Where to Find Us and New Additions

Hi there!

Yes, it's been a while. It's been all go-go-go here for the past few months, but we're back.

Just wanted to let you all know where you can now check out CelticMoon Craft's latest offerings on a regular basis at the weekends.

One of the brand new 'still life' wall hanging blocks we have just started doing. 
They range from sunflowers, to roses, tulips and hydrangeas on a square wooden block. 
Perfect for brightening up any room, as you can see with this bright and cheery composition.

We're very pleased to announce that we are now selling our crafts in Manorhamilton in Co. Leitrim every Friday at the Manorhamilton farmers' market, located in the car park area at the Bee Park Community Centre, from 10 a.m. til 2 p.m.

On Saturdays, we have a lovely marquee and stall at the nearly one-year-old (and very cool) Ben Bulben Craft Market, in Rathcormac, in north Sligo.The Ben Bulben Craft Village is open every day, while the craft and farmers' market is open on Saturdays, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., with extended hours in the summer,, open til 3:30 p.m.. While you're there, why not stop in for a cup of coffee, tea or a tasty bite to eat if you've got the munchies, at the mellow and relaxing Vintage Lane Cafe, which is located right on site at the craft village.

Still more 'still life' wall hanging blocks. 
We've already sold quite a few, and have gotten requests for other coffee as well as tea designs, 
so there will definitely be more of these on offer, and we'll have even more variations on the coffee and tea 
and cafe themes in the coming weeks.

As always, we have county and town/city names on offer, 
right alongside our ever popular Celtic mandalas, our personalised kitchen plaques, 
children's room plaques, continually adding new names every week.
All handmade, hand-lettered and hand-painted...

In addition to this, we will be doing as many of the summer fairs, heritage festivals and agricultural shows as we can fit into our summer schedule. Stay tuned for more information on these in the coming weeks. So far, we've booked festivals in Carrick-on-Shannon and the Siamsa Sraide in Swinford, Co. Mayo,and we're always on the lookout for more fairs and festivals to be a part of, so if you know of any, or you yourself are an organiser of an event that features or includes crafts, please keep us in mind, and email us.

And now, to whet your appetite, we're very proud and delighted to show you a few of our brand new offerings that we've just begun creating and selling.

These beauties are glass pendants - not acrylic, not resin and not plastic, but real glass cabochons and glass tiles. Inside each one is an original and unique design we've created.

No two pendants are the same, as they are each one-off pieces, and we are continually adding new designs. Some being Celtic knot work patterns and spirals and triskeles, while many of them are very dreamscape-y and atmospheric, all in a wide range of colours and colour combinations for you to choose from.

The pendants come in a variety of shapes and sizes...from small squares and roundy ones, to rectangular shaped ones to large ovals, large square and round ones, as well as your choice of either metallic (silver plated, copper, bronze or black) chains or waxed linen cord. All very reasonably priced.

We've been very pleased with all the positive feedback we've received on these pendants, and very happy customers - including repeat customers who are now collecting these - so we've been busy making more and will continue to...possibly adding bracelets, earrings, rings and brooches as we go along. Why not stop by either or both markets at the weekends and pick one up as a treat for yourself, or as a lovely gift for a special someone?

ps - A special thanks goes out to our stall 'neighbour' at the Ben Bulben market, Joan, from designercardsdonegal, for taking these photos of our pendants and plaques for us to include for this blog post.
