A fortnight ago, I paid a visit to the Wealden Times Midsummer Fair. This annual summer fair showcases lots of lovely businesses, many of them local. All exhibitors are hand-picked for their high quality, craftmanship and design.
The Midsummer fair was held at the beautiful Hole Park Gardens in Rolvenden, Kent. This rural Kent village is just a stone’s throw from where I live, so it’s an ideal trip out for me while The Little Chick is at playgroup.
I arrived fairly early and before it got busy, enjoyed a stroll around the beautiful gardens, which were open during the fair to ticket holders.
Then it was time for tea…
Of course I couldn’t resist a cake from Cocolicious‘ beautiful cake stall. Luckily, they always have a range of delicious gluten-free cakes on offer!
Then it was time for a look around the marquees.
Here’s a selection of my favourite stalls.
Tatty Tess unique, handmade, lovely clothes for little girls. It’s always lovely to see Tessa and her gorgeous vintage inspired creations. As usual, her stall looked lovely! I’m particularly fond of her miniature sewing machine and till (which she always explains are definitely not for sale!)
I really love the colourful, original jewellery of Victorious Bee Their stall looked really striking to compliment their bold jewellery. (I’m a big fan of the bee logo too!)
Champions of British made goodies Happy and Glorious had some lovely new products for sale. Ceramic button earrings and brooches in shades of blue were one of my favourite items.
Other stalls which caught my eye were The Indoor Botanist with their original mini-terrariums and bottle gardens.
Salt and Pamper’s stall looked good too, with modern styling and simple packaging.
The Wealden Times Midsummer Fair is truly a feast for the eyes! I can definitely recommend visiting next year; I’m looking forward to it already.
