Typical Exhibitors

Below is a list of regular and typical exhibitors that attend our fairs.

 


Exhibitors

LubyLu

After making beautiful cards and stationery for family and friends I officially launched Lubylu in 2005. The wedding stationery business took off as did the greetings cards and while there is still a place in my heart for making these I have developed the business by introducing natural wax gifts.

Having always been a fan of all things deliciously scented I started researching natural wax as a more environmentally friendly alternative to paraffin wax and since 2011 my candles and scented melts have become my focus.

My natural wax candles and scented melts are made predominantly from high quality soy wax (I'm experimenting with other vegetable waxes too) which has many benefits over paraffin wax including the sustainability of the source, the reduction in soot production (your windows and surfaces won't get as dirty), no carcinogenic fumes, a longer burn time and greater fragrance hold.

Lilac Moon

I'm Hilary Sedgwick and I am Lilac Moon Designs. I started creating jewellery because I wanted to wear something different. I use handmade beads made by UK artists, which means all my pieces are unique. If you have something special in mind I will try hard to make exactly what you want. I bring a selection of my kit to each event I attend so the customer -you- can choose your own beads to create your desired piece whilst you wait.

My name is Lucy Bowring and I have been running my craft company George & Lilly for the past three years.  Though a trained graphic designer I've always been interested in textiles, arts and crafts.  

The George & Lilly range consists of a large collection of unique, individual gifts and accessories. They are handcrafted from recycled fabrics and homemade wool felt and decorated with ribbons, button and beads.
 
Each piece is made with care and attention and are all completely original in both design and concept. Handmade decorated purses and pouches, felt brooches, book covers and greetings cards.
 
Accompanying these are a variety of special one off pieces including felt framed pictures, felt cushion covers and baby booties.

Each Felt picture is wet felted then the intricate detail is added by needle felting, the finished piece is then framed to give it that final special touch.

Skiprat
Skiprat

All Skiprat creations are handcrafted in Yorkshire entirely from reclaimed or recycled materials. This includes, where possible, any fixings (screws, nails and brackets). Some pieces have interesting histories, and some are simply created from bits and pieces lying around, waiting to be given a new lease of life. We hope that you agree that despite their humble origins, our products are of great quality and are fantastic designs!  

At Skiprat we recognise the potential to create something beautiful and functional, simply from things that are thrown away. We believe, that this is not only efficient, but has an ethical element too. What's more, because our creations are made in Yorkshire they have a much lower carbon footprint than products imported from across the globe. This is the philosophy behind Skiprat; that it is possible to use things lying around us as an inspirational resource. Have a look at our products and hopefully you will be inspired by their resourcefulness and utility of their design.
