Another Great Day at The Crafty Fox Market

As the shutters on the Dogstar went up on Saturday morning and the queue of people waiting patiently outside entered, the sense of excitement in the room was palpable. The pub had been transformed into a craft wonderland by all the talented sellers and looked amazing.  A steady stream of visitors continued throughout the day and along with all the crafty delights on offer, they enjoyed the brooch making workshop by Seaside Sisters, portraits by 5 year old Jamie Ferguson Jones, tea and cakes on the first floor, letter writing in the letter lounge and cross stitch with the lovely Etsy UK team on the top floor Etsy Lounge.

We were delighted to be have been featured in The Guardian Guide on the morning of the event. You can read what they had to say here

The feedback has been really encouraging so far- below is a brief roundup of what has been said:

 





 Many thanks to the bloggers for all the kind words that have been written so far.
 
The Crafty Fox tombola for Japan raised £235 for the Red Cross.

Crafty Fox would like to thank all who came to visit the pop up market on Saturday.  We would also like to thank the stall holders and all who have supported us along the way for making the event what it was. Please keep an eye on the blog to find out about future Crafty Fox events in south London.  We look forward to seeing you again soon!
