How long have you been making your craft items?

Ive been making for a few years now.

Do you have a best seller? If so what is it?

It changes all of the time and just when I think i’ve made enough of one thing it’ll be something else that takes over in the popularity stakes.

unnamed-34

What do you enjoy most about your craft?

Being free to do what I want to do and having fun.

Will you have some special Spring time Easter creations for sale?

I hope to get around to making some Easter decorations, small sheep that maybe I can call lambs and maybe small chickens that I can call chicks?

unnamed-35

Do you take part in other craft events (fairs, open houses, markets etc…)?

I take part in Makers Boutique, and Appleducks events, Jessie Jumbles and will this year also be joining We Made This

What are your plans/ ambitions for the future? Or have you already achieved them?

Gosh, I haven’t achieved the plans that I made last time which was to make enough to have a fully stocked online outlet. There’s so much more that I’d like to do with Lubilou but i’m always running out of time, minutes are like seconds and hours are like minutes. I’d like to find a way of slowing down time and making days last longer.

Say Hello To…The Silver Hut

Tell us/ remind us a bit about you and what you do/ make….

Hello I’m Chloe, owner and designer at The Silver Hut, I make 925 Silver and Gemstone Jewelry which is inspired by my natural surroundings, especially our famous seafront and beaches here in Brighton.
I also have a ‘custom’ wedding and occasion jewelry service which is full of very sparkly Swarovski Crystals and pearls.

How long have you been making your craft items?

I have been making jewelry ever since I can remember but managed to turn my passion in to a small business back in 2010 by attending small craft and school fairs, I then took the plunge into online selling with my shop on Etsy.co.uk and also Facebook.

Do you have a best seller? If so what is it?

My best sellers are my lovely cluster earrings which I make in all colours and sizes, I can never seem to make enough of them and also any item from my Sea Life Collection; I find that my customers love to be able to take a bit of Brighton with them where ever they go!

What do you enjoy most about your craft?

I love it when you sell a piece that you have put a lot of hard work in to and have really enjoyed making to a customer and they love it just as much as you do, it is one of the most satisfying feelings ever.

Will you have some special Spring time Easter creations for sale?

This Easter my £1 lucky dips will be back with a re-stock for my younger customers with some little wearable Easter treats in, as well as some new pieces in my Fairy Tale Collection with some summery colours, silver flowers and insects.

Do you take part in other craft events (fairs, open houses, markets etc…)?

Yes I do! You can find me at all sorts of fairs and craft markets in Brighton. I put all my up coming events up on my Facebook page and my website.

What are your plans/ ambitions for the future? Or have you already achieved them?

I would like to find some fairs or markets slightly further afield of Brighton and also to have a big re-stock for my stall with some new collections and some larger more intricate pieces.
I would also like to build more awareness in my wedding collection and see if I can get to more wedding fairs, as well as I would love to get some wedding boutiques to stock my designs.

You have previously taken part in The Fairy Tale Fair. Did you enjoy the day?

I always enjoy my day with The Fairy Tale Fair! It is the most vibrant, exciting fair that I attend. It is always stuffed full of very talented designers and makers, the workshops are great and both kids and adults can enjoy them, the tea room has the most amazing cakes and savoury snacks I have ever seen and there is always a good buzz about the room!

A Festive Welcome Back to….. Bets & Bobs

A big welcome back to Emma of Bets & Bobs, who joined us in summer and we look forward to having again! We love her funny vintage themed cards, prints and creations. Find out more about them…

Remind us about you and what you create?

I’m Sussex born and bred, with a love of typography and silly words. I like putting them together to make people laugh, whether it’s a greeting card or stenciling over old sheet music.

Will you be selling some special festive creations?

Yes! I have lots of Christmas decoration designs I will be busy making over the next few weeks in the run up to the fair! I also have new ‘Brighton up your day” jars that are crafty little kits for kids (or adults!). Some of them will be to create festive decorations and they make perfect stocking fillers.

il_570xN.486260542_9ds8

Will you be taking part in any other fairs over the Christmas period?

I’m quite busy in the run up to Christmas now, so you can find me at the Makers Boutique at the Unitarian Church on 23rd November and 21st December, Craftaganza at Fabrica on Saturday 7th December and Johnny Loves June in Shoreham on Sunday 8th.  I like a variety so I get to meet lots of interesting people – fellow designer makers and customers.

You have previously taken part in The Fairy Tale Fair. Did you enjoy the day?

I absolutely loved it! Such a nice vibe and lots of kiddies around enjoying the fun too. I was quite jealous of their amazing face paints so I might have to get something festive at the next one. A lovely bunch of designer makers and a really busy and fun day.

What are your plans/ ambitions for the future? Or have you already achieved them?

After the Christmas season I’m planning to focus on improving my Etsy shop a lot and also preparing for the next wedding season, attending some wedding fairs to showcase my cards, handmade favours and event styling experience!
