Brighton Craftaganza Spring Market 24th March 2012

Had a really fun day selling the Little Things i Make at the Brighton Craftaganza Spring Market ( on Saturday!!!  The organizers had really gone to town with the promotion and basically took over the web! The social media scene was buzzing with #craftaganza updates ;-)  I had the same stall spot as I had at the Xmas Craftaganza market so I was even happier.  I really like being at a diagonal to the entrance and I had these great old pillars to hang my Tote Bags & Long Legged Monkey Bear's from.  Oh & I had my lovely crafty Mum with me in the morning = an extra special fair!

A few of the  Little Things i Make  with hand knitted scarves on there.  With the weather we're having, I may have to start making swimming costumes & sun hats...

These BRAND NEW!! Little Bunny Brooches were a BIG HIT! They're available to buy online but I will be making more to sell at Makers Boutique next Saturday (&th April).

My Long Legged Monkey Bear's also had a A LOT of interest. People seemed to really like the individual labels.  These are also available online:

THE VENUE: The Fabrica Gallery, Duke Street, Brighton.
It's a really great space for an art event.  The only thing is that there isn't an imposing main entrance like the Unitarian Church so people could walk past and not know that anything was happening inside.  Saying that, that wasn't the case for this Craftaganza!!! The team were outside with balloons, handing out flyers and inviting people in to not only check out the wonderful handmade goodies that Brighton has to offer but also partake in a yummy Baileys Hot Choc!  Luckily the weather was GLORIOUS so I doubt the team minded being outside much... :D
There are two lovely crafty locals on the left sharing a stall.  Jude Turner and her wonderful handmade button jewellery  the beautifully delicate silk hair ornaments & brooches of Emily Wright of . Check them out!!!

There's my MUM!!! Perusing the stalls...
Illuminated in the right hand corner is the lovely Sarah 'rockcake' Meredith - Check out her great new designs at (the 'Hello' necklace is a must have!)
All in all a great day! Not record sales but a lot of new contacts & great feedback. Thanks Craftaganza - I look forward to the next event!!!
Look at these CUTIES!!! These special hand sewn Long Legged Monky Bears are available to buy NOW! in my Etsy shop: 
Grab them while you still can as each one is unique & they were selling like hot cakes at Craftaganza last Saturday!!!

Here is a BRAND NEW!!! Foxy Face Brooch.  I JUST made it :) I'm going to make a few more of these little fox brooches and then I'm going to make some special EASTER BROOCHES.  Little Bunny Faces & Happy/Sad Egg Brooches...Pics to follow.

Long Legged Monkey Bears

I've had a lovely week making these adorable little chaps.  The sun has been out, Spring is in the air and I think it has made these Long Legged Monkey Bear's especially cheeky!  I'll be selling them at the upcoming Brighton Craftaganza Market on the 24th March 2012 & also online in my Etsy shop .  Each one will have it's own special individual Little Things Label.
