Crafty Fox Easter Market

brixton-dogstar-crafty-fox-market-03 Every year as spring slowly rolls around again, I begin to let my inner creativity come out. As Easter quickly approaches, Crafty Fox Markets are hosting a special event this weekend. At The Amazing Blog we try to attend something that is going on in London every weekend, while we have free time to ourselves. Many of my friends have told me that Crafty Fox Market is unique and fabulous with something for everyone – I surely will not leave empty handed.


During March 23rd and 24th there will be around 100 designers set up with their handmade crafts and art work at The Dogster in Brixton. Each of these designers are hand picked to represent their crafts and go through a thorough selection process in order to gain a spot.

Each of these designers display their handmade and unique crafts for only one day, in order to allow other designers to showcase their crafts on the second day of the market. As you walk around the market you will notice a foxy theme. You cannot go wrong with this craft market as you can pick up cards, prints, jewellery and homeware.


Some designers showcased on Saturday include Yas-Ming CeramicsSuperfumiHope and Eden, and Lucie Ellen provide you with homeware, unique toys, ceramics, and stationary.


New designers that are showcased on Sunday include JimbobartAgata DudaKirstin Stride, and Georgia Bosson offer eclectic cushions, hand drawn jewellery, and expressive animal drawings.

This market is spread out across three floors of the Dogstar and if you are feeling inspired after shopping around, attend a screen-printing workshop for only £5 and let your inner creativity shine. Feeling a bit hungry or thirsty after a full day of shopping? Stop in Tea’s Knees pop-up shop and indulge with the best British cream teas, cake, and sandwiches.

Come out either Saturday or Sunday from 11am until 5pm to discover new and exciting artistic pieces of work at Dogster. View the different designers and stalls here to have an overview of exactly which people will be displaying what on Saturday and Sunday. Families are more than welcome to come with their children and spend the day browsing, eating, and drinking. I have no doubt in my mind that Crafty Fox Easter Market will surpass my expectations from the reviews I have received.

Chocolate Creative

Having lived in the same bedroom for the last five years with the same furniture and decoration, give or take a few pictures on the wall and decorative candles, I’ve decided it’s time to update my boudoir and give it a fresh new look. With neither the budget to invest in a complete set of new furniture nor the skills to fashion my own DIY crafts for the home, I have been on the hunt for easy, simple and affordable ways to update my furnishings and hopefully add a stylish edge touch to my existing belongings. As always, I knew I wouldn’t be searching long thanks to my colleagues here at the Amazing Blog and sure enough they came up trumps by introducing me to Chocolate Creative. Chocolate Creative is a London based boutique homewares and accessories brand focused on sustainable, hand-made products, combining traditional skills such as cross stitch and embroidery with silkscreen printing. Inspired by traditional crafts, antiques, vintage textiles and images Chocolate Creative have created a range of products ranging from handmade natural linen cushions to bone china mugs. Here at the Amazing Blog we love the new range of wooden wall hooks and furniture knobs which are handmade in Chocolate Creative’s studios and guaranteed to transform the plainest furniture or wall space with their bright colours and vintage glamour inspired designs. Adorned with old fashioned landscapes and vintage embroidery and available in a range of colours to suit any colour scheme, the hooks and knobs can be used to decorate walls and furniture in an instant. We love the hooks for adding a touch of glamour (and are always handy for hanging coats, scarves, bags and hats) and the knobs which are great for adding a personal touch to newly bought cabinets or chest of drawers or for giving old furniture a new lease of life.

Chocolate Creative is available to buy online here.
