Take a look at the ... Curly Magpie!...

Good morning all

I would like to introduce you all to a fabulous site called the Curly Magpie.  It was created by Sarah and Leanne as a platform for their shared love of craft.

They have known each other and been best friends for over 25 years now and share lots of interests as well as a long friendship.  They love craft and going to car boot sales, antique fairs and so much more.

Sarah and Leanne run great vintage and handmade markets and fairs and have lots of events planned for this year.  I am personally going to get one of these events and meet them both face to face and take a wander around their event and take in the talent that is handmade and vintage.  The vintage scene is getting ever more popular and these fairs are great places to purchase gifts for people.  I always like to buy for people for Christmas, It is handmade and not on the high street and of course very unique and special......

  1. Hi Sarah - lovely piece - I am always at these with my little business - https://www.facebook.com/jjsupcycledcreations I up-cycle everything. All of my makes were once something else - vintage if possible! Lovely to read of some people so close to my heart x Jacqui

    1. Hello Jacquij
      I am so very pleased you enjoyed the read and thank you for such a lovely comment as well.
      Up-cycle is such a great way to live and it saves so much going into land fill. One day from now hundreds of years down the line someone is going to find treasures digging in old land fill sites ....
