Due to the massive hike in prices (again) by Royal Mail we have taken the difficult decision to change from first class to second class post for dispatched items.
We have absorbed these increases year after year without passing on the extra cost to our customers!
Rather than increase the cost of our products we have decided to change from first class to second class post which will mean a slight delay (two days) before you receive your goods.
If you need an item urgently please let us know when you order and we will upgrade your order to first class post free of charge.
Thanks for your understanding.

Well the dates for this years Appleby Horse Fair have been released and agreed as Thursday 9th to Wednesday 15th June with the main days being Thursday 9th, Friday 10th, Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th. After the Sunday the fair winds down so not much to see!


Last years Appleby Horse Fair (2021) DVD is now available here on the website. 
A slightly different film for this year which includes my own work as well as Travellers's own video clips taken on their way to the fair. Due to COVID and concerns for my own health, I was only able to film on the road and very little at the fair itself. However after a request for help from my Traveller friends they rallied and sent in their video clips which made this years film and DVD possible and for that I will be eternally grateful.
