At the weekend I took my stall to The Artisan market in Clitheroe and as usual found myself surrounded by lovely folk and their exceptional wares. 🙂
To the left of me was an amazing chocolate confectionery stall ( Lethal !) and to the right was the very talented Vicky and her quirky creations at Daisy Louise Jewellery
Vicky creates beautiful bangles and rings and other pieces from old cutlery. I think hers was the most popular stand at the craft fair. There was much to admire ~ including a gorgeous vintage suitcase which certainly had the wow factor. I fell in love with it right way. 🙂
Vicky had painstakingly covered the case in hundreds of postage stamps. Lots of them are quite old and many are from various destinations all over the world. You never tire of looking at them all. 🙂
Although it wasn’t priced up for sale and was actually there just for display purposes , I was thrilled when Vicky agreed to sell it to me. So now I am the proud owner of a very cosmopolitan case !
I also love the interior of my new travel companion. I tried to get my cat Slinky to model it for me but she wasn’t interested. So let me introduce you to a kooky kitty I couldn’t resist purchasing from the market too. 🙂
I wish I could remember the name of the lady I bought ‘Crazy Cat’ from but alas it evades me. She did however say she would love to have a stall at the Artisan Market again.
I mentioned Daisy Louise Jewellery at the beginning of the post and how Vicky makes fabulous pieces from spoons. Well here is my new ring. What do you think? As usual I ended up spending all my profits on beautiful things for myself! Now need to book a night away to show off my lovely new suitcase too……..
