SWORDS, clocks and silverware were among the goods on offer at the country fair held in Saffron Walden Town Hall on Tuesday.

Shoppers had the chance to pick up collectibles, handmade jewellery, books and preserves as they meandered between stalls.

Organiser Sheila Crossman said: "These fairs are a good social occasion as well as offering the opportunity to pick up interesting items.

"There doesn't seem to be any logic to how many people come along - even on a cold day like today, there is a good crowd here.

"We have a lot of regular visitors, and I'd say that two-thirds of the stalls are here every time, and the remaining third change from fair to fair. It's just a nice mix of nice things really."

Entry to the fair is always free, and the sociable occasions always have a range of cards, craft items, knitwear and bric-a-brac on offer.

The next country fair will take place on February 20, upstairs in the town hall. If you would like to enquire about holding a stall at the fair, contact Sheila Crossman on 01245 361235.
