There is much excitement at Crafty Fox HQ as we look forward to our Easter Markets this weekend at The Dogstar, Brixton. There's lots to explore so get there early and get involved. The doors open at 11am (until 5pm) with free Etsy tote bags for the first 25 on each day.

The 80+ Stall-holders were selected from hundreds of entrants by our guest curators - Sian Meades (founding editor of Domestic Sluttery) and Ellie Tennant (Design Journalist). Over 60% of traders are new to Crafty Fox Market and there is a wealth of creative talent to explore.
If you see something you like, make sure you snap it up as it's all change on Sunday when a whole new cast of designers arrive to transform the Dogstar. Check out the listings for Saturday & Sunday and start planning your shopping.

A visit to The Crafty Fox Market involves much more than just shopping! Get yourself a drink then pay a visit to the top floor where you will find Mr Wingate (you can call him Sam!) and his brilliant screen-printing workshop. There's no need to book and it only costs £5 - you can walk away with your own design on a tote bag or tea towel, neatly packed up in a cute box from our friends at Self-Packaging.
Also on the top floor, take a moment to browse the vintage treasures uncovered by Blonde Fox Vintage. They will be setting up a whole vintage emporium of goodies.

We are delighted to welcome The Tea's Knees back once again with their delicious array of home baked cakes and scones. Get yours served up with a cup of loose leaf tea and shake off the cobwebs from the night before.

Every market needs a good soundtrack and we are very fortunate to have a whole line-up of DJ's for your listening pleasure over the weekend. Listen out for eclectic mixes from Mhardi, Snacktapus, D'arcy, Tom, Librarians Wanted and Hwen Rascale. Look out for a new Crafty Fox Easter Market mixtape on Soundcloud in the next few weeks.
|Jamie FJ's 40p portraits are a hit|
We've also heard a rumour that Jamie Ferguson Jones will be putting in an appearance with his 40p portrait booth. Jamie (now aged 7) has shared his talents with us several times at the market and often draws crowds of fans.
With thanks to our partners: Intuit Pay, Self Packaging, Mollie Makes, moo.com, etsy.com and of course the wonderful staff at The Dogstar
