I love Selvedge magazine and came across their event posting a few weeks ago over on decor8. After some snooping, I just realized that they have a brick and mortar store right here in London! Needless to say I know what my Saturday plans will be! First stop will be the Selvedge Spring Fair! With Amy Butler as one of the show sponsors, you know this will be a good one. Featuring 30 handmade designers and makers exhibiting a selection of lovely treats!

Sometimes I think I should have just moved to Bethnal Green since I seem to be there every weekend and this Saturday will be no different. My second stop of the day will be at the Designers Makers Market. This Saturday kicks off their weekly market showcasing 50+ designers and makers working with various mediums including ceramics, paper goods and textiles.
