Archives for the month of: October, 2011



The fayre opened in October 2011 specifically to showcase and provide a selling platform for local crafters and artisans starting out in business or taking forward their art.

It has been so successful that we now have a small shop in Atherstone at 37 Long Street. ARTISANS opened in June and exhibits and sell products from currently 8 different crafters.

Crafters have been selected to offer you the customer a wonderful shopping experience, enabling you to purchase a unique handcrafted piece as a gift for yourself or friends and family.

The Fayre will run bi monthly from the Bungalow ( Plant information Centre) at Dobbies Garden Centre throughout the summer then monthly from September 2015 through to Christmas commencingbe from Saturday the 14th and Sunday the 15th March  2015, the 2nd weekend of every month.

We invite you be you a lover of Arts and Crafts or if you are simply curious and want to purely visit us, to browse our wares, and hopefully purchase one or more of our unique pieces.

Our crafters will change from time to time but will be posted on our site.
