{Our lovely stall.}

I used to love to play shops with my sisters when we were young... and my favourite thing was to be the 'shop lady'... so here I am, with my dear friend Katie fulfilling a little childhood dream in a way. :)

Fortunately our things seem to compliment one another quite well, so sharing a table works and we have fun along the way. 

It was a lovely morning setting up and meeting some of the other crafters. We were in the village square right on the high street on a busy Saturday in Kings Heath, but it did surprise me, that despite the crowds - how few people wandered over to have a mooch round the stalls. It's so great when people are willing to support local artists, crafters and businesses. Unlike the mountains of tat and cheap imitations found on the high street, what we sell is good quality, unique & lovingly handmade products. So make sure you look up any markets or fairs that are happening near you and spend your money there instead. (Or look them up on etsy or folksy websites!)

Thank you to those who did come and say hi and purchased too! We appreciate your support.

This particular market is fairly new, so may take a bit of time to get going and for the word to spread... but it's a good start and I'm happy to be apart of it. We're hoping to attend some more especially in the run up to Christmas... so watch this space. 



p.s. We both sell online too...
