We are super excited to introduce Jessie Jumbles to you!…
I hope to make Jessie Jumbles a quirky but known brand of accessories such as Tatty Devine. -Jessie Jumbles
Tell us a bit about you and what you do/ make….
I cover buttons in vintage and retro fabrics and make them into original acessories with a vintage feel. This now includes hairclips, bracelets, earrings,cufflinks and brooches with the odd catnip mouse,bunting and cushion thrown in for luck. I also sell vintage china, books and wares.
How would you describe your style?
Nostalgic, I wanted to use my love of old fabrics and patterns. I am a vintage girl at heart but as I’m also a mummy. I introduced a childrens range but it still has an old fashioned style mixed with modern fabrics.
How long have you been making your craft items?
Just coming up to a year!
Do you have a best seller? If so what is it?
Yes, at the moment my best sellers are my rockabilly cherry earrings and my ladybird clips.
What do you enjoy most about your craft?
The fact that I can fit it around being a mum and the excitment I get of finding sections of fabrics that would look completely different once folded around a button.
Do you take part in other craft events (fairs, open houses, markets etc…)?
Did my first open house this year as part of Makers Boutique Seaside Open House but I was a last minute addition so only made a small range of nautical buttons. Hope to get more involved next year. I am a regular stall holder at Makers Boutique which is on the first Saturday of every month at the Unitarian Church, New Road, Brighton. I also have a regular pitch at The Yard vintage and makers market which is on the second and fourth Sunday of every month at Diplocks Yard, North Road, Brighton. I usually sell my vintage ware there once a month. I have done a few other fairs such as Saltdean Lido funday and hope Pop Up Vintage in Hassocks is going to be a regular thing as I loved it.
What products/ items will you be selling at The Fairy Tale Fair?
Button hairclips, earrings, cufflinks bracelets and if I finish designing them in time my new range of button necklaces.
What are your plans/ ambitions for the future? Or have you already achieved them?
I hope to make Jessie Jumbles a quirky but known brand of accessories such as Tatty Devine.
We can’t wait to welcome the very popular Jessie Jumbles and her lovely vintage style work to our The Fairy Tale Fair!
