Just some photos from this year’s Shetland’s Craft Fair held in two huge rooms (the Main Hall and the Bowls Hall) at the Clickmin Leisure Complex in Lerwick.
Organised annually by Shetland Arts & Crafts Association and open over the whole weekend.
I love my yearly visit, although I do always end up seeing things I want for myself and not anyone else.
I managed to start my Christmas shopping, so that’s a plus.
There were some truly inspirational and lovely things.
The standard was as usual very high and, for such a small community, there are some very skilled crafts people in Shetland.
The Craft Fair is also the perfect opportunity to bump into old friends.
And meet new ones too.
So I had a very happy morning browsing the endless stalls, trying to see everything whilst attempting to get myself thinking Christmas-shopping thoughts.
I could’ve bought myself piles of presents which is not the point, I know.
But I came home with many ideas too of what I want for Christmas.
You can buy almost anything at the Fair from homespun wool….
… to polar bears with great expressions ……
…. or skull and crossbones juggling balls!
What’s not to love?
We are very lucky to have this on our doorstep.
