  • ​Thank you @belindadoyledesign, we totally agree! 💙
  • How amazing is this tea pot and mug from @pinched___ ☕ ​ ​​The reduction process used by Pinched by Nevena produces a range of effects on the outcome of the glazes and therefore each piece has a unique characteristic of its own with each firing! ​ ​​​We don't know about you, but we think there is nothing better than a nice cup of tea on a cold night 🥰
  • How lovely are these photos from our recent market! 📸 ​ ​We love how these photos really captured the spirit of our first market back after 2.5 years, it was such a great weekend. ​Head over to our Facebook page to view the entire album of photos! ​ ​We can't wait to do it all again in July 💙
  • Happy World Bee Day! 🐝 ​ ​World Bee Day celebrates and spreads awareness of the significance bees and other pollinators have for our ecosystem. ​@mayasunnyhoney has one aim, that ​from beehive to jar they want to share their unique goodness with you. ​ ​Maya Sunny Honey has created a system allowing bees to go into an empty glass jar and create their honeycomb. Each jar is a mini beehive sculptured by hundreds of worker bees creating an exceptional and unique honeycomb. How cool! ​🍯
  • ​We loved seeing @twicedesigns back at our most recent market, and we know you loved seeing them too! 💫 ​ ​Twice Designs is about second chances - recycling, recontextualising and relishing the incidental beauty of all manner of vintage design.  ​ ​Did you pick up any one-off vintage pieces from Twice Designs at our recent market? We would love to know!

  • One of our favourite things about markets? Being able to touch, feel, smell and taste the products before you buy them (maybe not smell or taste these though... 😂) ​ ​Our return to markets was even better than we expected, and we were so pleased to see all of our stallholders and customers return with just as much excitement and anticipation as us!  ​ ​We would love to know what you purchased at the market, let us know in the comments! 👇
