There was plenty on offer at Jordans Mill near Biggleswade at the weekend as crafters, foodies and families flocked to the annual Spring Fayre.
Stallholders lined the mill to sell their wares including jewellery, clothes, homemade gifts and other crafty creations as well as food and drink.
Sabra Coling, from Sabracadabra Designs, said: “I really enjoyed it as there was a lovely atmosphere – stallholders and visitors were so friendly.
“It’s always nice to be able to talk to people about my button pictures and how it all began.
“I got two orders and lots of leaflets were taken with talk of new babies and weddings so fingers crossed for future orders,” she added.
Bridget Lewis, from Card Crush Greetings, also had a stall at the event. She said: “This is the first time that I have done the Jordans Mill Fayre and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
“As an online business, this was a fantastic opportunity for me to display the products I sell and see the reactions of people viewing my stall. It was also a great opportunity to meet and chat with other local businesses.

“I wasn’t able to take all of my products so I decided on a selection of greeting cards with Father’s Day on June 19 in mind, a variety of wrapping paper and packs of note cards.
“I am busy planning gift wrapping workshops too so this was a great chance to promote them and see what people wanted to learn.
“There was a fantastic atmosphere and a good variety of different stalls so hopefully people who visited enjoyed it too,” Bridget said.
A Jordans Mill spokeswoman said: “This year’s Spring Fayre proved to be bigger and better than before with people coming through the doors to browse the stalls or relax on the riverside terrace in the sunshine, while the little ones had great fun having their faces painted and being tattooed with glitter.
“The fayre attracts a wide range of businesses from Biggleswade, Sandy, Potton and the surrounding villages with local people coming out in force to support this popular annual event.”
