Halfpenny Home visits the I make fun stuff market in Ipswich

This was the lovely message left for us by Anna today. We're really glad you like our stuff Anna, we love it too!

What a lovely day for a craft and vintage market! The bunting was out and so was the sun in Ipswich today. The Saint's Market was organised by the I make fun stuff people and Loveone who have a very lovely shop in St. Peter's Street.
Loveone were hosting the cream tea parties today, we had 'two to go' and very nice they were too - thanks to Peter and Tracy Ranger for tipping us off! I've been email and blog buddies with Tracy since January but had we hadn't properly met until today and it was such a treat to finally get together as they are usually so busy looking after The Gedgrave Flock - we have their yarn at Halfpenny Home as it is so soft, shiny and beautiful to knit with (can't you tell we're big fans).
We had a little time to play hangman...
make pom pom ribbon bracelets...
and enjoy some refreshments...
before we packed it all back into the trunks ready for Adam to take us back to Halfpenny Home.

Thank you so much Pixieannie for all the giggles, hope the ride back home on your new bike wasn't too wobbly - your basket was very full! Thanks to Adam for putting up with us all and helping pack and unpack and finally, thank you for the lovely button doodles Beth. Nic x


  1. So much fun was had by all. I want to do it all over again. The location was perfect but it is the people that make such an event so successful.

    The ride home was indeed a little on the wobbly side. Every rabbit hole and mole hill, carefully traversed on my Pixie Pashley Princess.

    Damn you make one hell of a fine scotch egg.


  2. Love the pom pom bracelets!

  3. What a lovely time we had - so lovely to meet you all! And what fab things you had on your tables - can't wait to use the funky italian buttons - I must stop buying more buttons - I just can't resist them! Glad you enjoyed the cream teas! T x
