Handmade Hong Kong Indie Arts and Craft Fair: In Review

I was privileged to secure a spot at the Handmade Hong Kong (HmHK) Indie Arts and Craft Fair in Discovery Bay on 24th November. HmHK have fairs throughout the year, and this was my 3rd since starting up Little Koo. I’m starting to get into the swing of it now, but the twins didn’t allow me much time to prepare for this one!

I really enjoyed the day. For a start the weather for the most part was surprisingly hot and sunny, even for Hong Kong! I got sunburned! There was a steady flow of people browsing the stalls, I had a good spot near one end of the fair and I was surrounded by other lovely sellers. The fair was supposed to last until 7pm but at a little after 5, the heavens opened and it started raining heavily and everyone had to pack their stalls up!

Here is my little stall. I was quite pleased with the setup this time:

One of my lovely friends joined me for most of the day to keep me company and she kindly manned the stall while I browsed the rest of the fair. There were so many great stalls selling unique and unusual products. Visitors to the craft fair were really spoiled for choice!

Here are some of my favourite stalls:

Puff Terrariums were at the stall next to mine, and attracted a lot of attention with their unique products

On The Move.Asia  had such cute lunchboxes!

Cap East sold unique and fun flip flops!

I didn’t catch the name of this man’s business, but his wooden animals were so beautiful

Thanks for reading!
