CRAFT MARKETS
Some people think that seeing swallows is the first sign of summer but for me it is signified by the start of the craft market season. Back for another summer of craft markets in the lovely garden of Beautiful Interiors at 34 Orford Road, Walthamstow E17 are the Craft Guerrilla markets. Saturdays from May until August from 10am to 5.30pm.

I will be there each month from May onwards selling my fascinators and other handmade items together with lots of other great independent designers and makers.

1st edition: Saturday 30th May

2nd edition: Saturday 27th June
