Buzzy Bee Wax Melts…

“Buzzybeewaxmelts was formed during lockdown like a ot of new crafters. I do this for the enjoyment and the amazing fragrances I can bring to my home and yours. We make soy wax melts in all shapes and sizes, giving you the option of a pic n mix for variety or a snap bar in your favourite fragrance. We’ve also made the new Scented sizzlers which have been a big hit. Our prices are really kind on your purse too. 💛

Pink Lotus Jewellery…
“Hi, I’m Emily! I founded Pink Lotus Jewellery in early 2020 and have been running it ever since alongside my job and becoming a new mum!  I live in Thurston and love how the community spirit of our village has grown over time, especially with so many fayres and events now!
I always struggled with anxiety and stress throughout my life and at 2019 it hit a peak, it was then I discovered the amazing healing qualities of natural crystal and gemstones. I bought my first ever gemstone bracelet (Amethyst) for my anxiety and I never took it off, I felt truly lost without it! It undoubtedly made me feel calmer and the knot of anxiety it my stomach felt much looser.  Being a creative at heart, I felt I wanted to create these stunning bracelets and pieces of jewellery myself, so I could share their magic with friends and family.
This was how it started! I now have an Etsy shop with over 100 unique, handmade pieces of jewellery, as well as an active Facebook and Instagram group with lots of wonderful supporters!  This is my first craft fayre and it is something I’ve wanted to participate in for a while! I hope you’ll come and say hello and see if a piece of crystal jewellery chooses you!”
