Birmingham Spring Market – Part 1 Crafts

Hello everyone,

Today I thought I would give you a break from my haul posts (there are still a few to come yet!) and give you a review on a food/craft event I attended on Saturday in Brum.

This was the first Birmingham Spring Market, and I do hope they do more as it was a fab afternoon out. It was based down on Fazeley Street in Digbeth, which is fast becoming a mecca for street food.

Entrance was £1 and there were various food and craft stalls on offer to peruse, of which I did a lot of, along with making a few purchases (my No spend April is not going well!) and eating!

I first had a look around the craft stalls and came across this lovely stall by Melissa Smith Textiles

This lovely ladies designs start of as a sketch and then digitally edited and then professional printed on to organic cotton.

I purchased this print on 3 items:

I brought a pillow, a notebook and a large make up bag. I just couldn’t resist the lovely bright design and colours!

My next none food purchase was from Gosia Weber handmade – it was beautiful purple suede pencil-case – however, I won’t be using it as a pencil-case, it’s too pretty – need to keep it away from water too as it is the softest suede ever!

so soft!

so soft!

I was really tempted with some of the handbags she had on display, but I had spent all my money by then! I will defiantly be making an appointment to go and see her at her workshop soon!

My next post – should be up tomorrow – will be about the amazing food I consumed at this fantastic market.
