Open House - Handmade Gifts in South London. This Saturday!

Spring is finally here and the city is a wonderful place once again! I don't know if everyone feels this, or if its just because us Brits get so little sunshine, but life is just better in the sun!

I'm hoping that it will continue into the Bank Holiday weekend so everyone can really enjoy the extra day off. If you're in South London and are looking for a great way to start your weekend, then how about popping along to this Open House in Herne Hill on Saturday morning...?

There is a wide variety of products on offer, most of them handmade by local designers, plus there will be coffee, cake and other refreshments available while you browse and chat.
Naomi Purkiss Boutique makes clutches and handbags, along with Kindle cases, purses and accesories all from gorgeous vintage-style fabric.
Jo Hill designs and hand makes her fabulous range of jewellery which has a modern and edgy style. You will find earrings and necklaces made from charms, bone, oxidised metal and gold filled, to name a few.
This is Wiss (me!) will be there selling a range of handmade toys and other baby and child essentials. I have used some new summery fabrics for the popular changing mats and waterproof bags, as well as some bright Bobby horses. I have been busy making felt crowns as these have become best sellers recently. I will also be taking custom orders so if there is something you would like in a particular colour or style then I am happy to make it especially for you.
You will also be able to buy handmade soaps and candles from 'Light & Bubbly', great Aloe Vera skin products from 'Forever Living' and stock up on gift cards and wrapping from 'Pheonix Trading'.
Above all, come along have a drink and a nose around, and meet some of your creative neighbours! Sounds like a pretty nice way to start your long weekend, doesn't it?
