I started the Crafty Fox Market because I was struggling to find South London venues in which to sell my handmade jewellery. I kept finding myself trudging from Brixton to North and East London on the weekends. I had a lightbulb moment while on the bus to a market in Stoke Newington and decided that with a I should start my own South London craft market. It’s been a really enjoyable experience and it’s great to be working with local groups such as Makerhood who share the same ideals.
I’m delighted to announce that The Crafty Fox Pop-Up Market is returning to Brixton this Easter on Saturday 16th April. The first ever Crafty Fox took place at the Dogstar on Brixton’s Coldharbour Lane last December. It was a fantastic day that saw over 1500 people through the doors to check out what the talented local makers had to offer.
Visitors also enjoyed crafty workshops and DJ’s throughout the day which created a unique shopping experience. If you missed it, you can see a taster below:
The next market will be happening on Saturday 16th April (weekend before Easter) and this time it’s going to be even bigger and better than before. Along with the usual tempting array of market stalls, there will be a café, a letter lounge, a range of workshops and some special events from our friends at Etsy.com. The über talented Jimbobart is currently working on an Easter Crafty Fox illustration so keep you eye on the blog to get the first look at his latest work.
If you are interested at having a stall at the market, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for all the information.
So don’t forget to mark the 16th April in your diary with a paw-print. As usual, entry is free so bring your friends for a fun day out in Brixton.
