Hi Everyone

Firstly many thanks for taking a moment to come and visit Fromthe Craftbox.  My name is Michelle Duffy and upon becoming a mummy to Sophia (who’s now 3) in January 2015 I started on a new journey in my life with setting up my own Arts, Crafts and Gift Markets across the Southern Parts of Hampshire.

25th April 2017
Just to let you know that we now have our 2017 dates online. ALL 2017 applications should be made through the website only. This will allow me to deal with each enquiry in an effective and prompt way. Applicants will be required to pay a non refundable deposit for markets booked. I will advise you about this when you make an booking enquiry.

Locally Handmade Family Markets

For 2017 our aims are very much Handmade with our slogan of “Locally Handmade Family Markets – made by the community for the community”
So if you are a fellow stallholder I would be delighted for you to come and join me in creating fantastic Markets offering the general public with a wide variety and selection of stalls to enjoy. Please pop across to the Craftbox own main page for further details, or there are direct tabs to see the different venues and a one click application form for each Event. I would respectively advise that the aims of Fromthe Craftbox are that stallholders have ideally handcrafted or locally sourced the items or products for which they wish to sale. We would advise that unless otherwise stated or running a themed Event, Fromthe Craftbox does not sadly accept party planner style bookings, including the likes of Forever Living, Body Shop, Avon, Pamper Chef and similar.

Craft Markets – More Information

Where possible the Markets will feature my very own run tearooms with freshly home baked cakes and biscuits along with not just tea, coffee and squash, but a whole variety of hot chocolates, decaff options and fruit/herbal teas.

There will also be a section or room for little ones to have a go and start crafting themselves, with craft activities available to make and take home. We do welcome Osborne Books or child related small businesses in this section or separate room.
As you enter our Markets, there is a welcome desk, where stallholders can leave leaflets and contact/business cards, plus for 2017 I hope to have printed stallholder lists, so that customers can take away your details too.

For the first 25 visitors/children we shall also be looking at continuing our FREE mini projects.
There will also be a free prize draw to have the chance of winning a Hamper of goodies kindly donated from the Stallholders attending the event, all you will need to do is complete a comment card and post it in the Comment Box supplied.

I really hope that you will enjoy what I have to offer and will meet with me and the stallholders at one or more of my Markets in 2017!
