Five Reasons to Visit the Northern Craft Summer Fair

IMG_6927Back in April I attended the first Northern Craft Fair, which I loved every minute of! With the next fair this weekend I thought I’d share five reasons why I’m looking forward to it…


The Creative North – Northern Craft Fair

After what seemed like aeons this Saturday was finally the Northern Craft Fair. I was up and out of the house early to make my way over to Northern Monk Refectory to indulge myself in all things creative.

Northern Craft is an independent collective of artists formed by Sean Mort (who I think I spotted) and Carley Batley (currently living it up with a dog in the US), to promote the creative craft scene in the North. They have held several fairs in the past, however this was my first.

A Monday Morning in Moonko

A bright and blustery morning not too long ago (Monday last week to be exact), before a meeting, I found myself with a morning in Sheffield and decided to do a spot of shopping and so, I headed straight for Moonko.

Moonko is an absolute must any time I am in Sheffield. I first came across it when I worked in in the city a few years back and have been in love ever since. Moonko stock an amazing array of independent, handmade and often unique items that would be perfect as gifts or for decorating the home, I find the store so magical and inspirational.
