Locals turned up in droves to support local small businesses at West Kilbride’s annual Christmas Craft Fair last weekend.

With 32 stalls set up shop in The Barony Centre across November 19 and 20, the fair attracted many visitors who wanted to explore the variety of goods on offer such as crafts, food, housewares, toys, and art.

The fair’s organiser Eleanor Jolliffe said: “The West Kilbride Christmas Craft Fair was extremely well attended on both days and the stalls taking part included butcher, cakes, gingerbread houses, chocolate, jams & chutneys, as well as stained glass, various jewellery stalls, pottery, cloth bags, woodwork, teddies and other animals, mosaic items.

“We also had a lady from Ukraine who is staying with her sponsor and makes lovely leather jewellery with semiprecious stones and leather bracelets.

“The raffle prizes were all donated by stall holders and prize-winners have been notified to collect from The Barony Centre.”

With free entry and food from The Barony Café on offer, the fair has remained a popular attraction for everyone looking to support local businesses and start their Christmas shopping.

Visitors enjoyed their experience, with many taking to Facebook to comment on the fun they had.

One Facebook user said: “Really lovely show as always. A few more Christmas pressies purchased from your wonderful makers.”

Business owners also took to social media to express their thanks to the organisers and visitors.

Stall owner Clare Hamilton Sneddon said: “We had a super weekend. A huge thank you to all who bought from us, who chatted and complimented my work.”
