Bust Craftacular 2013
I'm slowly working my way through my backlog of blog posts - apologies for the fact that some of these are kind of out of date! over Christmas I did lots of craft fairs - it's a super busy time of year for me as I spend weekdays making and packing up orders, and then every weekend is spent at craft fairs. I did some really awesome ones this year, and one of my favourites was the Bust Craftacular. held every year in York Hall in Bethnal Green, and always has such a great atmosphere with some pretty awesome sellers. below you can see some photos of some of my favourite sellers from the fair...
below are Ladybird Likes besties Home Slice Design - I used to work with both Steph and Ellie, the brains behind the brand, and they are totally awesome. so it's no surprise that the stuff they create is flipping amazing too! my favourites are the seaside town cushions - the first thing I buy when I have my own house is one of each of them!
I've known the oh so lovely Anna Wiscombe since I first started doing markets (nearly two years ago now, doesn't time fly!) her gorgeous designs never fail to make me smile - we have a set of five of her birds up in our dining room at home.
I picked up a business card from this super talented artist, but have somehow managed to lose it DOH. but I adored their range of hand illustrated ceramic pots in all different shapes and sizes - I spotted Rob Ryan buying several of them for his studio!
this was the first time I'd seen the jewellery from Lui Made It but I fell in love instantly - made from vintage stamps and old photo slides, I wanted to buy every single one and hang them all over my room! she had a really gorgeous display too, using printer trays and old books.
the lovely folk from Pygmy Cloud make the cutest whimsical plush toys and things for your home from hand stitched felt - I love the cloud coasters and mountain pillows in particular
hope you enjoyed my little round up of the fair - did anyone come to do their Christmas shopping at Bust at all? what was your favourite stall?
