Members of the crafting community came together to sell hand made gifts at the Hare Hatch Sheeplands garden centre's annual Christmas craft fair over the weekend.
People had the chance to get in some early Christmas shopping and buy products made by independent home-businesses at the fair, which was set up in a decorated marquee.
Items for sale included artisan fudge, Christmas cards, jewellery, knitted woolen trinkets and metal pots and pans painted in barge-style patterns.
Stallholder Anisa Aktar, who runs a business called Fabulous Fudge traveled from Staines for the two day fair.
She told the Advertiser: "It's nice to see homemade stuff and home crafters having a chance.
"They have competition from the big brands but it's nice to know people are interested."
Handmade card maker Rebecca Wood said: "We've been doing this for about three years.
"Everyone around here is usually friendly and helpful, it's a nice atmosphere."
