BrisStyle Indie Designers Market

Photo courtesy Amanda

The BrisStyle market was a huge success, the size of the crowd was phenomenal and the media exposure in the lead up was fabulous. I'm busily updating the shop and recovering from a post-market head cold.


New brooches and cars are coming soon! In the meantime please don't hesitate to drop me an email or leave me a comment if you would like to order one.


A huge thank you to the entire BrisStyle team who are incredibly supportive, so generous of their time and who without I would never have thought of having a market stall.


Big thanks to my acest friend B who provided superb car service and kept the table replenished and a huge thank you to the big love for keeping me fed for the last few months, putting up with an endless flow of thread stuck in the carpet, being my daily stand up comedian and for being the most supportive, loving, amazing person in the world.


Thanks to all the Brown Owls, BrisStylettes and other online peeps who popped by to say hi. It was so great to meet so many people face to face.

For better BrisStyle market stories than this one pop over to the BrisStyle blog and have a look through the blog list in the side bar.

Great work Rebecca, I love your tiny tiny stitching. And I totally heart the teddies with ties, because a teddy should wear a tie if he possibly can!

Lovely to see you again.

ellie said...

I'm saddest that I didn't get to see all the stalls around the market. The atmosphere was fantastic. The couple of times I managed to leave the stall, everyone else seemed busy and crowded. Next time we'll have to stay around for extra time so that we can each look at all the stores!
Your's looks beautiful.
I'm battling a head cold too....

Fab Amy, so glad it was a smashing success!

Alisa : Ink Caravan said...

OMG! Sorry, sorry, sorry Rebecca... where on earth did Amy come from!??... except that she's one of my little poppets carers and I have poppets at home today and seriously on the rampage. Maybe I'm trying to conjure her up... or could I still blame it on 'baby brain'?!

Trudy said...

looks awesome! I am recommending you to people at work!
Can't wait for the next bookclub meeting.

twinklestarart said...

Wow, great post - except for the overuse of the word ACE. Really ladies, there are better adjectives.....

Like crazy choice.
