Another craft fair I heard about through my friend Fliff Carr, a ceramicist. What I particularly liked about this fair, held in St Mary-the Virgin church, was the very wide variety of objects on show, not all from the UK.
Chelsea Town Hall is another great venue for craft fairs.
Unfortunately when we went to handmade In Britain 15, it was pouring and we got soaked just in the short walk from the bus stop.
There were lots of things I liked but by the time you’ve been married nigh on 60 years you have accumulated too many ‘things’ but I couldn’t resist this lovely silk scarf by the young Scottish designer, Taisir Gibreel – just what I needed to go with my new Roxy ski jacket
MADE, the Design and Craft Fair held this autumn 22-25 October at One Marylebone, NW1 4AQ, was full of a wide variety of items to suit every taste. I particularly liked Amanda Anderson’s Mosaics and Jeff Soan’s segmented animals but was tempted by something on almost every stand.
Great for early Christmas shopping – the MADE Spring Show April 29th to May 1st is due to be held in Bloomsbury.
Such a shame we no longer have C&A stores in the UK. Lots of good cheap clothes. As a schoolgirl in the 1940s, I bought all my dresses, blouses and skirts there – except for my school uniform of course.
