Our Christmas Pop-Up Extravaganza

Our first Christmas Pop-Up event has been and gone. And all the early starts and late nights have all paid off. Right to the run up to the event, we were still busy rushing around handing out flyers and getting as many people to come to it. Pushing our lovely bikes by Creea around London Bridge, to drum up attention! We were very grateful for the turn out and happy that we were able to create a platform for a variety of designers and makers to showcase their work at this event. A big thanks to Adam and Mik from Creea, who created such gorgeous Christmas decorations and dressed our arch space. And also a big thank you to Dave Walters for creating the '80s film extravaganza! Here are some piccies from the 2 days...We'd love to hear your feedback, so do feel free to comment. Thanks everyone! x

Christmas Pop-Up Market Blog!

Hey! We managed to complete Our Christmas Pop-Up Market Blog! Please check it out, and do give us feedback.
We've set up the blog especially for this event happening on 9th/10th December. This blog showcases all the exhibitors who will be taking part this year, to give you a taster of what to expect. This is our first pop-up event, so it's pretty exciting! We have a great eclectic mix of designers and makers all under one railway arch. It would be great if you could make it, for a mince pie and a mulled wine!

A tale of two cities

These brilliant illustrations, created by french graphic designer Vahram Muratyan made me smile. Muratyan illustrates the differences between the Paris and New York in a quirky and humourous way.

Allo Allo Design Sponge!

We are really pleased that Design Sponge decided to feature Our Shop. All the bright and cheery things to brighten up this chilly weather, such as the London Tray and handmade bowls. We are also in love with the french tea towels by Darling Clementine. I have the Ooh La La one framed in my bathroom! The little wooden pin badges are a great gift for someone you think deserves a medal, they are handmade and painted by Lost at Sea. Big thanks to Grace for deciding to feature us. It's great to get so many lovely comments, and from across the globe too!

Sunny Stockholm

We took a little trip to sunny Stockholm last week, which was lovely! Full of design inspiration everywhere. Stayed in a cute hotel called Story Hotel. Very relaxed and eclectic, each room was decorated differently. Rooms had limited edition art posters plastered on the walls, which was called ' WonderWall' showcasing local artists and photographer's works, in which people who stayed at the hotel could buy. So quirky, that even my bed headboard was made out of an old door! The city was full of old and modern quirks, and scandinavian charm.

Maps

Found this interesting book of illustrations, Maps. This is no ordinary book of maps. Maps illustrated by Nigel Peake is crammed full of aerial views of fields, paths, forests, blocks, places etc. I love the illustrations, they're so intricate, yet so simple at the same time. Check it out.
