Right Royal...

Here's a few photos from today's 'Right Royal Tea Party and Knees up' at the lovely Angel's Share in Chapel Allerton. Despite the wind we all had a lovely day and my stall looked pretty good. I'm really not into the royal family, but have to say it was quite exciting to watch and the atmosphere was ace! My sister and Mum helped out and we were sat by the screen with full view of the wedding.



Monday is another fair - 'Handmade 6' run by the lovely Amy at brudenell Social Club in Hyde Park, Leeds. Come down for bank holiday crafts and cake!

Sunshine already

Well April has been quite lovely hasn't it? Lots of sunshine, bank holidays and a cheery atmosphere. I have been busy drawing, printing and sewing new items. I've chosen some new bright fabrics and tried some new themes. As soon as they're complete, I'll post some photos and update my shops!


In the mean time, good news, you can now buy 'Jil Made This' items at the lovely Bird's Yard in Leeds city centre. They are now stocking a selection of my badges, magnets and plush items on the ground floor shop! If you're in Leeds and haven't been, take a look at the amazing things on offer, from vintage clothes, and jewellrey to printed t shirts and badges! Check out the website for more details, or email me at jil_smith@hotmail.com.


The West Yorkshire Playhouse Vintage and Craft Fair was great - I did really well and met some lovely people! it was lovely to see people really liking my items. I sold lots of handmade cards and badges! Don't worry there'll be more.
I have two more fairs confirmed:


Monday 2nd May - Handmade 6 @ Brudenell Social Club in Hyde Park, Leeds - two bank holidays in a row? No plans? Well come down to this quirky little venue in the heart of Hyde Park and eat cake whilst mooching around the fantastic craft stalls - the talented line up just gets better! Crafters this month include Memo, Amy Panda and the ladies of Fox Bunting.

Sunday 5th June - Reet Sweet Neo Craft Fair @ Leeds Corn exchange - great for those who love shopping on Sundays! The Corn Exchnage not only offers a beautiful building but unique shopping experience and although it seems I'm a regular fixture, this fair never gets boring. It's warm and welcoming both to stall holders and buyers and I thoroughly recommend you come down and see what on offer and have a cupcake and cup of tea while you're there! Once again there's lots of amazing talent. Take a look at the blog and come see me there too!

Enjoy your Easter weekend and the many bank holidays we have!
