‘There’s some fab stuff to tempt visitors – from the ice-cold cool to timeless classics. Retro and handmade clothes, jewelry and handbags vie for attention alongside modernist-style radios, twentieth century furniture (Barcelona chair anyone?) and one-off homewares.’ There’s also always really nice food and some great pubs. Woodbridge is a gorgeous little market town and worth a visit anyway.
Now in it’s second year, the Made In The Shade Springtime Jamboree is a vintage-themed market with the best of both the craft and vintage worlds.
This month, it’s making it’s Edinburgh debut, setting up shop in the Roxy Art House, a 19th century refurbished church in the picturesque Old Town.
From 10.30am til 5pm on Saturday 15th May, you can shop til you drop (to a vintage soundtrack) from 40 vendors, including All Things Original’s very own Miso Funky, Clare Nicolson and Dazed Dorothy. There’s homewares, jewellery, art, clothing, accessories, stationery, vintage notions – a great mixture of indie designers with something for everyone.
Entry costs just £1 and as well as the shopping, there’s a pop-up cake lounge, live music and a chance to get involved in some crafting yourself. It’s a great day out, so if you’re in Scotland’s capital this Saturday, make sure you don’t miss out!
Charlotte will be at stand B14 for both two days, selling a range of homewares and coffee-related items, including coffee cosies, tea cosies, tea towels, and other exciting homewares.
The event will have a wide array of stalls in a huge 60 metre marquee in the centre of Bath, so even if it rains it will still be a fun event! Admission is free, and there will be lots of lovely coffee-related stalls, food stands, and demonstrations from celebrity chefs and award winning baristas!
Charlotte told us she’s very excited about the festival and is currently busying away making stock to adorn her stall. She’s hoping to see lots of friendly faces there over the weekend, so if you are in the area pop over to stand B14 and say hello :)

It’s been hard to get anything done this week what with a combination of broken computers and food poisoning. But I’m over the food poisoning now and have invested in a gorgeous new iMac that’s solved all my technology-related problems. Turning to more creative things, though, I also visited Origin 2 for a final dose of some more fabulous UK designers and, as promised, here are a few of my favourites to share with you.
Origin has to be one of my favourite events of the year. Origin is a fabulous craft fair set over two weeks set within the beautiful Somerset House with over 300 great designers featured over the space of two weeks. Everything is there under one roof including ceramics, glass, jewellery, furniture and textiles. It’s a great place not only to meet designers and see what’s new in British contemporary design but also a great place to do a bit of Christmas shopping!
I now can’t wait until next week to visit Origin 2, meet some more designers and oogle over their lovely things!
Some of my personal faves from the show include:
They have recreated their studio in the Newburgh Quarter, London. They had some fabulous work for sale there too as well as free workshops! Unfortunately it was only open for a week and so is now finished, but you can see all of their work on their website or etsy shop.
The shop stocks a huge range of the cult cameras and accessories and the very friendly owner Adam Scott was more than happy to help me choose everything I needed :)
Lomography is all about experimenting and not following any rules. Photos are often blurry, over saturated and very much represent their “Don’t Think, Just Shoot” motto.
So I walked away with a new Diana F+ with various new lenses and I cant wait to get started.
The shop is also going to host some ‘how to’ seminars soon as well as talks on the history of the camera. So I’ll be returning for some new tricks but in the meantime it’s time to get shooting!

Im really looking forward to Tent London which will be taking place a the Old Truman Brewery in London from the 24th September – 27th September.
It’s a definite date for the diary if you love your design. Tent London is jointly owned by Ian Rudge, founder of 100% Design and Jimmy MacDonald, founder of 100% East.
“We have created a new event: somewhere that’s actually fun, and communicates the excitement of the design industry; the antidote to the corporate world of event organisers,” Rudge comments.
I have had a quick browse at some of the exhibitors and am pleased to see two favourites in particular: Esther Coombs and her gorgeous illustrated tea sets and Zoe Murphy with her reclaimed furniture.
…..ooohh im excited already!
Let me introduce you all to our newest illustrator – the fabulous Sarah Ray.
Sarah offers some really playful limited edition prints packed full of fun and humour. We have added a few of her prints to the site but there will be more coming soon.
