Yesterday, my friend and I caught the last day of 'The Big Design Market', an exhibition where independent designers set up stalls and show off their creations. Most things were unsurprisingly quite pricey, although I did happen to pick up a few bits and bobs.The hall was much larger than it appeared at first, and we found ourselves having to rush through the second half so that we didn't end up spending all day there but I am definitely glad I went and got to see some amazing products.
Unfortunately, I forgot to take note of the names of some of the more memorable designers but I'll try my best to track them down.
The first things I got were two badges by Hannakin. They have adorable illustrations on them and I will link the etsy shop and instagram down below.
The next purchase was the Natural Jute Twine which will definitely be useful when wrapping christmas presents! Plus the lady who sold it to me looked a lot like Natalie Portman and was super nice.
The last thing I bought was this cute little cactus, it's a bit blurry in the picture (due to my camera dying literally seconds before I took the photo, making me use my phone) but it's in a lovely light turquoise metal holder and looks very cute on a windowsill.
I am definitely looking forward to going again next year!
