After much searching we eventually found an outlet at which to try out our furnishings and homewares part of the business. (Garden and plant fairs seem relatively abundant for The Gardener’s Blacksmith.) Situated in front of Exeter Cathedral main entrance, we had a lovely spot on a baking hot three days. And on Saturday we had some splendid entertainment right next to us with some percussion dancers (a looser form of Irish dancing), Croydon male voice choir and the Dart Vally Stompers. Despite the counter attractions of The World Cup and Wimbledon, we had a successful first show. Our wall plaques sold well and several people were interested in weather vanes. We’ll definitely be giving the show another go next year.
