Shopping time at Handmade at Kew-I

It’s that time of the year when the festivities and exhibitions are at their peak. Lots happening all across the globe, but in my world, the focus today is on the fantastic Handmade in Kew exhibition, a contemporary craft event, scheduled to be held at the beautiful Kew Gardens in London. Did you attend it last year? If not, mark the dates (6th – 9th October 2016) in your diary and get planning. It’s not to be missed!

You will find a lot for your home and even more for your wardrobe. Gorgeous autumnal shades spun into beautiful handmade dresses, tops and scarves, all stocked under one roof is what we will be looking at today.  Want a little peep? Then, read on…

I must introduce (and in some cases, re-introduce!) some stunning work that has been created by some brilliant designers and will soon be on display at the magnificent ‘Handmade in Britain‘ exhibition at Kew Gardens, London. So, if you are in the area, get your tickets by clicking here and spend a lovely day browsing for things for your home and your wardrobe. If for some reason, you are unable to make it, then fret not…I am going to bring a little glimpse of what’s out there to you. So, stay calm and read on…

Shop sensibly, shop leisurely and above all, shop mindfully!
