The Dorset Team New Items

We are fortunate enough to have so many talented and creative members of our team.  Each week we will take a look at the newest items that have been listed on the Etsy store from our wonderful group.

The weather over the last week has certainly been on the wet and cold side!  The nights are drawing in and many of us are celebrating the arrival of Autumn by snuggling down in our cosy homes.  What better way to indulge in the comfy season than with these beautiful decorative pillows from Alena Bessant at Heart Cushions

What to Remember...

The Dorset Team New Items

We are fortunate enough to have so many talented and creative members of our team.  Each week we will take a look at the newest items that have been listed on the Etsy store from our wonderful group.

With the nights drawing in and a definite chill in the air, many people are now starting to think of Christmas. With this in mind, the wonderful Lynn Davy from Nemeton has created this beautiful Charm Bracelet that is full of festive cheer!


And for those of us that are not quite ready to settle for the days of Winter just yet, why not celebrate the beauty and wonder of the Autumn season with this Boho style Beaded Wrap Bracelet by the talented Sarah Ricketts at Deliciousbits

Ideas on Preparing for a Craft Fair

The Countdown to Christmas

There is now no denying that Christmas is around the corner and for many crafters, this is when we're hitting full speed ahead in terms of making and selling. With the next Dorset Team Craft Fair three weeks away, it is easy for us to start making furiously but it has been really nice to see some new sellers having the courage to ask for tips and advice and some seasoned sellers readily giving support. In the next few posts, I'll be focusing on what to do in preparation and things to consider. This is in no way meant to scare anyone and will not be a 'tick off' list as some of the ideas won't be relevant to all sellers. But it will be a starting point, hopefully. It would be great if people can comment with their own advice and also say 'Hi' if they're exhibiting! I'm sorry to have formally mentioned Christmas to all of those who are in denial but I do think it is allowed now we're in October. (It certainly wasn't right when I saw that a supermarket was selling mince pies in September, however!) And to all those fully underway with their Christmas makes, Merry Christmas! Ruth
