Before making the ultimately futile journey to a friend’s house to watch England crash out of the World Cup on Saturday, my wife and I passed by the Arts & Crafts Fair on Camberwell Green.
There were a number of stalls with… well, arts & crafts items. Not much for a man like myself, with simple tastes, but quite a few nice geegaws and trinkets for those of a more flamboyant bent, I’d imagine. I hope it was a success as I’d like to see the idea expand, to take on the aspects of the Camberwell Fair from days of yore. Failing that, to at least be a bit more like Greenwich market. Still, a good start and a decent turnout for it, so fingers crossed.
One thing I’d have liked to see more of would be food (no jokes please, from those that have met me); there was a cream tea shop, but a few stalls selling foods from the many cultures represented in our corner of the world would have been welcome. Or maybe I’m just saying that because I hadn’t had any breakfast.
