My favourite craft and art markets in Bristol

Flowers at a market stall Pouss Design

I love supporting fellow small creative businesses and what better way than shopping. A lot of brands and makers that I follow are online only so markets and fairs in Bristol give me a chance to shop in real life with them. Here are my favourite market and fairs in Bristol, some of which are seasonal, some of which happen year round:

There are always more markets that I want to attend. On my wish list this year:

Have you got any more markets that you think I’d love? Let me know!

Etsy Made Local Market in Bristol 1st December 2018

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.

I've picked out my favourites that you will be able to find at the market this weekend, if you're there quick (I'm sure these will sell out). 

 

Bird Can Fox - Recent collaborations with Anthropologie have made her treasures in porcelain and ceramic even more sought after. Be quick to get your paws on one of these beautiful handmade pieces, definitely one you won't want to gift away, keep this for yourself!

Little Paisley Designs - Attempt to not buy the whole stall, I dare you. I love Ellie's 2018 calendar and fridge magnets, but to be honest I could easily swipe up everything. 

Sunshine for Breakfast - Cheerful motivation can be lacking in these winter months. Pep yourself up with some feel good inspirational prints and cards for your work desk. Or gift to someone who needs a little sunshine in their life.

Pipistrelle Design - My thing for ceramics runs deep, I can't resist these beautiful porcelain mushrooms. So tactile and even more stunning in real life, the feel of porcelain in your hands really is wonderful. 

Hello Harriet - Cat and dog lovers rejoice, hand illustrated goodies for your furry pals or pet fans in general. Go crazy for the prettiest pastels, hand lettering and illustrations from Bath based Harriet Gray.
