What a weekend of markets it's been. Right up my alley. As mentioned last week I attended the Fair Trade Fair at our church and came home with some lovely handmade goodies....
How cute are these handmade Peruvian little finger puppets from Ethica Accessories? I purchased a pig, a lion and a Kookaburra for Ellie. She adores them and keeps throwing them around and picking them up and throwing them down. She is rather fond of the pig....he stayed with her all afternoon today.
I also bought a few other things - a nice handmade leather jewellery box, a pack of cross stitched notecards and a beautiful hand-knitted dark green alpaca wool scarf (some for presents, but the scarf is for me!).
As i'm just about finished Ellie's quilt, I bought this pillow cover to match the pink and red. It's sewn by hand and is so unique and beautiful. Just the thought that someone put so much time into it makes all the difference. Below are some of the numerous stalls we attended. Please consider supporting their businesses as it means our fellow crafters around the world get a fair deal. Links to websites are below the images, so check them out!
