This is the time of year when we load up sacks of Loglike goodies onto the sleigh and visit different parts of the country for Christmas arts markets & fairs specialising in contemporary craft and design.

Last weekend was The Harley Gallery in Nottinghamshire (as featured in the Daily Telegraph ‘UK: Five of the best Christmas Shopping Destinations’.) Which was packed with visitors, quality contemporary craft, artisan food & Christmassy drink.
