The Danson Festival

This Saturday I went along to the Danson Festival with my cousin and her beautiful baby who was celebrating her 1st birthday!

The Danson Festival is a mixture between the local town show and a mini music festival. It runs for two days and features live music from local bands, a funfair, the local car clubs and local crafts people.

While perusing the craft tents we found some lovely products for sale. Like the beautiful hand made soap from intercandle gifts

We met Susan Ilic who designs and makes 'pastimes picture boxes'. They are bespoke picture boxes that can either be vintage or contemporary. Susan told us about her plans to open a shop in Bexlyheath in the next couple of weeks. You can order by email.

We came across the amazing stand of Country Calico Kids run by Marion McCarthy from Swanley, Kent. Filled with lovely handmade gifts, from bears to doorstops her stall was filled with a wide verity of items that could be personalised. Marion is contactable by email.

Finally we found Annie May, run by Angie and Louise who had a lovely collection of handmade items both jewellery and things for the home.

They host home party's and are based in south London call 07772240628 for details.

I snapped up this lovely pin cushion for £8.

The Danson festival is a great event and caters to so many interests it is defiantly worth poping along!
