I am always super excited when I’m invited to a craft fair, so when Cluttercity said PinPinFinds could have a stall… well! I were over the moon!
I totally fell in love with the flyer too! The very talented Kate Seaward from I Like Pens did the illustrations for it, she used to run Cherry Cherry back in the days when I was making plush toys instead of jewellery!
My day started off with me packing everything into the boot of the car, once there I scurried about for what seemed like a decade! Was so glad to have my stall all up and looking nice. Of course, I’d forgotten to eat breakfast in my blind panic so nipped over to see friends Deerly Beloved Bakery for some yummy vegan sweet treats. (And yes, everything DOES taste as good as it looks!)
With whoopie pies, vegan pizza, cupcakes and all sorts of cake I was absolutely spoilt for choice! I finally managed to settle on a rather huge wedge of chocolate mint cake (with real sugared mint leaf decorations). A good way to get my sugar hit in for the morning!
I also saw Lady Lucks Boutique which I was really excited about. The hair flowers all looked incredible, and LLB has such a huge selection to choose from! If you’re not in Norwich you can always check out her rock n ready website: here
After all the dashing about it was nice to meet some PinPinFinds customers too! I’d never done a stall at Cluttercity before so I saw plenty of new faces. I was really lucky that my stall was in the bright foyer with the sunlight streaming in!
We’ve been very busy making flower necklaces and brooches the last week, these neon flowers are made with digital prints layered onto sustainable birch wood. We just love how the colours pop! Holes can be lasered into each piece so they can be attached together with junp rings to create stunning necklaces with real flower power.
For something simple and sweet, we add a brooch back so you can pin a single posy to your spring jacket!
We’ll be working on a range of bracelets and rings too, so you can adorn yourself in these pretty blossoms. Our neon flower range will be available in May, so keep your eyes peeled for our launch!
I am absolutely hooked on PiP Studio and have finally found my fix of PiP Products in the UK! I’ve seen the PiP crockery, wallpaper and bags on lots of other sites, but this site is by far the cheapest, and they send stuff SO quickly! Check them out here: Love Vintage Craft
Not only that, they also stock a whole range of gorgeous gifts, cute toys and other products with a vintage / handmade vibe. Their blog is a treasure trove of information on how to make the most out of Christmas gift-gicing, how to syle your wardrobe and interior design ideas too. Love it!
I’m also hungry to get some fabric from them, they do Tula Pink, Kaffee Fassett and Amy Butler fabrics which are perfect for patchwork, but are also stunning patterns to make into clothing. They do ribbons, trimming and all sorts of lovely things in their haberdashery section. If you’re handmade crazy you will absolutely love this site!
I absolutely adorable loud, brash, blingy jewellery that will catch your eye and your imagination too. Lately I’ve been searching for some totally tropical finds because, let’s face it, the UK is more like a tropical rain forest at the moment instead of the glorious sunny island it used to be, so I’ve been sitting in my studio making some tropical jewellery to brighten your day. Think parrots, flowers and butterflies!
Be mucking about with printed acrylic charms too and came up with a range of laser cut butterflies, aren’t they sweet?
It’s almost Norwich Makers Market again, and it’s going to be a great opportunity to showcase this tropical range, and to see all of the wonderful local indie retailers who sell everything from cupcakes to homeware! You should definately come along if you can make it, so watch out for all the updates here: facebook.com/PinPinFinds
