Today’s Featured Sellers

Lynne Bartholomew – Vintage

Today’s first  featured seller is Lynne Bartholomew, who sells her vintage goods on behalf of a local charity, Basics Bank.

Basics Bank is a local charity offering emergency food and clothing to people in need across the city.  We have received lovely vintage clothes and linen in our donations which we sell to help towards funding for our van, which moves the food around to the different venues,.  At the moment the van is also collecting food from Harvest festivals in schools and churches across the area.

Having known of people in the past who have really benefitted from Basics Bank, this is a really worthwhile cause to support and I would really encourage everyone to have a look at Lynne’s beautiful stall and spend some of your pennies there, as for some children in the city, basics bank can be the difference between going to bed with a full tummy and going to bed hungry.

Sue Thomas – Mrs Bad Crumble

Our second Seller is Sue Thomas, otherwise known as Mrs Bad Crumble. Sue makes a range of beautiful accessories from scrap fabric. Here’s what she has to say about her creations and inspirations:

I’m Mrs Badcrumble  (aka Sue!)
I am an avid up-cycler of other people’s unwanted resources.
So I take remnant and scrap materials and turn them into new items.
Currently, I have been making patchwork & applique cushion covers, patchwork bags & little purses, plus fun bunting for children.
My creations are simple, quirky & modestly priced.

Recycling has been important throughout my life.
It stems from my parents desire never to thrown something away that could be re-used or reconditioned into something new or useful.
My Mum taught me to sew when I was very small,
& I have an especial fondness for patchwork,
where a story can be told from every little fabric component.

I am also a baker of delicious Celebration Cakes!

Here’s a quick pewview of her work – the tomatoes are a particular favourite for me!

We’ll aim to get some photo’s up early next week from the fair, so that those of you who sadly aren’t local or can’t make it can see what our talented cohort of crafters has produced!
