Pouss Jewellery Design Etsy Made Local market Bristol City Hall 1st December 2018

Many thanks to everyone who braved the weather and turned up for the annual Etsy Made Local Market held this year in Bristol in City Hall on College Green. Having lived in Bristol for a number of years I still can’t believe this was the first time I’d ever been into City Hall!

The beautiful high ceiling space was filled with local designer makers, 60 different sellers showcasing their work each day over the weekend. I was so impressed with the curation of the range of work by the Bristol Etsy Team, everything fitted together perfectly to make one large giant pop up market of gorgeous lustworthy gifts.

As well as selling my jewellery I picked up a couple of gorgeous ceramic art pieces by Bird Can Fox (a snake and a pink shell dish), a giant massive roll out poster by Dixon does Doodles and brooches from Little Paisley Designs. My assistant on the day, Beth, had a mid-afternoon spend-a-thon with Nellies Treasures gorgeous children’s wall hangings and Victoria Williams covetable earrings. We could have easily spent a lot more, but these were just gifts for ourselves!

I also am delighted with my beautiful blooms on my stall created by the lovely Lucy Coco Floristry. Lucy created gorgeous vintage pastel posies for me, hand tied in glass jars and even added in my favourite things at the moment, dried flowers.

I loved meeting you all and thank you for coming to support myself and the Etsy Bristol community. In this world where we are overwhelmed with buying choices I’m always grateful when someone chooses to support my small business. So thank you again, it does mean a lot to me to be able to keep making and dreaming up new ideas.

What a wonderful weekend, it’s a shame it was all over so soon! Roll on next year’s Etsy Made Local market in Bristol. I will no doubt be popping up somewhere else very shortly to sell in person, updates will be here on the blog.

House of Fraser Handmade High Street Pop Up Shop - a collaboration with Made in Bristol shops

Pouss Handmade High Street House of Fraser

From 27th July to 29th July 2018 I was delighted to be invited to the Made in Bristol Shops collaboration with House of Fraser, Cabot Circus, Bristol to become part of the Handmade High Street. For one weekend four Bristol based designer makers, including me, sold our work at House of Fraser in a pop up shop run by Made in Bristol Shops. 

Made in Bristol Shops you may remember from their former home in Quakers Friar, Cabot Circus and famous Colston Hall Gift Market at Christmas time. I was thrilled to be invited to collaborate on the Handmade High Street concept, a cause I am passionate about to help to promote small local creative businesses.

I sold a capsule collection of my 'bestsellers' pieces of jewellery, pretty charms galore and my favourite marble gemstone howlite jewellery too. I was in good company, having fellow designers Ceridwen Designs, Dakota Rae Dust and Girl & Bird together in the pop up shop. Even though our styles are unique the shop looked beautiful, we took our time to carefully curate everything together on Thursday evening to make sure it looked as gorgeous as it could be.

Many thanks to those of you who came to browse and shop with us this weekend. The Handmade High Street was a success, it's so lovely that the shoppers of Bristol support buying local and unique products. I loved meeting so many of you who popped in to say hello and shop, familiar faces and new ones too. And a massive thanks to House of Fraser too for supporting us too.

Look out for more Handmade High Street pop ups this Autumn 2018. We loved it so much that we are in planning to do it all over again very soon.
