Unique and bespoke millinery and hair accessories

Two by Two

I’m a little bit nervous. I foolishly agreed to do two fairs this weekend. Yes, two days in a row, setting up and taking down my stand and beautifully displayed stock, all day spent on my feet…….I feel tired just thinking about it!

I’ve been busy making new stock, finalising new designs, and juggling two current bridal commissions and two orders from stockists! (It’s all coming in pairs at the moment)

montageAbove are two bridal pieces, made with vintage diamante and marcasite jewellery. The design is developed from a commission I did recently for a bride to be.

So, on Saturday I will be at the monthly Vintage & Handmade Market at the Mauritania, Bristol. I share a pitch with my local vintage shop Strangeness and Charm Vintage Boutique and will have some lovely authentic vintage clothes and accessories, alongside my handmade hair accessories.

Then on Sunday I will be further up the road at Goldbrick House for the Chosen Wedding Fair run by the deliciously named Kiki. I’ve had a peek at the list of other stall holders and it is going to be divine! I will also have a selection of authentic vintage wedding dresses and accessories, again courtesy of Strangeness and Charm.

If you’re in Bristol this weekend do stop by to say hi! There will be lots of vintage and handmade delights, all original and unique, and a great opportunity to meet makers and commission something special. I also enjoy the chance to talk to other makers, and connect with customers, getting valuable feedback on my designs and products.
