Morrab Midsummer Fair

18 Jun

In spite of a rainy start and definitely not feeling like midsummer, the Fair went off really well.

We sold bric-a-brac (I was on the bric-a-brac stall) in the library, along with cakes, crafty items (including gorgeous printed works by the library’s own very talented Alex Higlett) and, of course, books.

In addition to all the stalls in the library itself, there were stalls around the fountain in the Morrab Gardens:

There was lots of food, including these oh-so-pretty cupcakes:

And delicious treats from the lovely ladies of Ottoman Kitchen:

And stunning wrapping paper and cards by Desert Rose, which I couldn’t resist:

At the end of the day, a drawing was held for the BIG RAFFLE we’ve been running for the past months. Sadly, I didn’t win either of the prizes I had my eye on. This John Piper painting:

… or this Anne Bull painting:

Despite not winning and although my feet are killing me, it was an excellent day and lots of money was raised, which is the best part of all.
