South Molton Christmas Fair!

Good day to you one and all!

Well, haven’t we had a busy weekend!


On Saturday we had our local Lynton late night Christmas shopping. We decorated the shop so its all very snuggly and Christmassy! John made his very special mulled wine, and Claire baked some wonderful Christmas treats including star and Christmas tree shaped biscuits! Delicious!
With Christmas music playing and all the locals stocking up on their winter socks it certainly makes us start to feel full of festive fun!

The next morning, Sunday in fact, after being very controlled on the mulled wine, John and Juliet were busy setting up for the South Molton Christmas Market, (FATSTOCK)


It was the first time we had done this show but as it is at our local pannier market to our Mill in South Molton, we felt we wanted to be there. And it was such a pleasure! Very different to the normal shows that we do – a real country Christmas show. There were great things to see, little piglets, lots and lots of sheep, and the most ginormous parsnip that has ever been seen! With lots of competitions including, ‘best three coloured potatoes’ and ‘best home-made jam’. Plus loads of local hand-reared turkeys to be brought for Christmas dinner. It was a spectacle!

very big parsnips

We were chuffed as we took our new range of sock, ‘The Exmoor Sock’ to the show, and many of the farmers said that had to have a pair as they own the Exmoor Blueface sheep that these socks are made from … it made us smile and feel all warm inside!


And, just so you know, we have a special Christmas offer for these very socks on our website in the lead up to Christmas in case you fancy treating your feet (or somebody else’s feet for that matter)

Anyway, will stop waffling and hope you’re having a lovely run up to Christmas.

Over and Out for now!
