Hello Christmas Shoppers!!  With Christmas coming, I am running a glorious Christmas Craft Fair at the Nip and Tipple in Whalley Range/ Chorlton.  On display will be a range of crafts from some of the best Crafts people in Manchester, washed down with a cup of coffee or even a mug of warming gluhwein!

What’s on sale at the Fair?

  • Hand-made Cards
  • Brooches & Jewellery
  • Hairbands, Accessories & Tiaras
  • Personalised clothing
  • Cushions
  • Pottery
  • Christmas Decorations
  • Children’s Gifts – Baking sets, Pictures, Boys & Girls clothing
  • Monsters!!
  • Crocheted & Knitted goods

Here are some images to whet your whistle…more to follow soon:

I’ve seen the wares of all exhibitors with my own brown eyes and I can vouch for the high quality of all exhibitors – it’s going to be a lovely Fair with something for all wallets – Prices range from £1 to £150.

Where is the Craft Fair?

Nip and Tipple

197 Upper Chorlton Road,

Manchester, M16 0BH

The fair is being held in the relaxed atmosphere of the Nip & Tipple Bar, on Upper Chorlton Rd.  It’s a great place to come and relax with a cup of coffee/ glass of gluhwein, some cake and good company.  If you’re too tired or too busy for the bustle of the Manchester Markets, come down to the Nip and Tipple and enjoy a more relaxed affair:

Hi Emily,

Was at the Nip n Tipple over the wkend and saw the craft fair posters. Although I live in Bury, Im hoping to pop down. Just a query though, I finally had to give up work last Dec due to my M.E. coming back with a vengeance and paralysing me. I got back into my arts n crafts and just wondered how it works doing some fair like this. I have no idea if ita any good or not but want to start a portfolio. I would love to do a fair like this more just to get some unbiased response to my work but have no idea where to start! If you have a few mins and some advice, it would be highly appreciated.
Thanks and hope to get to the fair, (fingers crossed I’ll be having a good day!!)

Hi Anja,

That sounds debilitating and difficult to manage. Art and crafts are a good way of generating income, so what you’re doing sounds really positive. Perhaps we could meet up for a coffee?? If you bring some of your items, maybe I could come up with some ideas for you and we could discuss portfolio presentation options. I can explain what happens at the craft fairs and you can maybe be involved in the next one.

I’m really happy to share what has worked for me and any ideas I can generate! I look forward to meeting you – one day next week would be good for me, or the week after. Also, if you’re not well we can re-arrange on the day if you feel you can’t make it.

Emily
