Homeware Showcase - Crafty Fox Spring Market

The next category for our Spring Market showcase is homeware. There are lots of great gifts to be found at Crafty Fox or perhaps just the thing to add that unique touch to your home.

Saturday 24th March
  •  First up is Sally Nencini with her colourful range of machine-knitted toys, blankets and cushions handmade using soft lambswool. Sally studied at the Royal College of Art (MA Fashion) and has designed for, amongst others, Levi's and M&S.
  • Emily Bucknell will be bringing her printed textiles to Crafty Fox for the first time. All of Emily’s designs are screen printed and sewn by hand in her small East London studio. The range includes lampshades, cushions, limited edition screenprints, lavender bags and gift cards.
  • Cecily Vessey spends her days drawing pictures of London and turning these drawings into beautiful ceramic pieces for the home, prints and cards. I bought a 'Big Ben Teabag Tidy' at the last market as a present for a friend - I loved it so much, I very nearly didn't hand it over! You can read a lovely interview with Cecily in the Frankly magazine.

  • Nom-London is a young business who will bring their range of vintage teacup candles and knitted egg cosies to Crafty Fox. I look forward to checking out their range.
  • Heart Zeena has named her business very well as we do indeed 'heart Zeena!'. Check out her range of silk screen printed textiles and paper goods. Zeena is passionate about supporting local business and she takes care to source only local, vintage and found fabrics. You can now find Zeena's goodies in Paperchase too!
  • Tobyboo uses free embroidery to create unique pieces of art inspired by London which are then printed onto a range of textiles, ceramics and even sticky tape! Tina recently won the prestigious Mary Portas homeware competition at House of Fraser - we are so pleased and predict big things for her.

Sunday 25th March
  • If you visit on Sunday, you will find Jillty Drawings with her lovely range of hand printed tea towels and aprons based on her own illustrations. The 'Oranges and Lemons' apron shown below would make a great gift for the chef of the household!
  • Parasite Ceramics is a small collective founded in 2010, run by 3 Saint Martins graduates. We love their range of locally inspired limited edition tableware featuring quirky items such as the shopping trolley shown below.
  • Tatie Lou is new to Crafty Fox. Her products are all hand screen printed in London, using eco friendly printing inks and where ever possible uses eco friendly fabrics as well as card and paper.
  • Another new addition to the Crafty Fox line-up is Siobhan McIntosh with her stylish range of printed make up bags, wash bags, purses, cushions and ceramics based on her own illustrations. We look forward to browsing her stall.
