The debut of the festival, which the shop hopes will become a yearly event, raised £82 for Haddenham First Responders through competitions and games including lucky straws, piñatas and a prize for the funkiest pair of wellies worn.

“It was really brilliant,” said Juliet Browse, owner and founder of Spoilt Rotten Beads.

“We had more than 100 people come through the door on the day; some who had driven for up to two hours to get to us.

“We wanted to hold a festival because it’s something a little bit different.

“The customers had so much fun – there was a constant stream of people coming through.”

On the day, the shop gave out prizes including a henna tattoo, bottle of Pimms, a box of chocolate and a £25 gift card.

Among the day’s activities were a vintage Spoilt Rotten Beads campervan, bedouin tent with free drop-in workshops, Mardi Gras brick stitch bracelet workshop with Dizzy Di and micro macrame wraps workshop with Jo Barclay Loggie.

“We think it will become an annual event,” added Mrs Browse.

“Spoilt Rotten Beads has been in business for over 10 years and we are one of the UK’s favourite bead stores. We ship across the whole world and have won ‘best bead store’ twice in a national competition.”
