Autumn/Winter 2023 Events

Once again it’s time to unpack my plate racks (planner stands), Handbag stands (great for notebooks) and my fairy lights (battery powered of course!) because it’s festive market time!

I’ve not always been a fan of markets – they can be quite daunting, especially when you’re hearing people’s comments about things you’ve drawn and spent hours putting together.  But I’m much better at markets than I was and actually quite enjoy them now!

I’ve got events a few weekends in a row in the local Oxfordshire/Wiltshire area, and I’m going to quite a few new markets this year too as I thought it might be fun. 

Final note before we get to the dates – if you’d like to order anything and have ready for collection at my markets just enter the code MARKETCOLLECTION for the shipping costs to be deducted.  Then you can come and collect it on the day, once you’ve done the rest of your shopping with the other fantastic small businesses that’ll be there. (Make sure you drop me a note to say which market you're attending though so I'll definitely have it packed).

So this year I will be at: 


A sail-type banner is outside infront of old buildings and a clear blue sky.  It reads Artists and Makers Fair, with the Sally Evans logo at the top.

Thame Artists and Makers Fair

Saturday 11th November, Thame Town Hall, 10am - 4pm





Flyer for the Kennet Valley Christmas Art and Craft Fayre including information about the businesses featured.

There is also a Preview Night on Friday 17th November which is a ticketed event with fizz and festive sweet treats - do get in touch with me for ticket information.

Of course I’m well aware that not everyone will be able to make it in person, so don’t forget that the website is there with all your stationery and gift needs catered for.  Plus everything is the same price as if at the markets, with only the flat £4 postage fee to add.


Have you seen my ‘Small shops to shop small’  blog post? Although it’s a few years old I updated it last month and so it’s the perfect place to start to find other small businesses for spending your hard earned cash with. And you’ll get some wonderful, unique, gifts to give too so it really is a win win!
