This is the wonderful thing about Twitter and following bloggers, that you find out about all kinds of places, events and people that you may have otherwise never heard of. The brilliant Susie Bubble tweeted recently about Circus Eleven so off we went to investigate.
It was lovely. Set in the fantastic venue that is the Tramshed in Old St, East London, were several artisan / boutique stalls.
Here's the mental shopping list I compiled as I wandered...
Gorgeous reclaimed leather pendant from designer Lizzie Burns, check out the rest of her range here.
Reseeding brick, from Jail-Make. These guys produce truly unique products that you would be hard-pressed to find elsewhere. This brick is planted with a mixture of grasses, herbs and wild flowers, and can fit into gaps in walls, new builds, and anywhere else you happen to pop it. And this is only one of their amazing catalogue.
Stunning lightning bolt hand painted cashmere scarf from Silver Flint.
Thorody hand print beautiful, pared down geometric designs onto linen woven in Britain to produce fresh, earthy home furnishings and fabric. I fell in love with this upholstered nursing chair, now all I need is a flat of my own to put it in.
All this innovative design and creativity makes me proud to be British.
