Its the last market before Christmas - its been so great to meet other cool designers. Last week I said hello to Cocoapod who does amazing botanical jewellery and J2aney. J2aney does these tiny charms that are so cute they make me feel panicky because I want to buy them all! The highlight of her collection being a miniature chocolate icecream that looks so real...they are seriously well made and the colours are gorgeous. I'm going to have to buy something this week!
We had a great time at the new Oxford St Markets this Saturday. If you didn't make it hopefully we'll see you before Christmas! The Market is just down the road from the cafe strip opposite Kailis on Saturdays from 9am- 5pm. They continue until March 28th and there will be lots of new makers also showing their work so support the designers on your doorstep by coming along and saying hello! Some of the designers from Made on the Left were also showing their amazing work.
Made on the Left team were also selling their lovingly handmade goodies. We shouldn't forget to support these local makers who are so important in adding variety to the marketplace usually so dominated by big brands - I bought all my Christmas pressies from the Made on the Left makers at the Distracted Market
If you haven't been to Angove St, North Perth then you haven't been to Milkd.... which means you haven't tasted the best coffee in Perth. There is also the very tasty "Flying Taco", S2, Ici et La and Trio. We can't recommend the Flying Taco enough you just have to try it!
and of course Little Design Horse shop!
My sister Liz designed these beautiful Dog T 's for us. She's a professional illustrator based in London whose work can be found in Libertys as well as many high street brands. She has also got many of her textile designs in Pumpkin Patch at the moment which she did for Little Design Horse Studio.
