Visit to… Craft Trail | Thames Festival

Yesterday we took a wander down to the wonderful Thames Festival yesterday to check out the Craft Trail.

“A group of independent craft collectives have joined forces to promote crafts at the Mayor’s Thames Festival along the Southbank on 10th and 11th September 2011.

By developing a Craft Trail which allows visitors to follow a map to discover the huge variety of
handmade goods on offer, learn more about the processes behind the making of them and, most importantly, have some fun along the way!

The collective consists of Of Cabbages and Kings,Sannapanda & FriendsCrafty Foxwe make londonand Craft Guerrilla.”

It was brilliant to have a chance to talk to some of the wonderful creatives who were selling their work down by the river. There were a lot of tempting goodies to be had! These were a few of the stalls that really stood out to us yesterday.

1 | Crispin Finn

This was the first stall we stumbled across and WOW it was a good’n! We had the honor of being their first buyers of the day, picking up one of their brilliant greeting card. The make quality is outstanding and we love the attention to detail. Great start to the day!


2 | Uncommonly Beautiful Recycled Accessories

The stall right next to Crispin Finn was this little beauty which was selling some truly unique jewellery. Using ‘one off’ accessory pieces; including found furniture, clock parts, scrap leather to create beautiful products from the overlooked and forgotten. Brilliant stuff!


3 | Key Lime Pie

We were welcomed to the stall with big smiles from the 3 lovely ladies who are behind Key Lime Pie. A great array of fashion related items. Josephine picked herself up a stunning headband and was very nearly tempted by the Capes! Be sure to check them out on their website.


4 | Jill Tytherleigh

It started raining so we ducked under some trees and were greeted by the very friendly Jill and her wonderful stall of tasty goodies! Was lovely to chat to her about her excellent products. We love her illustration style! Be sure you go and check out here online shop.


5 | Victoria Eggs & Helen Bridges
Last but not least are our good friends Vicki & Helen who are both currently taking part in are online Market Stalls here on BlogAndBuySale. They had a very great stall set up by the riverside with a great range of printed products. Click their names above to check out more of their brilliant work.


We also saw this rather amazing fish made out of cakes! Were not quite sure what it was all about but it was incredible!
