Ally Pally stash


I had a good day yesterday at Ally Pally though there weren't as many stands as usual and for the first time ever I came home with money, and not just a few pounds either! Such a shame that not so many companies are attending the show, a lot of which is down to cost I believe. When you don't have a good craft shop in Norwich other than The Range or Hobbycraft shows are a great place to look at everything. It is also lovely to meet up with fellow crafters and I met Sam Alpine for the first time which was lovely.

I stocked up on essentials like card blanks as my stock was very low.


A few stamps and some Copics.


Papers and embellishments. I really wanted some more new papers but they just weren't about this year.

Some of my favourite things, dies and at some great prices too.

It looks like a successful shopping trip! I went to Craft4Crafters in Exeter earlier this year and, although it's only a smallish show, I thought it was quite disappointing this year as there were a lot less craft stands and more stands selling cleaning materials, pots and pans, etc - not what I went to a craft show to see!

Glad you had a good time at Ally Pally - I did wish I could have gone but far too far. Think you may be right about the cost for the stall holders.

Seems that you have had a good day! How many lovely goodies you have bought! I have heard about this fair, it seems as an "English CHA"... In Italy there are some fairs in the year but all away from my town.

Fabulous collection Marianne. I love the Woodware stamp and the Tonic fairy door die.
How disappointing that there was the number of exhibitors that you had hoped for.
Enjoy playing with your goodies.
