Brendan cycled down and had a whistle stop tour – I went with my friend Catherine from Cat Amongst the Pigeons – and spent the entire afternoon there!
Covering 3 floors of this enormous pub were over 40 amazing market stalls so there was a lot to see! Luckily we could have a nice cup of tea and a sit down at The Teas Knees on the 2nd floor : )
Lovely wares from Deborah Ballinger Illustration on the left (sorry about the dodgy phone photos) – and also in this section was some brilliant crockery from Jimbobart – didn’t manage to take any photos but here’s his flyer (he also illustrated the Crafty Fox flyer above):
Check out the limited edition things he did for Amnesty International – “Amnes-tea and biscuits” plates : ) Looks like you can still get your hands on one from Culture Label.
My main aim was to get a Sailing boat brooch from Custom Made – and it’s still happily sailing across my top a week later : )
A very cute Penguin from Pygmy Cloud followed me home…. and is sitting on my desk…helping me work…..he’s very clever : )
These lovely buttons made from vintage material by iwishiwasa were hiding in amongst all her amazing dressing up stuff for kids…to add to my button collection….
There were so many great stalls – and not enough time to look at them all! (esp. when you chat and have cream teas for 2 hours…)
It was nice to see lots of friendly faces from all the other markets that we’ve done inc: Eightbear, Alice Shields Ceramics, Anna Wiscombe, Birds in Hats, me me me, House of Ismay, Lucie Ellen (loving the new space range!) and AvaRea17 – and lots of new stalls to discover….
Have a look at the Crafty Fox full list of all the stall holders here (there were different stalls on the Sunday too): Stall List
We also spent faaaaar too long photographing the amazing lights in the Ladies……
