Craftacular is a great opportunity for indie designers to sell their products and for shoppers to find something handmade and unique. And what an event it was! A crowd had gathered before the doors opened and inside was no different. Crafters, Christmas shoppers and their patient other halves laughed and chatted with stall holders, while bagging Christmas gifts and stocking fillers.
