Drina Bakes…

“Hi, I am Drina of Drina Bakes and I enjoy baking from my home in a little village in Suffolk. I make a large range of chocolate based fudge and tiffin. Cookie Toast is very popular and consists of chocolate spreads and chocolate bars surrounded by a cookie dough. Delicious cold or warmed up in the microwave! I make a large array of rocky road too and like to experiment with flavours. I love to meet new people and also see returning customers. I also make Gluten Free and Vegan products.”
All my products are priced at £3.50 or a selection of 3 for £10, 5 for £15 or 7 for £20
Wonderous Wax…
“My name is Erin I own Wonderous.Wax and am based in halstead. The business started in 2023 with crystal healing candles after suffering a pregnancy loss and needing an emotional outlet.  The crystal infused candles were very popular so I expanded and began to  introduce wax melts which began to grow in popularity due to the long lasting fragrance and scent throw and quirky designs. We offer melts for any occasion, baby-showers, Hendon’s or even as just birthday gifts. We use Eco-soy Wax for all our products and our packaging is all recyclable, we try to keep it as environmentally friendly as possible.  Each of our products are made with a purpose with each crystal and precious stone holding various healing and cleansing properties. Not only good for yourself but amazing fragrance and comfort for your home. “


Feather & Hare…

“Feather & Hare is a small family company based in scenic Suffolk.  We have hand drawn & designed a beautiful collection of simple & endearing greetings cards and stationery which we hope you’ll love as much as we do. Our collection of cute & quirky little characters are all printed on sustainably sourced or recycled materials, the natural world is our biggest source of inspiration & we want to see it preserved and protected.”

I really enjoyed today at Hadleigh and I have got home and my online shop at etsy, has had loads of views plus sold a few more pieces to people who were there today.  So Cogs and Gems would like to thank you and can’t wait for your future event dates, thank you again.

Debbie - Cogs and Gems


I wanted to say how much I enjoyed doing the Lavenham craft fair.  I have to admit at first I was concerned that there might not be as much footfall upstairs, but it was virtually busy all day, plus I had an excellent spot in the centre of the room, so thank you!
