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.
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!
Sum up what Christmas is to you in 5 words or less!:
Family, fun, friends, love, holiday!
Any other comments you wish to make:
Can’t wait to see everyone back in Patcham on 16th!
