Christmas Craft Fairs in Suffolk: Handmade Holiday Treasures
It’s fair to say that a gift that comes with its own story is better than a gift that was simply purchased online in haste after the buyer realised that Christmas was less than three weeks away. Whilst often a little more challenging to come into possession of, the range of Christmas fairs which take place around Suffolk during November and December make it easier than ever to pick up a few handmade treasures when staying at one of our Barns or Barges. To ensure that you’re able to visit the very best of them this year, we’ve put together a shortlist of our favourites:
Stonham Barns Park, 25th and 26th November
Bringing together the very best bits of Christmas the Stonham Barns Park fair features an abundance of handmade, locally produced gifts that are perfect for whoever you may be buying for. Not only that, but the fair also features stalls serving up mulled wine, mince pies and all other manner of Christmas-time refreshments. Dog-friendly and complete with live music, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a better place to buy a unique gift whilst immersing yourself in the Christmas spirit.
Bourne Valley Crafters Christmas Fair, 25th and 26th November
What makes the Bourne Valley Crafters Christmas Fair an attractive proposition is the limits they put on stallholders. More specifically, the organisers ensure that each art and craft is never represented by more than two stalls. They’re also sticklers for making sure that all of the gifts on display are entirely handmade. With this in mind, shoppers are able to peruse an incredible range of gifts to find something for everyone on their list.
OMG Fayres Lowestoft, 16th December
Established sixteen years ago, OMG Fayres in Lowestoft brings together an enchanting Christmas Makers Market to ensure that every visitor is able to pick up something special for themselves, their family, or indeed their very own Christmas tree. With stalls devoted to various gift-types, the veteran organisers of the OMG Fayres have developed an enviable reputation when it comes to places to find incredible homemade gifts.
Mind, Body and Soul Christmas Event, 9th December
No doubt the best place to treat yourself this Christmas, the Mind, Body and Soul Christmas Event which takes place in Needham Market combines spiritual gifts with holistic treatments that make for the perfect tonic to Christmas time madness. In addition to spa treatments and gift buying, the event also hosts a range of workshops to make for a truly refreshing day out.
