Dog Friendly in Clitheroe. ^^

I have updated my Dog Friendly Clitheroe Post as there are a few new businesses in town that welcome dogs, since I first wrote it. Hugo has been busy visiting a few!

It’s raining cats and dogs and your out and about in Clitheroe with your four legged friend.Its not beer garden weather, so where can you and Rover ( or Hugo in my case!) shelter from the rain, sit down with a coffee, relax with a pint, or indeed indulge in a little reTail therapy?  Check out these places with your pooch…..after a run in the castle grounds of course!

Fabulous Finds from the Craft Fair.:)

At the weekend I took my teacup candle stall to the  Lets Get Crafty craft fair in Whalley.  This is the main fair I do and happily I had a great day sales and fun wise. I was able to spend some of/ well ok, most of my earnings on a few  lovely purchases at the fair. 🙂

Some of my teacup candles.

My fave stall today , Sew To Soul
Polly The Vintage Caravan.

There were as usual some gorgeous stalls. And  Polly The Vintage Caravan was there serving tea, coffee and scrumptious cakes in pretty vintage crockery.

Here are a few treats and gifts I was tempted by :


This colourful cat cushion from Sew To Soul makes a purrfect addition to our bedroom.


I bought some Hot Paprika Puree from The Paprika Lady to add to chilli’s and stews. Looking forward to making some tasty Goulash.

These socks and beads are from the ethical and lovely One Planet stall and are a birthday gift for a friend.

In fact Kerry who does the One Planet stall took some of my candles to sell at the One Planet shop in Accrington. 🙂

Here is my favourite and biggest purchase from the fair. I really treated myself !

Its a beautiful duck egg blue lovingly upholstered chair.Looks wonderful in my blue and white bedroom.Very Shabby Chic. Another treat from Sew To Soul

I’ve said before that craft fairs and independant shops are ideal places for buying unique and gorgeous gifts. I also discovered a newly opened shop in my home town at the weekend called Urban Sheep where I bought a pretty blue bunny pattened summer bag as a present for a friend. I am truly tempted to indulge in one for myself!


Thanks for admiring my pretty purchases. Check out your local craft fairs and independant shops. Who knows what treasures you may find. 🙂
