Only 12 months since launching The Emporium on Kelsall Road Tarvin, Cheshire Brick and Slate held its first Country Craft Fair at the weekend. For this first event there were thirteen specialist stall holders, selling a wide range of products, including jewelry, paintings, sculptures & chainsaw carvings. Stalls were both inside the buildings and also in the yard.
One of the stall holders, Louise Demif, was show-casing the food hampers put together by her company I Love. Louise said "For a first time event I think the two days have gone very well, especially on Saturday when there were lots of people about. I will be delighted to come back again."
Malcolm Youde, owner of Cheshire Brick and Slate, said "The numbers on Saturday were very promising but on Sunday, other events in the area may have affected visitor numbers. However, we intend to make the Country Craft Fair a monthly event and we already have 22 stall holders booked for the next event at the end of August".
On a less happy note, it was announced that Annabelle's Tea Room at the Emporium had ceased trading. Apart from special occasions like the craft fair, the tea room will be closed until a new tenant can be found, hopefully in the near future.
