Crafty Fox Market – London & Leeds

An amazing array of stall holders with some amazing arts and crafts, from jewellery via art to homeware this market has some of the finest creators and designers out there. The quality of the stall holders sets this above other craft markets, every single one is of the highest standards and so friendly. You can always find some amazing things to make that home a little more homely.

Hackney Flea Market – Various London Venues

The Hackney umbrella stretches far, the flea market alongside another couple of markets and a record fair, all excellent. This is a truly eclectic market, where else in London in one room will you find old maps, the head of an elk, badges, handmade crafts, a perfect mod era polo shirt, copper pots and an amazing range of cakes and snacks. There is literally something for everyone and you’ll see things you never knew existed as well as coming home with a bag full of cool things.

Also it was here I met accessories nominee Promises Promises the first time.

Clerkenwell Vintage Fashion Fair – London

Last years winner, and still the best vintage fashion fair in London, accept no others.

With around 50 of the best dealers in the country, including a couple of my faves I buy a lot from like Paolo and Mike you will find something you will fall in love with. With a complete range of era’s and price points its certain that what ever your taste and your purse you can find some amazing timeless pieces.

Not only that but there is a repairs lady, live music, nails and beauty, occasionally a portrait photographer and quite frankly a rhubarb and custard sponge cake in the tea room that is so good I find my veganism tested to its core this isn’t just a clothes sale, its an entire day out.
