The Country Living Christmas Fair 2012

What an exciting week we have had last week at the Country Living Christmas Fair, with my little company My Aunt Agatha. We had a tiny stall - the same size as on the Spring Fair. And we sold as much on the first day as we did in the whole week on the Spring Fair.Imagine!
This is the little stall just before opening. See my sign over the stall !Yay !!!

 And here is stall before everything was sold..
It's super tiring to stand all day on a stand from morning till evening , 5 days in a row, and I am writing this while coughing and drinking fizzy Vitamin C.

I could not have done it  without my angelic mum- in-law.
Here she is modelling the latest aprons, with the super popular Winter Wonderland Christmas Stockings in the background.

I should have made hundreds more of those stockings.. they sold out in a flash.

The cushions were very quickly gone as well.. sort of sad really ( but good )- I loved the linen one on the picture with the white applique. But I can always make a few more..( once I am over this cough ! )..

It was a lovely Christmas Fair with loads of fabulous stalls. 
 Here's an overview of the stalls from the first floor.
I am just going to share a few of the pictures I took of other stalls that took my fancy- there was so much lovely stuff!!

I treated myself to one of these wreaths- it's hanging in the room as I write and it smells lovely- the link to their website is here

I loved these dogleads and collars from Scrufts- here's a link to their site. there were so many colours and designs to choose from!

I adored these children's toys, clothes and cushions from Treefall Design.The link to the shop is here
Supercute! And I just love the wallpaper.

 Other stands that I really loved with fabulous stuff were Jan Constantine with her festive Christmas cushions.
The link to the shop is here

 Then there were lovely cushions from Chloe Vintage Antiques
Love the embroidery, don't you!

 Here's the stand from Whinberry & Antler. Jacinta and I met at the Spring fair and have kept in touch ever since.
She is super talented and will go very far, I am absolutely sure.Here some more pictures from her stall.

Then there was the huge stand from Susie Watson Designs.Here are some pictures of the stand ..

 And lastly a girl who had a stand for the first time - two stands down from me .Her new website will launch soon and is called  Sophiemadethis

She used lovely Westphalia fabrics for her patchwork cushions and I hope she will do very well with her new website and het future plans.

Hope you have enjoyed the show- it's goodnight from me and goodnight from Maud ( and Millie) - we all need to recover from the busy week!

Have a great rest of the week!

My first stockist and the Country Living Christmas Fair

Things have been super busy lately.
 I am very proud to present my first stockist ever, the Merchant's House .
 From today some of my stock is now on show in their shop.
Here are some pictures of their Christmas Present Room, in which they have placed the My Aunt Agatha products.
Here below is a display of another designer by the by.
It's a lovely old building with lots of character as you can see.

My cushions, teacosies and AGA covers, and cafetiere warmers are all there to look at, admire and buy :-)

The link to the shop is here by the way.
I have also been working very hard at producing lots of stock for the Country Living Christmas Fair next week .
And here are some of the products I will be taking to the show...

Here is the link to my entry on their site by the way.

My mum seems to be thriving in the care home.In fact she is doing so well, with the regular support and the lack of worries, she will be transferred to a regular ward with residents that do not suffer form dementia at all. And she will be getting her own room.So all good.It's been an emotional roller coaster but I am
super proud of her.

Hope you have a great weekend people!!
