Farnborough Show

Look what goodies I treated myself to at the Craft Show in Farnborough yesterday.
I had never been to a show before (apart from a Wedding Show at the NEC) and wasn't quite sure what to expect. This one was a manageable size but even so I sometimes had problems remembering on which stands I had seen something that I wanted to go back to see again!
There were some real bargains too, e.g. 4 sets of Nesties for £55.
I also bought some great stamps and punches and some replacement Copics and ink.
I didn't avail myself of any of the workshops or 'doing' things, but had a good time nevertheless.
Now to play!


  1. now that's what I call a gorgeous stash of goodies! Glad you enjoyed yourself

  2. Hi Chrissie,
    It sounds like a good show for shopping. When I went to the NEC craft show it was manic!
    You have bought some fabulous goodies. I like the look of the seaside stamp set.
    Have fun!

  3. Hi Chrissie
    That looks like a great stash. Good job you went yesterday, I've just read that the show will be closed today because of the weather.
    I will get there one of these years.

  4. Wow what a bargain with the Nesties. I usually pay £60 for 4 sets, so you did really well!!!

    Enjoy playing.


  5. Oh you did well! I think as 'national' shows go, Farnborogh is the most manageable; as you can probably tell from my blog post, I get a bit impatient with it all!

  6. great goodie selection Chrissie, I prefer the smaller shows although I've never been to Farnborough myself....bit too far. I have been to the NEC a couple of times but it gets a bit manic, have a great day
    Hugs Daniele

  9. Ooh, don't show Paula! I've also answered my own question re the PB stamp! Should have come here first and had a look at what you got. Looks like it was a great day.


  10. Wow what a fab selection of crafting goodies! Glad you had a great time and made it worthwhile. Lovely seeing all of your new makes using some of your new stash too. Lovely 'crown' set!

  11. Hmmm - I'm really envious of all that stash Chrissie!! You've done really well there - I love all the stuff you've bought - isn't it exciting when you get it home and set it all out before you... bliss...

    happy crafting with it all
