Crafty Christmas Markets in London

Just in case you are thinking of giving a few special hand-made pressies this year, here are some Christmas markets where you should definitely find some good stuff:

1) Probably the biggest and best crafty Christmas market in London:

This Sunday NOVEMBER 28, from 12pm to 6pm
York Hall, 5-15 Old Ford Road, London E2 9PJ
1 minute from Bethnal Green tube station

A few words from the organiser:
Shop at over 70 stalls of the hottest in handmade - the perfect place for unique gifts.       
Craft a Christmas bauble with The Make Lounge*, crochet a moustache with Prick Your Finger (1pm-3pm)**– plus pom-poms to Make and Do with Perri (4pm-6pm), a DIY Couture demonstration (3pm-4pm) and Fabrications Stitch and Tell.
Dance to DJs El Nino, My Ex-Boyfriend’s Records, She Runs With Wolves and Ci-Ci.   
Make merry! Tatty Devine bring a seasonal spectacle, Buttercupcakes host a tearoom  
serving soup and cake – plus enter to win a £100 Etsy shopping spree.
Goodie bags for the first 100, drinks all day, raffle and more…
Admission: £2 on the door.

2) On the first weekend in December I will share a stand with my friend Rebecca selling goods at the Art & Design Fair in Abney Hall in Stoke Newington:

We will be there on Saturday the 4th only (10 am to 5 pm), but the fair continues on Sunday the 5th (11am to 5pm). Busses stop outside Abney Hall (476, 73, 393) or take the London Overground to Stoke Newington station.

Entrance is free and over 25 Stalls will be selling unique jewellery, ceramic, prints and more. So come and join us!

3) And if you are still looking for the perfect gift:

Try the Christmas market organised by 'of cabbages & kings'. 
Saturday and Sunday: 18th and 19th of December between 11 am and 5 pm.
Also at the Abney Hall in Stoke Newington. 
Entrance is free and again there will be several stands selling hand-made goods. 
The talented Hanna Melin and her friends will be there too. Hanna sells super fun cassette tape brooches and her banana man is pretty famous. So also worth a look.

So you know where you will find me on the next few weekends. Have a lovely time yourself!
