The shop filled up quite rapidly, and Andrew was the perfect host, filling up the glasses of bubbly. They have a lot more room in the shop on Lion Street, including an alcove off to one side for clothes, with a changing room.
One lady was taking the opportunity to buy a Diamond Wedding gift for a friend, by buying a cotton Eighteen Rabbit bag and filling it with soap and body cream and other small gifts, all wrapped in orange paper.
They also sell jewellery (some of it recycled from bullets), rugs, pottery, Mexican mirrors, wooden toys, and even a few books.

You really can't miss the Fairtrade presence in the middle of Hay now!
Eighteen Rabbit started off as a pop-up shop at Hay Castle, and stayed. Now they've moved down to Lion Street, to a bigger shop. This used to be Lion Antiques until a couple of weeks ago, when the antique dealers retired.

I was in Hereford over the weekend, where I bumped into someone I knew at All Saints Church. Martha of Love Zimbabwe was there, with her Fairtrade goods, enjoying the busy atmosphere of the town centre. She said she's already booked to be back in Hay for the Christmas Fair!
