Spent a good 3 hours at the Markit@FedSq (link) market on Sunday 29 May 11. Sounds like a long time huh (specially cos it was cold as...) well, there were a couple of reasons for that.
One: there was lots to see - homewares, jewellery, bags, clothes, handprinted fabric, stationery - a lot of handmade, creative goodness. Tempted to get a cloud-shaped mirror from Lightly, and some fabric from Ink & Spindle. Instead, I kept it simple - I bought earrings and a brooch.
Two: my friend AN had a stall there - Tu ware - and we hung out talking and selling her jewellery range (which were featured in an earlier Lifeinstyle post).
She gave me a mouse purse for helping out. These were made in Vietnam to support a friend of hers who helps disabled women find sewing work. Pretty impressive!
I love markets - wanna make stuff now :)
