I read somewhere that weekends are good for the soul and this was just about the perfect two days that one could ask for. Fantastic weather… handmade goods.. met EtsyUK… had drinks and good food with friends… explored new boroughs of London… bare legs and flip flops… just perfect.
The first 50 people through the door received a free tote bag from EtsyUK, so early Saturday morning, we headed off to Brixton to check out the Crafty Pop Up Market at the Dogstar, pub by night, handmade pop up event by day! Sound the trumpets, because we have found our people. An amazing selection of handmade goods plus plenty of DIY workshops and tasty treats over three fabulous levels of crafty goodness.
As I mentioned, we were there early for the bags, so it was still pretty quiet. Up on the third floor, the Etsy lounge was set up for people to enjoy some cocktails and learn how to cross stitch. Parul Arora, a London based designer and photographer who creates the most amazing limited edition ceramics was also on hand upstairs to talk about product photography.
Second floor was filled with more handmade goods such as Sweet View. I couldn’t choose which image I liked best! Can’t wait until we get the official “ok” that we are able to put stuff on the walls. * sigh * Why yes, we have been living here for almost 3 months now! * hint hint *

Back down to the first floor, this place was hopping! You can view more blog posts about the event (and probably better pics!) by these lovely bloggers urban75 | Take Courage | Katherine Hannaford.
