With a few days to go, plans are well underway for this year’s Creative Colonies event on 19th November. All Colonies residents are invited to take part, selling any creative offerings such as arts and crafts, home bakes, coffee etc.
If you’d like to take part, please email Alex on email@example.com as soon as possible with your name, address, website (if you have one) and what you’ll be selling. You’ll receive a seller’s info pack before the event and your details will be included in the publicity for customers to find you! This very successful, much-loved annual community event is a great way to meet neighbours while showcasing arts and crafts and raising funds.
Here’s what will be where so far but do look again for further updates and please spread the word to friends and family for this ideal opportunity for some unique gift shopping! Photos of some of the beautiful, unusual merchandise (at very affordable prices!) are on Stockbridge Colonies’ Facebook page.
Please bring a bag or basket and cash for all your surprise purchases!
