Yesterday was the last day of business for the first cycle of designers/makers at the Finders Keepers Arcade Project at Gaffa. I went in to pack my goods away and took some photographs of the displays by the other girls before they were taken down for good to make way for the next batch of crafty folks.
Frankie's Reading Room. Where you could peruse and purchase their cookbooks, Afternoon Tea and Sweet Treats, their photo album, their calendar for 2011 and other little printed bits-and-bobs. And all the furniture that you see are for sale too! We would have taken that cute bendy lamp home if didn't already have one.
Tinker by Printink Studio. A gorgeous range of handprinted textile products.
I bought that linen calendar teatowel in Marmalade, that bright orange. A modern take of those old touristy ones. Tee hee hee.
Me And Amber. Two lovely girls who make really pretty prints.
Nicky and her whimsical illustrations. She has a website but I've misplaced her business card. Duh.
Andrea Smith and her papercraft.
Made By White and The Storybook Rabbit.
I've always loved Made By White's jewellery since I first saw them at the Hope Street Markets, the first incarnation of Finders Keepers Markets.
The Storybook Rabbit's re-worked vintage plates are new to me but didn't stop me from wanting quite a few!
If you've didn't get down to Gaffa before we left with our goods yesterday, make sure you don't miss the second cycle of designers. They are setting up as I type, getting ready for the launch evening this Thursday. I'll be there looking at old furniture and objects by Explore The Kerb.
