Day 3: Shopping with Small Businesses this Christmas

It’s easy at Christmas to go to a big retailer and do your gift shopping in one hit, but you can do something even better. You can get a unique present and support a small business. Twice a year I attend my local Dolly’s Vintage & Artisan Fair  these fairs this fair supports charity and has a lovely community atmosphere.  I picked a few of the wonderful stalls to share with you.

My New Fave 

I’m a big fan of My New Fave. They make the most adorable earrings, broaches and more. These suit a quirky and outgoing styles. I personally picked myself up a pin of a Lurcher/Greyhouse and I am in LOVE with it. It’s something I’ve never found before.

T’s Cutting & Crafts  

This is the first time I’ve met T’s and I’m so pleased I did. There are some brilliant pieces on this stall I particularly liked the, ‘too glam to give a damn’ pouch.

Frith Friends 

How cute is little Hector?! This is a wonderful shop and there is a definite love of foxes, which drew me to it. The stall also had some beautiful hand painted necklaces AND fairy dust necklaces.

Wonderland Leech 

These are adorable and I love all of them. It’s the first time I believe I’ve seen this stall. As well as these plushies there were some necklaces that were really original (also pictured) and hair clips.

Primrose & Mabel  

I’m obsessed with these notebooks. All of these designs are done by hand before being put on all the stationary you could ever love. Just me? Ok. Anyway these are truly beautiful and there are so many designs.

Buttercups & Beautiful Butterflies

I might be slightly biased because this is my Mum’s stall but look at these glasses, which are all hand decorated. I’ve seen how much time and effort goes into running a small business, hence while I want to support them.
