Spirit of Christmas Finds – Day 1


I visited Spirit of Christmas at Olympia yesterday which was lovely, tiring but very lovely.  It was great to see so many friends and people that live in my phone all in one place, it was helpful to be able to put a face to the name and see their wares in the flesh.  Temptation!!  There were of course, as you would expect from an event as large as Spirit, lots of amazing and interesting stands that might appeal to you and whet your appetite!  Instead of a wordy blog here’s a few photos with links to share with you.
