  1. There seems to be something exciting going on in Hebden Bridge every weekend ... festivals, parades, workshops, exhibitions ... it really is an inspiring place to be. I will be trading here again tomorrow, 30th of June, weather permitting.

    We also met fellow boat trader Crafts Afloat and will be trading with them and some other local craftspeople over the weekend of the 6th and 7th June when the legendary "Hand Made Parade" takes place.

    Crafts Afloat not only sells exquisite handmade glass jewellry, but also offers a range of craft workshops and parties on board "The Crafty Snail" narrowboat.

  2. .Well, yesterday saw the launch of my new "Taste the World" exotic spice and herb blends ... each 60ml jar containing a burst of GMO free, non-irradiated flavour from far off lands, bringing the world to your kitchen. 

    I will be adding more but currently have; 


    Warm, floral flavours of North Africa in Ras El Hanout,
    Fragrant Harissa Spice from Tunisia, 
    Punchy Cajun Spice from Louisiana, 
    Hot but mellow Jamaican Goat Curry spices (equally good with lamb and veg), 
    Birmingham / Pakistani fusion flavours of Balti Spices
    Desert flavours of Arabian Z'atar
    Eye-wateringly hot Jerk Seasoning, marrying the flavours of Africa and the Caribbean, 
    And a fragrant taste of summer in the Thai Stir Fry blend

  3. I am a member of a wonderful organisation called The Roving Canal Traders Association. Members sell all sorts of things; crafts, artwork, homebrew equipment, hand-made jewellry, candles, sweets, pens, antiques, boating equipment, teas, cakes  ... the list is endless .... oh, and HERBS and SPICES of course!!

    They support all of us who trade on the canals and rivers, and have, in recent years, started to organise Floating Markets around the canal system.

    It is no mean feat to get a group of boats in one place at the same time, and the next Floating Market will be at Burton On Trent over the late May bank holiday. If you are in the area, take a look .... you will certainly find something of interest.

    There is a link to the website on the poster.

    Meanwhile, I hope to be trading in Hebden Bridge over the Bank Holiday weekend ... watch this space!!
