We’re in full Christmas swing now! The fairs are coming thick and fast and last weekend was definitely one of the highlights of the festive calendar. I was selling my wares among many of my favourite Brighton designers at the always kick ass Craftaganza.
There were so many wonderful familiar faces and new crafty friends to make and that’s just the sellers! We had some fine folk in a festive spirit visiting throughout the weekend as well, check out these lovely Christmassy ladies. They get a 10 for effort and cheer.
Here’s a peek at my set up this time, I had a whole table to myself which is a bit of a treat so I filled it with all sorts of goodies including some stocking filler badge sets and lucky dip bags, good old Elfis and my new Troll foil prints who went down a treat. It seems everyone who I got to chat to has a little collection of troll dolls from their youth hiding up in the loft! I think I might be responsible for a shiny troll army about to take over Brighton though. My bad!
Here are some of my favourite sellers from the Sunday, I was unfortunatly too busy nattering and drinking mulled wine on Saturday to manage to get out and take some pictures.
I love Mooshpie’s cute little screen printed and hand embroidered bits and bobs. Their rosy little pink cheeks are so lovely and cosy, perfect for popping on the wall of your snug house in winter! She is a true master of the elusive gocco printer.
Now here was a stall you could spend hours poking through and find so many interesting treasures. Who doesn’t love a big old button collection and there were some gems here, especially ones with all the holes drilled for you to embroider your own designs on them, so clever!
Sarah was my neighbour for the weekend so I had plenty of time to lust over her beautiful silver and gold jewellery featuring cute little critter kings with their shiny crowns and clever laser cut wooden and acrylic brooches. I decided that I want them all in the end!
Maria was there selling to most beautiful handmade creature cushions, the foxes and greyhounds were my favourite, they looked so sly with their long pointy noses. The detailing on them was wonderful as well like the sparkly fabric she used for the eyes which gave them such a mischievous twinkle!
Lastly, who could resist these guys! So many bright and bold colours and personalities. There was even one with a little gobble of his own, puppets with puppets – genius!
So that’s Craftaganza done for this year. Huge thanks to the wonderful Zoe and her merry helpers Sarah and Kirstin, it was a blast as always! And I’ll be selling this coming weekend, with Suki Price at Art Junky in the Phoenix Gallery Brighton…come on over for more Christmas crafty shopping.
