It's no secret that there are tons to do in London and this weekend especially was jam packed. With the warm weather and sunshine (I've been told not to get used to this since it isn't normal), it was a great day to be out and about. Our first stop was in Archway for the Selvedges Spring Fair.
Goodies in the store... you can visit their store in Archway or online to buy pretty handmade goods, haberdashery and craft books.
The Selvedge Spring Fair at St. Augustine's Church was one of the prettiest shows I have ever been to. Each vendor showcased an amazing selection of handmade goods like the adorable kitten tote I picked up from Charlotte Farmer * mew *.
Feeling all jazzed up and inspired from the Selvedge Spring Fair, we hopped back on the tube and headed to the Designers Makers Market in Bethnal Green.
We were stopped enroute to the event by a lady and her daughter who was looking for the market. We have found our people (and we look like locals)!
The Designers Makers Market takes place every Saturday until the end of September and it is free to attend. There was a different feel (not in a bad way) to this market then the Selvedge Spring Fair... more community like... maybe even first time sellers... displays were not as polished... less attendees so more vendor chit chat...
the little chill cafe.
