Valentines Fayre - Leeds Corn Exchange 08.02.14

On Saturday the 8th February 2014 I had a stall at the Valentines Fayre at the Corn Exchange in Leeds. I had never been to the Corn Exchange before even though I've been living in Leeds for 2 and a half years! I know right! It's a lovely building, I had no idea there were so many cute little shops in there.

I thought I'd share some photos from the day of my stall, the lovely cake lady next to me and some pretties of the building :) 

The Hidden Quirks stall.

Now onto the lovely lady next to me The Vintage Cake Fairy.
This stall was run by a lovely lady called Karen. She had some wonderful cakes, cupcakes and sweet treats to choose from so I thought I'd share them with you. I bought some cupcakes from her and trust me, they were absolutely delicious!! I had a lemon cupcake, but she also has chocolate and vanilla too. The housemates did enjoy those! :P

So that is most of the pictures I have from the Fayre. All I have to say now is a good day was had by all! And I want to send out a massive thankyou to everybody that bought something from my stall, made nice comments about my creations, took a business card, and especially to everybody that is now reading this blog post!

Thankyou all so much!
May the craft fairs keep on coming :)

I'm starting a blog!

Hello my lovelies, and welcome to my first ever blog post! 

I'll take my first post to introduce myself. My name is Hayley , I'm a Yorkshire gal and I am currently 21 and in my third year at the University of Leeds studying Mathematics. I obviously love to craft, and when people find out I study maths, sometimes they are quite surprised :P 

I love all types of crafting, especially papercrafts and obviously making jewellery :) I just love being creative and learning new skills. I also want to learn to knit and crochet, but in between all of my Uni work and making things for Hidden Quirks, I just don't have enough hours in a day to learn properly, so I'm waiting until I can have a proper go at it.

I realise that my posts probably won't get seen by many people in the early days, probably just me and my mum :p but everybody has to start somewhere :) 

So here I am, Hayley, the owner of Hidden Quirks :) Feel free to ask me any questions and let me know what you think :) You could also let me know what you'd like to see on this blog, tutorials, more things about me, featured products, things I get up too in a day, etc. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated :) 

You can visit my facebook page over at 
to see everything I make, and maybe you could pop over and give my page a like , leave a cheeky comment and tell me you came from my blog :)
