The Christmas Craft Markets

Today was the annual Christmas Craft Markets in our parish. As well as various stall holders who pay a small fee for a place at the markets, we also have a few parish stalls where items are sold to raise money (much needed funds) for our church. 
Because I'm still recuperating I was excused from actively helping this year, so was able to 'swan around' as a guest! 
I saw this on one of the parish stalls...
I was immediately entranced! The price tag was $18 with funds going to the Parish...so it was a done deal as far as I was concerned...and the money was handed over and it was mine. 
A few more purchases...
A wreath made with 'scarf yarn'. I've bought one of these from this stall holder before...
A 'burp' towel bought from another stall holder. Nearly every baby in 'my circle' has 'spat up' on one of these lovely towels draped over a mum or dad's shoulder. This one is for DH's grandchild arriving in early February. 
A bag?
Open it up and there are little dolls inside.
The idea is for the children to use the dolls to tell a story...
Good for travelling. Over the years I bought a few items from this stall holder and all items were loved by parents and children alike. 
So that was my Saturday morning.
