I stumbled across the Brecon Craft Fair last month whilst meeting a friend in Brecon for tea. Of course I’ve known about the fair for years and usually stop by at Christmas to pick up some last-minute gifts, but I’d forgotten that it makes a regular appearance, in fact this Saturday 21st July.
We were blown away by the quality of products on display and the fact that they were affordable. We came away with several bags filled with goodies, including several beautiful ceramic serving bowls, some large mugs, an amazing carving and some really fun greetings cards.
The monthly Brecon Craft Fair is a great place to pick up local Welsh arts and crafts at reasonable prices.
The Brecon Craft Fair takes place in the town’s historic market hall and is held every third Saturday of the month between 9am and 5pm. Each and every month, up to around 60 traditional and independent craft workers and artists set up shop in the market hall, resulting in a truly unique collection of Welsh arts and crafts; from beautiful handmade soft furnishings to hand painted jewellery and locally crafted Faberge style eggs.
Not only will you be able to pick up a handful of goodies, you’ll also be able to talk to artists and craft workers themselves and find out just how much effort went into creating each and every item. You will be pleasantly surprised not only by the quality of the crafts on offer, but also by the fact that you can pick things up for the fraction of the price you’d find elsewhere.
So, if you’re looking for local Welsh arts and crafts at really great prices, be sure to pay a visit to the Brecon Craft Fair! Visit www.breconcraftfair.co.uk for details
