Dig out your Old Shopping Bags
An annual feature of the Cornwall Christmas Fair has been the limited edition jute shopping bags, sponsored by Lillicrap Chilcott and designed in recent years by fair stalwart Cream Cornwall. In the spirit of reuse and recycling, visitors to this year’s Cornwall Christmas Fair are being asked to bring along a favourite vintage Cornwall Christmas Fair shopping bag. All those sporting an old bag at the event will be entered into a prize draw.
