It’s the final countdown!

It’s the last week already, can you believe it? This Sunday will be the last chance to get your hands on some gorgeous goodies from our talented makers. They will be travelling from far and wide (and just around the corner) to tempt you with their childrenswear, accessories, pictures and prints, ceramics, furniture, vintage delights, jewellery and many other good things.
Christmas shopping just doesn’t get any easier than this...

Joining them this week are some new faces and some Homeworks regulars:

Inspired by clothes from their Spanish upbringing, sisters Rafaela and Victoria created Elfie, a collection of beautifully nostalgic children’s clothes robust enough to withstand the rough and tumble of childhood.

Nancy Batty makes collages using vintage wallpaper and is back for another year with her ever popular giclee prints

and Janey Whitehorn returns with her distinctive lampshades and scarves, which she individually hand dyes using traditional marbling methods.

Petra Boase is back for our last week with her eclectic collection of cards, mugs, notebooks, knitted toys, t-shirts, tea towels and colourful Japanese paper balloons

 and Suzi from Twisted Twee will once more be showcasing her witty and downright hilarious homewares collection.
