This Saturday I went on a road trip to Birmingham. It was the Christmas Craft Exhibition at the NEC. It took just under three hours to get there. I have never been before and could not believe how big it is. The queue of cars to get in the car park seemed endless, however once parked and paid £10 there was a bus to take me to the venue.
Once inside the venue I paid for my ticket which was priced at £11. So far I have paid £21 and not bought anything yet!!! This is obviously not going to be a cheap day out!
On entry into the venue there was a brass band playing Christmas songs and a display of white deers and baubles. I love Christmas songs and instantly I feel in the Christmas spirit.
|The first display.|
After a long journey a coffee was first on my list and then I went straight to the stall where they were giving massages. It was just what was needed after the long road trip and was actually a very good massage. Even if it is in full view of everybody, you should know that I am not shy!!

There was a Christmas Showcase of items and the corresponding number to show what each stall was selling or demonstrating however It was so packed that I just was taken along with the flow!!
There were some amazing stalls and beautiful pieces throughout the venue. I would had bought more but the entrance fee had taken its toll and there was not a cash point and some stalls do not take card which does limit quite a few purchases.
|I love the circus!!!|
I did however buy some crackers for Christmas and some glitter and spangles. There was something for everyone and for every budget. I even got some sausages for Pirate Mick!!
Looking amongst the stalls there was something for everyone, gifts, crafts, food, makeup and more!!
|I purchased these nail art pens|

I could not wait to try out the nail pens that I purchased from a stall.
I tried to put corsets on my nails. Not bad for the very first attempt and at the end of a very long day. What do you think?
