Here's of pic of the well deserved Winners of Best of Show!!
I met Simon from Iron Mitten blog, centre, he made me put the hat on. I did tell him
I've got a big head!
I was quite impressed with the new venue, lots of open space, with loads of room for more traders next year. I did miss the quirkiness of Crystal Palace I've gotta admit, but not the choline smell.

Well done guys, great show!
