There will be a wide range of stalls featuring goods such as old tools; kitchenware; ceramics; silver; art Royal Doulton; Beswick China; quilted cushions; Belleek China; handcrafted jewellery; knitwear; decoupage; local photography; brooches; bags and buttons; jams; marmalades; chutneys and jellies; glass and linens; children’s books; trinkets and treasures; cakes; biscuits and traybakes; plants; crafts and cards.
