Festival of Thrift 2014

On 27th and 28th of September I attended The Festival of Thrift 2014 with Dizzy Miss James. It was such an amazing weekend so much to see, take part in and lots of lovelies to purchase from the super talented stall holders. With 40,000 visitors over the two days I was rushed off my feet to say the least but as always it's such a delight to meet my fantastic customers and put faces to names of people I've met on social media. 

The festival is a cultural celebration where people could find the fun in learning how to reuse, recycle and upcycle, saving both money and benefiting the environment. Something I strongly believe in.

It was an early start to both days having to travel down to Darlington and set up my stall before the crowds poured in. I only wish I had a chance to explore and take part in workshops myself, with it being super busy I bearly had a chance to finish drinking my tea and eat my lunch!


The star of the show was my Miss Giraffe cushion drawing in the crowds and of course the cheeky chappie that is Mr Fox who is always a strong favourite. I had such a fun weekend meeting my customers, dancing along to the Bubble Car Buskers and meeting other lovely stallholders like my neighbours Totes Adore. If you get a chance to visit the event next year I would highly recommend it as both a stallholder and visitor.
