Today , I went to The Barn by Sarah Collins, a gift fair situated in Wheathampstead. Wheathampstead is a quaint and charming village in Hertfordshire, The United Kingdom.
Beautiful countryside scenery close to the gift fair. The weather was perfect.
There were two shops selling homewares, food , handmade gifts, accessories, jewellery and clothing.
The Rustic Barns from outside.
Currently there is a special Easter event. Where they are selling Easter themed decorations, which is open from 23rd March to 15th April on Thursday to Sundays at 10am to 5pm. If you enjoy seasonal events and are in the area, go and have a look!
The staff offer you a free tea or coffee for visiting, and yes they have soy milk!
Charming vintage style sign.
Selection of organic and handmade food products and teas.
Interesting sculpture made out of wood.
Fun and colourful artwork by Sarah Collins.
More artwork and an interesting table, which looked like a car or a tractor.
Unique items for sale.
Cute pillow by Sam Wilson, a luxury homeware brand inspired by the British Countryside. I really love this quirky print, its perfect for Easter.
There were lots of Humorous gifts in the store.
After visiting the gift fair, we went for lunch at the Oxscale restaurant in Church Street, Wheathampstead.
The inside of the restaurant was stunning and very riveting. We went in the restaurant just before lunch time, so it was really quiet. On the weekends the restaurant gets very busy.
I loved the bowler hat lights. What a fun and quintessentially British idea.
To drink, I ordered some Victorian Lemonade by Fentimans. They also sell a really good Rose Lemonade, which you can buy from most supermarkets in The U.K.
To eat, I ordered the mushroom bruschetta from the Vegetarian menu and a side of Garlic and Thyme fries. The food was really delicious and the service was fast.
I really liked this duck clip! I’d love to have one of these.
After lunch, we went for a walk. There was a wedding being held at the church.
I bought some Lavender/ Detox bath salts by Park Beauty. Park Beauty is a skincare brand and salon based in Redbourn in Hertfordshire . I really liked this hand drawn flyer by Sarah Collins, which has inspired me to paint again.
Thank you, see you soon.
