BrisStyle Indie Designers Market (BIDM) Update - 4 weeks to go!!

With only 4 weeks left until the BrisStyle Indie Designers Market (BIDM) things are really starting to heat up!

This week, we're starting off our tour or all things BIDM by paying a visit to Suzanne, Marie and Melissa of The Seamstress and the Daughters. Marie has been sewing up a storm making cute little skirts and boys shorts while Melissa has been busy whipping up hats, bibs, toys and cars. Suzanne's been getting out the sticks and crocheting "Teapot Hats".

Next up we're visiting Melissa of Taybian. Melissa has been expanding her popular current collection to include other accessories, as well as designing a new Summer Satchel & Accessories collection. This will include matching belts, purses and clutches. You can check it all out here.

To celebrate the enthusiastic feedback Sally's Ibi tote design received, she's designed and printed an Ibis and Scrub Turkey print.

Just pick a design and colour (details here) and let Sandrine's magic do the rest!

Am I excited? You bet. My only problem is to find someone to mind my stall while I go Christmas shopping!

edward and lilly said...

Yep I've got the same problem Robyn! So exciting to see so much new stock!

Ali said...

another great post of things to add to my BiDM wish list ... maybe we should call in some special 'stall-minders' so we all can go off and do our shopping!!

Jetta's Nest said...

I definately think we need 'stall minders'...or we're going to need to do special preview markets just for us :D

Little Mary Moo said...

Sam, what a lovely job you've done covering all the exciting preps for the market. I too can't wait to do some shopping.

Helen said...

...was just thinking the same thing while reading this awesome post! Will start doing some of my shopping online via Etsy me thinks so I don't miss out!

Don't the stall set ups look amazing! Can't wait to see it all come alive.


Amalou said...

Wow those stall setups look amazing! I agree Helen, shop online prior to BiDM is a great idea.

Nosovich said...

Wow, what an impressive collection of products!! I particularly love Suzanne's teapot hat, Taybian's satchels and last but not least Sally's fantastic Urban Avine print!
