Designers/Makers // London Markets

As we said in the previous post we were lucky enough to be invited down this month's Designers/Makers market at Old Spitalfields, we had a lovely time looking at all the stalls and purchasing a few things, I think it will be a regular market trip for both of us.

Beautiful antique and re-claimed chairs with seats woven in leather, satin ribbon and glow lace from Caned. I fell head over heels in love with the antique cruise liner recliner pictured above. Also the back story of why Rachael does chair caning and rush seating is lovely. 

We both fell in love with the Deborah's illustrations, they were delicate and so beautifully drawn. Deborah does excellent sets of temporary tattoos as well which we both very nearly took home. There are also excellent card sets which are much lovelier than anything you can find at high street card shops. Take a look at

Nicci purchased an excellent David Bowie print from Scout Editions. They had such a good selection of different prints, I was undecided about this beautiful polar bear print but I held back but it still in the back of my mind!

I had a little moment about I Am Acrylic being at the market, I already have one of the bird rings (pictured above) from when I went to Bestival a few years ago and it was lovely to see the stall again! Nicci was a little confused about how it was made but the handy guide they have on the table helped her out!

We are definitely jewellery fans at Fancy Full and we are both into rings in a big way, Dana Kidson had such a beautiful selection of rings and other jewellery, everything was beautifully crafted and generally lust inducing.

Mister Peebles does the loveliest and pretty amusing illustrations of animals. A personal fave for us both was this David Meowie print!

I spied this life affirming print at Lovely Jojo's and it made me might be the perfect print for a bathroom!?

Designers/ Makers is not only a monthly market but is also is an agency for contemporary design within the UK, they also sell some of their lovely members work through their website. If you want to check the market out then you can catch them at Spitalfields on the third Saturday of every month and they will be at the  Southbank Centre from 16th to 22nd December for their Christmas event.

Thanks for having us Designers/Makers!
