Clutter City - last designers fair of 2013....


So this was the last weekend of fairs this year! Time to put my feet up. I have actually broken my toe so it really is! The doctor was quite impressed that I had managed to break it vertically. Ahhh only I could even do broken toes the wrong way up.

I attended Clutter City on Saturday, a lovely market in Norwich Arts Centre which goes on around 3 times a year and houses so many eclectic designers and makers. I took so many pics but it was a little dark so many haven't come out. I've included the best of the bunch. There were also tons of other fab sellers there on both days. 

 

 Just before leaving.....Chewbacca hoping to come along too....

 Layla Amber's beautiful wooden laser cut and painted jewellery. There is so much laser cut stuff on the market at the moment it was so nice to see something so beautifully executed and different from the norm. I have seen Layla's work in so many shops lately it's great to see she's doing so well.

 Lucy Blue had the cutest hand painted tails and clouds alongside illustration.

 Mulks Scandi inspired paper goods were a breath of fresh air.

 Sasha makes the most beautiful clouds and creatures. Her stall is always my favourite crammed with kittens and creatures of all shapes and sizes beautifully made. They remind me of Jess Quinn in their eccentricity.

There were so many more fabulous stalls from steampunk jewellery(with functioning cogs!!), Supercute stationary and Kawaii jewellery at Arkaya/Cute and Curious, children's clothes, beautifully crafted wooden home decor and even more on the Sunday too. There will be another Clutter City around Easter. So no more lugging cases full of prints and goodies around for a while! I shall be focusing on creating and Christmasing!

Hi Ella,

I've fallen out with Twitter, so only just saw your mention and lovely photo you included on your Clutter City post. Had to drop by and say thank you!

Looks like you had the same spot I had for my degree show at the Truman Brewery...fab space!

Love your work,

Kirsty x (DottyNoggin)
