CHRISTMAS came early at Blenheim Palace for the Living Crafts for Christmas show.

More than 130 designers and makers were at the palace in Woodstock at the weekend selling everything from jewellery to Christmas wreaths.

Konesar Gifts, based near Dorking, Surrey, was exhibiting at the show for the fourth time. Director Malathi Armitt said: “It went brilliantly. The atmosphere is very good.”

Among the traders were Joanna Bains and Loraine Hussey, who run The Cake Makers in Watlington.


Mrs Bains said: “It was our sixth year and it was lovely. We have repeat customers that come to us every year so it’s always lovely to see them, and lots of new people too. 

"We always thoroughly enjoy it and do a spot of shopping too.”

The show ran from Friday to Sunday.
