The local Rudolph Steiner/Waldorf school Raphael House had their annual food, toy and craft festival this past weekend and for the second year in a row I had a stall. It’s really a perfect fit – all my felt toys and Waldorf patterns after all. Last year I did really well. This year I did really well and had very little stuff left. As usual it was funny the things that were in demand – it’s never what I think is the cutest.
The Christmas room. It smelt amazing and I love having my stall right outside it:
The parent craft room – I had to take a photo of it before it filled up. It is always filled to capacity with people by the time I get to it during the fair:
The blackboard in Class 1:
Fuschia ornaments – sadly long gone by the time I went back to buy one. Ironically I have a fuschia bush outside my front door that I am waging war on. It grows back practically overnight. Yet craft it’s flowers out of beautiful felt and I’ll happily pay money for them! Crazy woman!
My rather restrained purchases:
Sadly the wooden toys I waited all year to buy more of from the parent craft room hadn’t arrived for the fair so I settled for some handspun merino and handmade toadstool needles. They were parent made but one parent did tell me that the Year 3 kids make knitting needles to gift to the Year 1 kids who will be learning to knit that year. So the needles have a special meaning to me. Plus they are just bloody cute. The lamb and toadstool are just because I have no restraint when I have money in my hand.
