day out in Brixton

I get a lot of my fabric from Brixton market and have been noticing it's transformation lately. Although you can still buy six inch African snails ready for the pot and all your fruit and veg and plastic buckets, there is now a new generation of vintage shops, cafes and delis in the covered arcades. A bit too trendy for some but I think it's lovely and a great day out. You can eat your way around the world and pick up vintage bargains like this tapestry handbag. I added an orange leather shoulder strap so that I don't look too much like a Welsh granny.

Don't forget open studio here this weekend, details are on the Dulwich festival website along with listings of other events and artists. Or email me for information if you can't find it on the website.


  1. Looks great. I used to go to Brixton, Deptford and Lewisham market when I was uni. Love markets.

  2. What a great way to personalise a vintage bag. Will definitely keep that in mind.

  3. I can't believe it - my mum used to have that handbag (in the 70s)!!
