All the goodies i bought at the made in Thornbury market.
A belated post as we dashed off on holidays right after the market. But i didn't want you to miss out on seeing some of the fab purchases i made.
Firstly, an awesome selection of work by the talented cam from Curly pops.
I had been eyeing off the heart brooch with crazy stitching for some time, hoping it would wait for me to make some moula at my stall before heading on over to claim it.
Lucky for me, cam found things of mine she liked too so we traded, and I scored this huge flower of felt, vinyl and button, and the best bookmark in a bear in the woods print. Everything is so well made. You know I look over everything I buy with a fine tooth comb. Being of the crafty type, tis' my duty.........
and I tells yah, miss cam meets and exceeds all crafty expectations. Next time, I might have to invest in a funky tea towel apron too.
Next I got, well not really I, my little helper Kierah, found a huge covered button bookmark, from buttons by loulou, I'm a fan of Lou's work and have quite a few rings and ponytail holders from the range, so I had no qualms handing over the money there. Little girl Happy.
Of course there was the scrummy, cupcakes and gingerbread men consumed, which didn't last long enough to be photographed.......... the memories are all good though.
I also picked up some more hairpins. Can never have enough. Some ornate rings that I'll probably use as a backing for some vintage inspired rings, and the cutest hand felted owl in shades of yellow and green.
I did have to stop myself there, before I crossed the line of buying more than I sell.
But I look forward to the next one as I had my eyes on some of Cathy's tinnie's, one of felicity's fabric birds, and possibly a vintage inspired shower cap I saw.
So if your in the neighborhood, pop in to the next Made in Thornbury market on May 2nd, and support handmade.
