The Handmade Fair at Ragley Hall 2018

At the Market

This fair is one of the biggest events of the year. We have gathered some fantastic Pedddle stallholders to show their products at our Pedddle stand.

The Handmade Fair, Pedddle

We are going to The Handmade Fair!

Pedddle is a brand new platform aimed at raising awareness of independent markets and stallholders. We wanted to support our members by giving them new opportunities to reach wider audiences. So, as a collective, we have reserved a stand at ‘The Handmade Fair’ with Kirstie Allsopp!

This fair is one of the biggest events of the year in an ever-growing craft movement. We have gathered some fantastic stallholders to show their products at our Pedddle stand. As a collective, it enables traders to reach a wider audience of customers and get some experience of standing at a larger fair like this with less of the stress and pressure – as we will take care of everything!

We will be running shifts at our stand (SV5), so the customers at the fair can meet the makers.

Fancy coming down? Visit our Facebook page to be in with a chance of winning 2 free tickets.

Here’s a little bit about each of our 12 stallholders who’ll be exhibiting – feel free to link to their pages and get in contact with them before of after the fair.
