The Hobbiton Market.

This weekend I have had a fun time hosting my vintage crockery stall at the Hobbiton Market in the pretty village of Hurst Green. The area has connections with the Lord of the rings author J R R Tolkein as he occasionally lectured at nearby Stonyhurst college. It is thought that the surrounding countryside and views of Pendle Hill and its associations with witchcraft and sorcery inspired him in his writing. So of course the village is the perfect venue for a Middle Earth craft market….along with bands and a beer festival. Here are a few pics from the weekend.

Even though I am not a big Lord of the Rings fan I really enjoyed the event and it is going to be a yearly thing. We even had a bit of sunshine :0)
Hope you enjoyed your weekend….
