the whole fete being more food orientated and my stuff not necessarily matching those preferences, I am happy to have an opportunity to spread the word about my products being made from animal-friendly supplies and take the opportunity to eat delicious food and treats served by Flying Duck, local bakers, chocolate and juice makers. So the day was not wasted.
Below you can see some photos, mainly food, but unfortunately we didn't take a photo of delicious cakes from Smashing Tarts.

Sunday started very early, even earlier than Saturday, and at 10.30am we were all set up and ready. Unfortunately, our event was kind of 'high-jacked' by a similar one taking place in the same venue but on the ground floor. So, yes, it was quite confusing for many people for sure and, because both events were paid at the entrance (£2 and £1.5), not many people bothered going upstairs to see what we had to offer. Quite disappointing, as basically only the bead shops were busy. At least now I know what both events look like and this is something to think about for the future.

Of course, it would be difficult not to buy anything during the bead fair, so here is my mini haul. I am especially looking forward to use those hematite roses .

My mini haul at The Scottish Bead Fair: glass pearls, hematite roses and Chinese vs Swarovski crystals


And I learned how to differentiate between real Swarovski crystals and Chinese ones. Apparently, the foil on the back is different.

I also couldn't help buying new badges for my collection. We also got a calendar from the same artist as we both really like the style of drawings.
