its definitely that time of year – pop up xmas sales – its all the rage; i went to the remodelista one yesterday which was held at the new craftsman shop- lots of beautiful gifts to buy, very individual and of a high quality – they make for special gifts. you can visit the shop even thought the event is over and see their lovely products. a few of the merchants that showed there will also be showing at the hand sale in portobello next week as well as upstairs at fourth floor, so there will be an opportunity to buy again. we have extended our own sale in portobello to 2 days in portobello, so sunday 23rd November and monday 24th November. there will be jewellery gifts by Detail, printed cashmere scarves by Heti, porcelain night lights and hand thrown jugs by Jacqui Roche, gift bags of biscuits by Florence of Tart Bakery, hand made flower poms by pompomadore and of course my cards and some prints, and then on fri 28th November, i will be taking part in another sale – home 77 in primrose hill with a different set of interesting artisans. check out the Facebook pages for times and addresses.
