oct fair preview: the usual suspects!
We have a few regulars at reetsweet who appear now and again at our fairs, we consider these folk to be our vip's - and they represent the very best of handmade, and what reetsweet is all about! Let us introduce you to a few!...
Jil Smith is a very talented textiles artist, using beautiful vintage style fabrics with super cute handrawn characters, she creates homewares including cushions, decorations, badges and all kinds of fabric wonderment! Recently she has been delighted to get stocked in the mecca of all arts and crafts shops in leeds - at The Bowery, Headingley...she continues to sell out of many items at our fairs despite her ever growing amazing selections of stock!
Kayleigh O'Mara is a one-off! This adorable little lady has a quirky take on the world, illustrating in a sketchy, childlike style that is totally accessible and loveable and has some big fans! Badges, prints, cards - you name it - you can own a little bit of these cheerful, wistful little pieces for as little at £2 for the badges! And she tells me for October's fair she has some new works! Woop!
Heather Dobson has a knitting obsession! If you have a wee one in the family, or just like me, love a nice toy that takes you back to your childhood then you need to make a beeline for this lady's stall! She sold out of many of the 'Amigurumi' she creates last fair - you can buy cuddly toys and toy rattles as well and they are made with such attention to detail and love!
You will find all these amazing folk - and more, at our next fair October 1st and 2nd at Leeds Corn Exchange! x
