Fun at the Fair Christmas Fayre 2014

What a blast we had at the Fair Christmas Fayre on Oxford Street this year. A huge thank you to everyone who made the event a massive success from sellers, to shoppers, volunteers, musicians, the venue and those brave people that danced around Oxford Street in a reindeer outfit to draw in the unsuspecting shoppers.

We were honored to host over 35 of the best conscious sellers and to provide folk with a single location to do their Christmas shopping! Shoppers could shop til they drop with our wonderful range of gifts with something for all the family and be worry free in the knowledge their gifts were ethically sourced.1. FCF Full image

From social enterprises to charities to ethical fashion retailers and eco sellers, we had it all.  There was a stark difference between the atmosphere of the hectic, busy, uncompromising Oxford Street.and our friendly, warm, fayre which truely was a haven from the madness of the relentlessness Consumerism.

Shoppers commented on how great a selection of ethical products was available at the fayre.  We are passionate about providing a real alternative to the high street shops at Christmas and worked hard to make the event come together.  So if you didn’t make it, here is a glimpse of some of our favourite gifts:

Sustainable and Eco Friendly watches from Bamboo Revolution UK:

Dresses from Upcycled Creatively all of which are made by recycling previously used fabrics:

Khama’s Handmade bags from Malawi which support local designers and workers with a fair wage:

Ohyo‘s collapsible water bottle which mean you don’t have to keep throwing plastic bottles in the bin:

From beautiful jewellery, hand crafted gifts, scarves, vegan food to Christmas decorations, cards, beauty products, teas, chutneys, toys and accessories, it is hard to leave the Fayre without buying something for yourself too!

Once again thanks for all the support and we look forward to seeing you next year.

Fair Christmas Fayre are always keen to add to their range of products and provide a platform for ethical sellers to come together.  If you are a trader who feel they have something unique to offer drop us an email at to be added to our mailing list for future events.  Or if you have any other queries do get in touch!

Get back to the roots of Christmas

We love projects that have roots in the community which is why we are excited to welcome The Castle Climbing Centre’s Community Garden stall to Fair Christmas Fayre tomorrow.  You can’t get much more locally sourced Christmas gifts than they will have on sale…..

What will you be selling at the Fair Christmas Fayre this year?

We will be selling a selection of our delicious teas, picked straight from the garden as well as herb sugars and salts which will be new additions this year. These will also be sold alongside some very fragrant bath soaks and moisture balms. We have made this all ourselves on site. We are particularly proud of our range of teas that include blends such as ‘Woodland Blend’ and ‘Herbal Hug’.

Tell us about why you started the Castle’s Community Garden ?

The garden was started four years ago, designed using the principles of permaculture. It now provides fruit and vegetables for the cafe in the climbing centre as well as creating a peaceful atmosphere away from all the London traffic. The now bountiful garden has allowed us to even make and sell our own products and we are very excited this year to bring them to the Fair Christmas Fayre.


Why did you want to trade at the Fair Christmas Fayre?

This is a great opportunity to sell our produce alongside other ethical and local producers. It’s also a really nice way for us to take the Castle products outside of North London.

What is your favourite thing about Christmas?

The good cheer!

Any good Christmas Cracker jokes?

Why Recycling is clearly not rubbish; from garbage to Christmas gift!

­­­­­­­­­­­­Among the many stalls that will be at the Fair Christmas Fayre this Saturday is Paguro, who stand out from the crowd with their innovative, ethical business.  Paguro support designers in Cambodia and Indonesia who use recycled materials to create a range of products from bags, tablet covers, laptop holders to jewellery and stationary.  How inspiring that garbage can be made into great gifts!

What will you be selling at the Fair Christmas Fayre this year?

We will be selling a range of beautiful bags, accessories and jewellery which are all handmade using reclaimed and recycled materials.

Tell us why you started your Paguro:

We came across a number of inspirational designers in Cambodia and Indonesia. Their aim is to make beautiful items from the reclaimed materials that they find in their local areas. They hope that by using these materials and creating their products in a responsible way, they can create positive changes to the environment and to their communities.
