Meet our Christmas Fair Stallholders

All this week, we will be showcasing some of our lovely Christmas Fair stallholders. These stallholders below will be showcasing their wonderfully scented gifts and goodies at the fair this weekend!

Meet LillyBert Gifts

LillyBert Gifts continue to grow their reach and are returning the Delapré Abbey Christmas Fair for yet another year of festivities…

“Delapré Abbey has such a warmth to it, I love the atmosphere, historic ambiance and feel-good factor for visitors and traders alike, it’s a beautiful setting regardless of the weather, there’s a lot of mystical elements to the grounds. 

We did exceptionally well last year, and it was a really successful event. My greatest highlight was experiencing the fact that people still came out despite Covid-19 and Delapré organised it brilliantly, it was very well attended and a breath of fresh air.”

What guests can look forward to…

“A special favourite this year are the car perfumes, a hanging glass perfume bottle. I sell hundreds of these, so I’m really excited to show them this year as there are some new fragrances, we will also have testers for guests to look forward to. Another product that sells well is the ceramic domes. 

I’m looking forward to seeing all the visitors again and how happy they are because Christmas is on its way, it’s such a wonderful experience, I just can’t wait to see old and new faces.”

Meet Claire’s Heavenly Scents

Claire Pipkin of Claire’s Heavenly Scents returns to the fair, after experiencing a sell-out of stock last year…

“Last year’s Christmas fair at Delapré Abbey was so much fun, it was well organised. It was an amazingly busy weekend and I sold out of a lot of stock and I still have customers from the fair buying from me now. It’s one of my favourite fairs to attend as it has such an amazing atmosphere for traders and all in such a special setting, I’m really looking forward to being back in the magical Abbey. This Christmas I will have some new scents, electric wax burners, gift boxes and some great eco products too.”

Meet Grateful Hearts Candles

Grateful Hearts Candles – The Caring Candle Company are once again exhibiting their special products this weekend.

“Delapré Abbey is special for many reasons. It is a real community hub and local people make a huge effort to attend. The Christmas fair’s organisation is fabulous, and the surroundings are beautiful- a fantastic day out and great shopping experience with local small businesses.  

We had so much support and positive feedback last year. There is nothing like meeting customers in person and explaining with passion what it is that you make and sell. Meeting the public is fantastic and a huge part of why I do this. A huge highlight for me is customers coming back for repeat buys. 

We have a Christmas range of five different scents, each product named after a beloved Christmas carol. Our absolute best seller is our ‘Little Donkey’ range. This includes candles, reed diffusers, room perfume and wax melts. We will have our core range available too plus lots of pretty gift packaging and sets of products especially made for Christmas.”

Meet Lyss & Vay Candle co.

After a whirlwind of a year, Janene Francis, founder of Lyss & Vay Candle Co. cannot wait to bring family and friends together again for a festive celebration at our Christmas Fair…

What you can look forward to at our stall 

“We have brought out a range of Christmas scents, such as Mulled Wine and Winter Pine. We have also collaborated with a local artisan soap maker to feature in our ever popular Man-dle (masculine candle) gift sets. 

Our signature candles, wax melts and diffusers will also be available. The most popular of our scents for 2021 has been Dark Honey & Tobacco and Black Plum & Rhubarb. We will also have a range of Christmas gift sets. 

Our travel tins have also been very successful, they come in a set of four of our most popular scents and are a great way to sample a fragrance or to take away with you on holiday. All our candles are made by us using natural soy wax with fragrances that are free of synthetic additives. All of our products will be displayed with testers for customers to smell prior to purchasing.”

Why we’re excited to be at Delapré Abbey 

“We are a local independent candle company located in Northampton, we set up last year during lockdown and turned our passionate hobby into a business and we can’t wait to display our products at Delapré Abbey. It’s such a wonderful way for the local community to come together in the spirit of Christmas and to generate a great buzz after so many small businesses enduring a tough past couple of years.”
