Scottish Craft Focus: October’s Milngavie Makers Market

One of my favourite things to do is visit craft fairs. I can easily spend hours taking in the handmade delights each stall has to offer, whilst chatting to the stallholders about their work. I love nothing more than meeting people who are creative, enthusiastic and passionate about what they do. And of course, I love making a few purchases!

One of my favourite craft fairs is Milngavie Makers Market which is held in Milngavie Town Hall on the first Saturday of every month, from 11am to 4pm. I’ve been attending this craft market for the past few months and it has quickly become one of my favourites. The hall is well laid out (tip: go around the outer tables to begin with and then the inner tables to make sure you don’t miss a thing) and there really is something for everyone of any age. Oh, and the hall is really accessible as it faces Milngavie Train Station and there is a room for parking. Happy Days.

Here are my highlights from October’s Milngavie Makers Market:

Baths & Bubbles

img_20161001_145713

Elena always has one of the most colourful, vibrant and exciting displays which instantly grabs my attention. Honestly, everything looks and smells so good.  Unique Creations offer a range of cold processed soaps and bath delights, which are all made from natural ingredients (many products are vegan too). As a lover of handmade soaps, bath bombs and bubble bars, I’m in heaven.

I’m excited to try my bath bomb because it smells divine (look out for a video on Instagram) and Elena very kindly gave me some soap samples too which really bring a pop of colour to my plain, white bathroom; as well as leaving my hands soft and smelling delicious. I’m really excited to find out what products she’ll be creating for Christmas and ah, I should have picked up a mango bubble bar (left in the above photo) which people were going crazy for on the day – they smelled so good! I’m definitely going to get one next time (fingers crossed they will be there) because they are so large they could easily be cut and used for four baths.

To see more of Elena’s bath time delights, visit her store on Etsy  and Unique Creations Facebook.

Masks, Scrubs & Jaffa Cakes

img_20161001_163719

As a fellow crafter, I love meeting people who are passionate about their work because there truly is nothing nicer than buying something that has been made with love. Tara runs The Beauty Apothecarist and she is honestly one of the nicest people I have ever met. Tara makes a range of face masks, body butters, bath melts, body scrubs, bath milks and accessories to help you create the most perfect pamper evening (combine them with goodies from Elena and you’re sorted!). All of her products are free from chemicals and preservatives as they are all made from pure, natural, organic ingredients.

img_20161001_161841

I love Tara’s stall! I’ve definitely started paying more attention to the ingredients used in all of the products I use because I want to know exactly what I am putting on my skin. Tara is a fountain of knowledge and really helped me select products that are best for my skin type (I have used her Monster Mask and I absolutely love it). I can’t wait to try her Pumpkin Spice face mask. Tara also sells bath melts that smell exactly like Jaffa Cakes which I’m definitely going to try in the future (and what an amazing candle that would be!).

To find out more about Tara and all of her lovely products, visit The Beauty Apothecarist and find her on Facebook.

Reading, Colouring & Highland Cows

img_20161010_180429

I’ve not yet jumped on the adult colouring book bandwagon. Even though I’ve been seriously tempted, it’s just something I’ve never gotten around to.  I was first drawn in by Jessica’s cards, but the colouring books soon caught my eye and Jessica was more than happy to talk me through her collection.

Combining a story book with a colouring book is something I’ve never seen before and I think it’s a brilliant idea. It’s a book you can colour, enjoy and treasure for years to come – I love it!. My sister and I are going to spend an evening together colouring ‘The Tale of Jessie the Highland Cow’ (I’ll share the results with you) and I think this is exactly what Jessica intended. The author of the book, Roy Cameron, is Jessica’s father-in-law and this particular book is a tribute to Grandma Jessie Cameron, who crofted in the Scottish Highlands.

Be sure to have a look at more of Jessica’s wonderful work on her Etsy page  and you can also see more over on her Facebook page too.

Christmas Decorations

psx_20161010_175523-1

CHRISTMAS IS COMING! As much as I love Halloween (and I’m gutted to be missing out on all the fun this year because I’ll be recovering from my transplant), Christmas is my favourite holiday and I literally throw myself head first into the festive season. I couldn’t resist picking up a wooden, handmade reindeer decoration (as shown above) that I think will look perfect on the tree (and a bargain at £1.00).

Big Shed Crafts offer a range of unique, handmade wooden gifts. Have a closer look at their work over on Facebook.

Halloween & Hedgehogs

img_20161001_191738

As it was the October market, it was no surprise that there were some Halloween goodies to be found. I loved these mice dressed as a witch and pumpkin (honestly, I regret not buying them and bringing them home). How adorable are they?!

Next to giraffes, hedgehogs are my favourite animal and when I visited September’s market, I picked up the cutest grey hedgehog. October’s visit did not disappoint because I bought….a micro-hog! How cute is he?!! I couldn’t resist and it was £2.00 well spent. I just need one more to have one in every size.

If you love woodland creatures as much as I do, please go over and show Tiptoes some love on Facebook. Everything is so cute!

img_20161003_100926

So that’s my highlights from October’s Milngavie Makers Market. Sadly, I don’t think I’ll be able to attend in November because I’ll be recovering from my transplant but I will be there in December on both the 3rd  and 17th to pick up last minute Christmas bits – I can’t wait!

Look out for more posts in my Scottish Craft Focus series featuring Milngavie Makers Market and the creative people who make this market one of my absolute favourites.

I would love to know what you think of my purchases. Have you visited any craft fairs recently?

    This is a great round-up of the craft fair. I don’t usually attend them but I might start — seems like a great way to contribute to the local community. I think I might start adult coloring, it looks very cathartic.

    I love attending art & craft fairs as well. Bath & Bubbles reminds me of a soap store named Lush! I love the soaps there~

    And I want those hedgehogs, especially the gray one! It is super duper cute!!! Ugh, I love cute stuffs and would melt for it. Haha.

    I recently visited an art shop that I accidentally discovered and found so many cute Korean artsy stuffs. I’ll blog about it soon so watch out for it. <3

      I’m sure you can order them online through Jessica’s Etsy or Facebook page. There is also a hamster version and then come in German too which I thought was really cool.
