Meet the stallholders...Christmas Shopping with Crown and Glory

Just look at these wonderful headbands - all made by Sophie King from Crown and Glory. She is coming all the way from Cornwall so make sure you pop along and say hi - and buy some of her amazing designs on Sunday 20th.

Hello Sophie, tell us about what you sell and your inspiration. 

Crown & Glory was born in 2010 from my absolute obsession with hair accessories. From whimsical floral garlands to rockabilly pin up sets and everything in between, Crown and Glory's mission is to add that unique, finishing touch to every outfit. Each piece is lovingly designed and handmade by me, in low product runs, and available on a variety of attachments - combs, headbands, hairclips - to ensure you have a bespoke experience.

What is your most value-for-money item and what is your favourite?

Our fair exclusive, Build Your Own Bobby Pin Set, is a great pocket money feature. My favourite item to date is The Tachinator - a glitter mustache fascinator, from which we're donating 25% of profits from the sale of this item direct to Movember throughout November.

What are your top three tips for Christmas shopping/present giving?

This year I'm trying to give exclusively handmade gifts - either by myself or other wonderful sellers - the girls are easy, but I'm struggling to find stuff for my brand-name loving partner!

What is most darling about the South West in Winter? 

Wrapping up warm and going for a nice long walk in the country, stopping off at a lovely little fire-lit pub for a spot of lunch and working it off walking back again. Bliss!
