What’s new for June?
It’s exactly a month until the June Handmade Market! On Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th June, two pavilions at EPIC will be packed with gorgeous gifts, stylish homewares, fabulous fashion and delicious food from 10am until 4pm. As usual, we have some exciting new designers to add to the Handmade offering and here’s our pick of some of the new faces.
Our fashion offering will be enhanced by Mónica the Label, who has a vision of offering the modern, voluptuous woman an answer to her wardrobe woes. “I hope to increase confidence in extra curvaceous women by providing them with beautiful, well made garments which will make them look like well dressed, striking women“. This label is for the extra curvy woman who wants to flaunt her goddess-like curves in the latest trends. Monica makes all of the garments herself from pattern making through to the finished product and loves seeing the finished result on her happy customers.
