I took this quick snap of the window at Urban Folk….I like the slight reflection in the glass, making it all seem rather ethereal. Spot the cushion I just took in there – in this amazing, nicely weighted Japanese cotton fabric by Koko Seki. These bright pastels are just the thing for Spring and bang on interiors trend! There’s another inside the shop in a different colourway too.
Visit Lauren Hill’s lovely shop, Urban Folk, Grope Lane, Shrewsbury, Shropshire SY1. Open Monday to Saturday.
Lovely and bright, this flowery horse is now for sale in my Etsy shop!
I might be feeling the Spring thing a little early, but this warm sunshine sure makes me feel happy! I’ve started listing some lovely new products online here – https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/TheWhistlingCowgirl?ref=si_shop – and am busy sewing for my first Made in Shropshire market of the year, next Saturday in Ludlow, from 9am-5pm. It’s in the town centre, just off the main market in the square. I shall be bringing my new spring collection of fresh, flowery goodies to celebrate the start (we hope) of a lovely, sunny, warm year ahead!
I can’t believe that the last event of my craft year is coming up this Saturday. Where has the time gone? So, last chance to shop! This Saturday, the 21st December, in Shrewsbury Town Square, it’s the fabulous Chronicle Christmas Market, featuring around 50 stalls of lovely craft and gorgeous produce…When it starts to go dark it’s a lovely, twinkly and atmospheric place to be, so I hope to see you there! From 10am-6pm!
Just a quick note to remind you to pop along to the last Vintage Escapades of the year, this Sunday, the 8th December. That’s at Woore Victory Hall, Woore, Cheshire, from 10am-4pm, for festive shopping and fun!
Do come and spend the day at Audlem tomorrow, Sunday 17th November. As well as the Handmade Boutique, you can browse the local shops too. Details and times are on this gorgeous flyer and instructions how to get there are on the map. See you there!
Here’s all the details you need for two splendid events this weekend! I’m going to be at both and am greatly looking forward to them! Are you coming? First up it’s Crafty Vintage at Bishops Castle on Saturday 2nd November, then Vintage Escapades on Sunday the 3rd. I’m trying to find the poster nestling about somewhere on my computer, but I can’t. I’ll find it later and upload it. Anyway, the event is 10am – 4pm as usual, at Woore Victory Hall, Woore, Cheshire, so come along and start your seasonal shopping!
You can now reorganise your Folksy shop better and add easily viewed collections…it has a lovely, fresh look that is gradually being rolled out across the site. Check back for a whole lot of new listings next week!
