Craft Fair Companies
Back to the top
The company formed in the summer of 2006 by Graham & Tracey from Oyster Stamps, Dai & Della from The Craft Bug and Tina & Andrew from Cranberry Card Co.  Tina & Andrew left Sincerely Yours in late 2006 as they wanted to explore the wholesale side of the craft market.   The whole idea of Sincerely Yours was to bring together Craft Companies and Crafters for a fun filled,  local Paper Crafting show, often in a craft show starved area, without the high costs of attending one of the "bigger" shows. This is why when they approach a new venue, they insist that they are able to provide pre-booked customers with free Tea & Coffee.

They organise 15 shows a year and they are always good fun with a great mix of friendly exhibitors.

We at Scrapbook Getaways attends these events when they are in Portsmouth.
