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

photo-33 (1)A beautiful range of gifts, homeware and jewellery hand-crafted in collaboration with ethical producers in developing countries. We support artisans, designers and makers who have less access to markets through design-led collaborations and opportunities. At the Fair Christmas Fair we will showcase jewellery produced by Maasai Artisans in Tanzania and recycled paper artists in Swaziland as well as recycled wooden Wall Art produced in collaboration with our artisan partners in Cape Town.

 Why did you want to trade at Fair Christmas Fayre?

We believe that Christmas doesn’t have to be a consumerist nightmare! Unfortunately, it’s hard to find ethical products conveniently. The Fair Christmas Fayre gives independent ethical retailers an opportunity to connect to thousands of eager Christmas shoppers, all in one place and in the heart of London’s busiest shopping destination!

What is your favourite thing about Christmas?

Turning on the Christmas lights- we love a bit of sparkle!

Any good Christmas Cracker jokes?

Why did no one bid for Rudolph and Blitzen on eBay?

Because they were two deer!
