BrisStyle Indie Designers Market (BIDM) Update

With only 5 more weeks until the December BrisStyle Indie Designers Market (BIDM), the stallholders are in full production mode and over the next few weeks we'll be taking a sneaky peek at brand new products, fabulous favourites, promotional stuff and all other things BIDM.

Rebecca from edward and lilly will have new embroidered tissue holders available at the BiDM. Perfect for any age, these cute hand and school bag must-haves make great little gifts for Christmas. Embroidered tissue holders will be available in a range of designs including the very popular sausage dog, little bird, baby owl and porcupine. Check out a range of sweet edward and lilly goodies here.

Joan of Bedouin Bags has been busy making a stack of her 'bright bags' which are cotton shoppers ideal for supermarkets and produce markets - and a pile of 'light bags', netting bags to use when buying fruit and veg, saving on plastic bags. Very eco!! There'll also be some handmade leather 'cuffs and corsages' - and maybe even a few new surprises.

I seriously cannot wait until this market. I'm blown away by these amazing new creations, and I want to take them all home.
Sam you seriously need to start making adult-sized tops like that. :-)

How many more sleeps until Christmas, my grandson asked me on Sunday. I should have said 19 after the BIDM Market, but I don't think he would have been as excited as I am. So I'm ticking off the sleeps until 5 December - can't wait!

Bec said...
