Contacts: Claire Montgomery

Hello, My name is Claire Montgomery, I live in Brighton by the sea with a black cat called Buddy and have a slight obsession with penguins! I am a designer, and regularly take part in craft and makers fairs in Sussex, Brighton and London. 

I launched The Fairy Tale Fair in summer 2012. As a maker and designer myself I had already taken part in a few craft fairs in Brighton, but felt there was a lack of family friendly community fairs. I set The Fairy Tale Fair up to appeal to those families looking for a great day out, and to support the local maker and designers by providing an affordable fair to take part in and hopefully gain lots of sales and new customers. 

Since then the fairs have grown from strength to strength but we still hold these core values.

We are very much looking forward to our Easter fairs this Spring in Patcham and Brighton, and look forward to welcoming our regulars as well as lots of new faces!
