The Wee Fair returns

When we made the difficult decision to end our involvement in the Wee Fair in Tyninghame Village Hall to concentrate on other projects, we thought the fair would come to an end. However, the community of makers who have taken part in the Wee Fair over the years did not want it to end …

Great news! The Wee Fair WILL return to Tyninghame on the last Sunday of each month from March.

Debra from Lelie Children’s Designs has run the MADE stall as a volunteer for the past few years. She’ll now increase her role to co-ordinate and promote the Wee Fair with the support of other makers.

All enquiries and bookings for the markets will now be handled by Debra, made.wee.fair@gmail.com.
